    Great resource.

    This book I took to work and keep on my desk. As a physical therapist that works in a large teaching hospital, you name it, I see it. It is therefore impossible for me to remember everything and so I depend upon good reference books such as this one. I use it primarily for the neuro info that I'm weakest in, but it covers many areas relevant to most PT's.
