Herman: Springer Publishes 2nd Edition of Physics of the Human Body

The second edition of Prof. Irving Herman's book, Physics of the Human Body, was published this month by Springer.

The first edition, which Springer published in 2007, evolved from an undergraduate course Prof. Herman developed at Columbia Univeristy with the same name.

This second edition includes expanded and cross-referenced treatments of motion, sports, multisegment modeling, pregnancy, diseases and disorders, and aging. It builds upon the first edition in many other areas as well, including improved treatments of muscles and the throwing, hitting, and motion of balls and additional problems and solutions.

In addition to being a text, this book can be of more general interest to physicists, biomedical engineers, physicians, physical therapists, evolutionary biologists, and others who want to learn about the overlapping worlds of physics and medicine/human biology.
