    The 'bible 'of measuring joint motion.

    Anybody that needs to measure the motion of the joints in the body will want to read this book. I call it 'The Bible' when it comes to the standardization of measuring joint motion. In an age of evidence-based medicine and the need to objectively document improvement, this book is most welcome.
