  I don't agree that it's a good book for beginners unless they have taken a
course in anatomy. I think this could be easily fixed, however, with a glossary
with a skeletal diagram (any genus will do) in the book, defining the technical 
names of all the bones (tibia, femur, etc.) for quick reference.
