"... this is a well-balanced book combining both the theoretical and practical aspects of treatment and examination of the spine. It follows a clear, logical, uncluttered format and is easy to read. It would be valuable for any undergraduate or newly-qualified physiotherapists as it successfully brings together the different philosophies commonly used by clinicians. It has some practical ideas for teachers in this field too. It would be useful as a reference book for general practitioners with its step-by-step approach to the thorough physical examination of the spine."
Manual Therapy (1998) 3(2) 112-114
