The most up-to-date research techniques are discussed along with directions for furture research...In short, this is a book that will become a classic text and should find its way onto the bookshelf of anyone with a therapeutic interest in the humnan body."
Posture and Mobility, January 2013
"The editors have successfully integrated current scientific knowledge of fascial anatomy and physiology with clinical applicationas...Helpful videos are available via the book's website to complement some of the chapters...The website also provides opportunity to report typographical errors, and as a first edition of a very wide subject, these are probably unavoidable...The book should be of interest to various health practitioners, including physiotherapists, osteopaths, and chiropractors, to improve understanding of different clinical concepts while not aiming to provide detailed information regarding specfic manipulative techniques."

Professor Peter Huijing has forty years experience in teaching biomechanics, physiology and anatomy of the locomotor apparatus to students of a great variety of backgrounds, ranging from medical students to students of human movement sciences and bioengineers. Professor Huijing has performed teaching and tutoring duties at the introductory level as well as intermediate, PhD, and post-doctorate levels. He is co-author of a textbook Inleiding van de Kinesiology van de Mens (translation - Introduction to Human Kinesiology) Educaboek, Culemborg, The Netherlands (1983) which was later fully revised (1990, 1996) and published by Wolters, Groningen. Professor Huijing has also been co-editor of several congress proceedings and his intensive research activities in the fields of functional anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of muscle and its related tissues has led to over 200 journal peer reviewed articles between 1981 and 2012 among which are several review papers. In the same period, a similar quantity of other single authored and co-authored contributions were published in congress proceedings, books etc.

However sentences and sometimes entire paragraphs are very difficult to follow as the standard of English is frequently poor. One often has to reread sentences / paras several times in order to determine what the authors are saying and this issue should have been much more thoroughly addressed by the editors and the publishers. Churchill Livingstone / Elsevier publish in the scientific and medical arenas and should have been able to access knowledgeable (better?) proof readers.
Sadly this issue has downgraded this reader's appreciation of this book.
The book can be used as a basis for studying the anatomy and physiology of connective tissue, but also as a reference book for diseases of connective tissue, joints, bone, brain and fascia.
