This second edition endeavours to keep the substance of the book the same, and to provide a book that is easily used and is of use to students. The purpose of the book is to help students who need to understand osteology and arthrology. The author has attempted to provide a logical framework. All the major bones and joints of the human body have been covered including a new section on teeth. The text has been written in note form and the diagrams have been made as clear and simple as possible so that they can be easily reproduced by students. The book can be used in several ways depending on the individual student: as part of a self-learning programme in conjunction with actual bones and supported by follow-up tutorials; as part of a revision programme on completion of a course of study; or as a reference book.

In Color Him Orange: The Jim Boeheim Story, award-winning sports columnist and best-selling author Scott Pitoniak identifies the sources of Basketball Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim's fierce competitive drive and loyalty to Syracuse.

He is one of basketball's towering figures: "Mr. Clutch," who mesmerized his opponents and fans. The coach who began the Lakers' resurgence in the 1970s. The general manager who helped bring "Showtime" to Los Angeles, creating a championship-winning force that continues to this day. Now, for the first time, the legendary Jerry West tells his story-from his tough childhood in West Virginia, to his unbelievable college success at West Virginia University, his 40-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, and his relationships with NBA legends like Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kobe Bryant. Unsparing in its self-assessment and honesty, WEST BY WEST is far more than a sports memoir: it is a profound confession and a magnificent inspiration.
