This is a very comprehensive book. It includes the newest information in physical therapy ethical and legal issues, laws and regulations, therapeutic communication, documentation, reimbursement issues, and teaching and learning. In Chapter 10, I enjoyed test taking strategies for students. I also learned a lot about clinical part of physical therapy including orthopedic, neurologic, pediatric, geriatric, etc. The pictures are awesome. I recommend it for all physical therapist assistants.
