We offer resources for instructors at all levels
Human Kinetics publishes books that meet the needs of higher education lecturers and professors.
Desk copies are provided free of charge to qualified faculty who are considering the text as a Required Course Text. If you are considering the text as a supplemental text or are planning to use it for personal/reference use, we do ask that it be purchased directly through our website.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide complimentary copies for libraries or tutoring centres.

Please help us to make sure students can buy the textbooks they need to succeed on your course. Please provide your campus or local bookstore with the textbook(s) title and ISBN for your course.
Select textbooks may also be ordered by your bookstore in eBook format. Click here for a list of eBook ISBNs specifically for academic bookstore use. If the text you wish to adopt has an online student resource or study guide, you may also order the online resource or study guide as a separate component.
Did you know most of our textbooks come with ancillaries? These instructor resources are free to course adopters and granted by your sales representative. You can create a well-organised syllabus using the tools from our ancillaries and test your students understanding by building quizzes from test packages using sample exercises.
What do you get as an instructor?
This gives you a selection of questions for each chapter, both multiple choice, and essay format. They can be utilised to create your own tests and quizzes for use with your students and classes.
This covers areas that students often find difficult to understand. It includes suggested course outlines, reading schedules and class assessments, as well as key references, chapter quizzes and video clips.
These ready-made presentations, for every chapter of the book, feature hundreds of slides highlighting the key concepts, including images and video clips. There’s also a blank presentation template for you to pick and choose relevant content specific to your course.
All of the figures, tables and diagrams contained in the text, sorted by chapter, can be used to develop customised presentations based on your specific course requirements. You can also use them to create flyers and handouts for your students.
