Flexing against resistance

Via a comment on Grognardia: Two Amazon reviews by the late Dr. John E. Holmes, who wrote the rules for the first basic set of Dungeons & Dragons.

One is for a collection of stories by the early-20th-century fantasy writer A. Merritt; the other is for the fourth edition to Aids to the Examination of the Peripheral Nervous System:

For every muscle there is a photo of a clinical evaluation showing position of the limb etc and the instructions ("The patient tries to flex against resistance"). For each muscle there is listed the spinal segments and periferal nerve. Included are standard sensory maps and plexus diagrams. Fits into your instrument bag or white coat pocket. Worth getting if you see only 5 neuro-muscular problems a year!


Still not sure what the relationship is between this blog and my Tumblr. Are they friends? Enemies?
