Horn Book Magazine 11/1/1998

Muscles appear as mighty mechanical equipment of the human body in this vivid and succinct introduction. Bold, computer generated photo-graphs and drawings delineate particular muscles and the overlapping sheets of muscle grouped in several regions of the body, magnifying the muscle surface. Simon's well-ordered discussion emphasizes the skeletal muscles along with the nonvoluntary muscles and the heart muscles. This book interconnects particularly well with Simon's earlier titles The Brain and The Heart, which describe the control centers for muscle operation and provide close-up views of the heart. The complementary nature of the books in this series promises an ever-expanding apprecia-tion and understanding of the complexities of the human body. m.a.b.
