    I Also Recommend:

    A cornucopia of exercises.

    I like two things about this book. The first is that it is very thorough and complete. Exercises, both stretching and strengthening, are included for basically every major muscle group or extremity motion. Furthermore, the book is divided up well enough that you can find what you're looking for fast. <BR/><BR/>Secondly, I like the fact that this book is evidence-based, meaning that it backs up what it suggests with references from the scientific literature. In fact, it's so good that it can be a great place to start a literature search from. <BR/><BR/>Know too that this book is mainly written for people who have some medical background of sorts, so if you're just an average reader looking for some workout exercises, this probably isn't your book. Rather, I feel like the book is better suited for athletic trainers, personal trainiers, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, massage therapists, and so on. Practitioners looking for more info on the shoulder might also want to check out Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff -for more detailed ex's on rotator cuff tear prevention and rehabilitation.

    Fantastic book

    Very practical and easy to read. Thoroughly referenced to support the modalities described. I've already committed highlighting and tabs to it.

    The fifth and sixth edition have both the same errors on the lum

    The fifth and sixth edition have both the same errors on the lumbar plexus lateral cutaneous nerve and femoral nerve. Both nerves should be on the POSTERIOR DIVISIONS group., NOT ANTERIOR DIVISIONS. Kisner and Colby kindly check it out on page 359 in 5th edition. the same error  in the 6th edition!

    I like two things about this book. The first is that it is very thorough and complete. Exercises, both stretching and strengthening, are included for basically every major muscle group or extremity motion. Furthermore, the book is divided up well enough so you can find what you're looking for fast. Secondly, I like the fact that this book is evidence-based, meaning that it backs up what it suggests with references from the scientific literature. In fact, it can be a great place to start a literature search on some topics its so good. So who's the book for? Well, its mainly written for people who have some medical background so if you're just an average reader looking for some workout exercises, this isn't your book. Rather, I feel like the book is better suited for athletic trainers, personal trainiers, occupational therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, exercise physiologists, massage therapists, and so on.

    Poor bounding and paper

    A good book is written on poor quality paper and is connected together with poor material(spiral bound).

    Will never go out of style.

    Books like these will never go out of style. I have an earlier edition of it and after practicing for 12 years as a physical therapist, I STILL use the darn thing. I have seen the new edition and it is very good. Well referenced and a good place to start for literature reviews on selected topics. The authors have certainly done their homework.
