    Hi, Ian G
    Who did you purchase your new Michaud book from? Can seem to get it for less than £80. Please advise. Thanks.

    Hi, Tom. Great that you've finished your new book Human Locomotion. Can I order three copies directly from you? If so, what'll be the price, please?

    Hi Simon,
    Thanks for taking a look at the book and ref 27 in chap 6 is Nigg B, Cole G, Nachbauer W. Effects of arch height of the foot on angular motion of the lower extremities in running. J Biomechs. 1993;26:909-916. It could also have been Nawoczenski D, Saltzman, C, Cook T. The effect of foot structure on the three-dimensional kinematic coupling behavior of the leg and rear foot. Phys Ther. 1997;78,404-416. I'm not sure why I picked the former b/c I like Deb's work a lot more. The $100 is USD but if you're interested, I plan on selling it for the rest of the year to people from Podiatry Arena for the student price of $80. I can't lower the shipping as that's what it costs to go from Boston to Australia. You definitely won't need any of the foot/ankle info but I think you'd like the research on joints in the hip and pelvis.

    Thanks for the interest and I can sell 3 books at the student price of $80 each. I looked into discounts on shipping and I can't get the shipping price to go down unless it's a bulk order of 15 or more. Even then, it only goes down to around $20 per book. The website isn't set up for different prices but you can just click on the student price and don't worry about providing a valid student email. As I told Simon, I'll keep the price to people from Podiaty arena at $80 for the rest of the year.

    Well my book came today - that's 12 days from Massachusetts, US. to Hertfordshire, UK. Very impressive.

    First impressions are good. Very nicely bound and presented. Haven't really delved into it yet, but did my usual litmus test and skipped to the bit about the 'distal transverse metatarsal arch'. Pleased with what I read, which made a lovely change. I have a feeling this book and I are going to get on rather well.

    Great job Tom.

    Thanks Tom!

    I am in need of a good resource on orthotics as I am due to become a fully fledged podiatrist this year!
    Many thanks

    Many years ago at The University of Western Sydney's Podiatry department, Tom did a day course for graduates. Such was the forward thinking of the time - we got paid in text books! Outside your square people, that is where one needs to be - everyone kicked a goal. Rob

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. You can get the book for the student price at www.humanlocomotion.org. Good luck with your last year in podiatry school.

    USPS has lowest shipping rate for books. Make sure you tell them it is a book your shipping.

    I will have to order book as well.

    Hey Steven,
    USPS is great but they don't do media mail from US to Australia so it still costs about $30 USD per book to ship. That's why I've tried to keep the price down with the student prices. Let me know if you've heard of a cheaper shipping price as it's always seemed high to me.

    Is the new michaud's book a update starting from the basics or would your recommend newbies read the first book and then the second book? Thanks,

    The new book is a complete rewrite so the old one isn't necessary.
