Anthropometry is the measurement of human morphology, and is used in a wide range of applied and research contexts. In this volume, distinguished contributors including anthropologists, human biologists, physiologists, nutritionists and clinical scientists describe many of the ways in which anthropometry is used, and discuss problems associated with different methods of assessment. Topics include the measurement of growth asymmetry and variability in adult body size, measurement error and statistical issues in anthropometry and the construction and use of growth charts in growth monitoring. The use of anthropometry in assessments of body composition, physical performance and fitness is also discussed. The book will be of interest to graduates and researchers in human biology, anthropology and nutrition. It will also be useful to workers in sports medicine, ergonomics, orthopaedics and paediatrics.

Very fuuny book I really like it

May 17, 2010

I decided to read this because a very interesting friend had listed it on Facebook as one of his favourite books. I read a lot of Gordon Korman books as a kid and loved them and, while this one’s cover looked familiar, the synopsis didn’t ring any bells.

For some reason I remembered the school’s temperamental solar and wind power generator as being run on garbage. I also don’t remember noticing the individuality is cooler than conformity theme as personified in the character of Raymond Jardine. So while I’d read this book before, apparently it had been wasted on me.
