Positives: Good Explanation of Anatomic Terms of Motion. Includes discussion of some of the most famous muscle tests. While the Author (or MET) didn’t invent these tests, it’s helpful to have them listed.
Negatives: Very little original content in this book. Basic methodology is test, contract, relax, retest. There are more complete references for this technique. The tests and techniques that are presented are hit and miss. Some are great, in other cases, there are better methods available. Another issue, Paul had with this book, is that the treatment of different parts of the body is uneven. E.g. some subjects are covered better than others. In some cases, there are important details left out (e.g. should the hand be rotated up or down, etc.) Certain topics don’t have strengthening exercises (e.g. how does one prevent scapula winging.)
Overall: The book is pretty decent, and many of the methods are fundamental principles that any physical therapist should know. It’s well illustrated and concise. While it’s not exhaustive in its scope, many of the stretches are good, and the level of detail sufficient for many of the exercises demonstrated.
