From the reviews:
“This book is fantastic; I read it with great interest. The author provides an in depths explanation of the functioning of the human skeleton and its underlying mechanisms. It is a thorough and comprehensive scientific book, yet is it easy to understand for a layman. It offers step by step explanations for exercises as well as lots of pictures and diagrams. … I highly recommend this book for everyone who is interested in improving their exercise practice and for those who experience problems with joints.” (Anna S. Klevak, Amazon.com, December, 2013)
“Dr. Mark Pitkin of Tufts University School of Medicine shares a unique approach on preventative and restorative health practices through his book, ‘Biomechanics for Life: Introduction to Sanomechanics.’ … The book is appealing as it makes novel concepts easy to understand for real-life application. It is written in clearly articulated plain language and is a highly informative resource. It has high application value for students, health professionals, and researchers in medicine.” (Amazon.com, September, 2013)
“This book focuses on the topic of sanomechanics. Using language that is easy for the common individual to understand, the author provides a detailed description of what sanomechanics entails complete with examples, and demonstrates the effects the program will have on long-term injury prevention and health. It is a valuable guide to a healthy lifestyle based on a thorough understanding of the movements of one’s body.” (Amazon.com, June, 2013)
“The author explains in detail his perception that there is a significant and meaningful connection between human health and skeletal functioning. … The book should appeal largely to practitioners or readers who have an above average understanding of biomechanics. … It is useful for readers who want to apply their understanding of biomechanics to their daily life. … Overall, it is informative and allows readers to apply their knowledge of human motion to practical settings.” (Erik H. VanIterson, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2011)
