Classic Human Anatomy in Motion: The Artist's Guide to the Dynamics of Figure Drawing Kindle Edition
Fine-art instruction books do not usually focus on anatomy as it relates to movement, despite its great artistic significance. Written by a long-time expert on drawing and painting human anatomy, Classic Human Anatomy in Motion offers artists everything they need to realistically draw the human figure as it is affected by movement. Written in a friendly style, the book is illustrated with hundreds of life drawing studies (both quick poses and long studies), along with charts and diagrams showing the various anatomical and structural components.
This comprehensive manual features 5 distinct sections, each focusing on a different aspect of the human figure: bones and joint movement, muscle groups, surface form and soft tissue characteristics, structure, and movement. Each chapter builds an artistic understanding of how motion transforms the human figure and can create a sense of expressive vibrancy in one's art.

However the book is great! Genuine print and quality. Writer is simply one of the best in her class. A great treasure for a beginner who has dream to draw human figure accurately with or without a model.
I really enjoy the book and am following it religiously to learn human figure drawing as accurately as possible. This book leans more on theory side than on the drawing side. However, if one is an absolute beginner and self-learner in this branch, I feel like one should also buy a companion book for basic human figure drawing from classical writers like George Bridgman,Andrew Loomis, Burne Hogarth or Peck.
