|“I tried skim-reading Steven Vogel’s Comparative Biomechanics . . . But was compromised: the volume has so many little gems scattered throughout that my eye got caught by the glitter and couldn’t escape. In earlier books, Vogel introduced biomechanics piecemeal. Now he has written an integrated textbook on the subject.”–Julian F. V. Vincent, Science
