Ethier and Simmons have crafted a masterful book clearly capable of introducing engineering students of multiple disciplines to the fascinating field of biomechanics. This text should find wide application in providing sufficient background for a fundamental understanding of this important, emerging area. The depth of coverage will serve well as a foundation for further investigation at the upper undergraduate or graduate level. Yet, little prior knowledge of biology is assumed. The topics covered include clinical specialties in which biomechanics has lent to the understanding and improvement of human health, including the cardiovascular, optometry, and musculoskeletal areas. Based on a long-standing course taught to non-bioengineers, the presentation of material is clear and straightforward. Illustrations are of excellent quality and rich in content. This text will inspire many students of traditional engineering areas to think of biomechanics as a fertile discipline worthy of further pursuit. - James E. Moore, Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Texas A&M University
