If you like to understand what's happening to your body while you use it and you know some basic yoga, I recommend this book (though it's very pricey). Arranged by muscle groups, it has beautiful pictures of how the muscle connects to your skeleton. It then explains how the muscle works and the other muscles around it that help it do its job. Finally there's an section with asanas for activating the muscle, awaking awareness of the muscle, contracting the muscle, and stretching the muscle. The illustrations show a skeleton doing the asana with the activity of the muscle highlighted. ( )

Remarkable computer-generated graphics show muscle positions and functions with great clarity. It suggests that the chakras are associated with different spinal nerves. Not as much mechanical detail as "Anatomy of Movement", but the pictures are very cool. ( )
