From the PublisherReview quotes from previous editions
This book is an excellent addition to the literature on back pain. Biomechanics is fundamental to understanding the physical basis of back pain, but many biomechanical textbooks are very technical and difficult for the non-specialist. What is new and different about this book is that it presents complex ideas very simply and clearly, and applies them to the clinical situation.
This volume is to be highly recommended to all doctors and therapists who deal with patients with back pain.
Professor Gordon Waddell DSc, MD, FRCS Orthopaedic Surgeon, Glasgow [Amazon]
This excellent book presents in one location a synthesis of much of the recent literature on the mechanical factors contributing to low back pain. The logic of the text is easy to follow and each chapter builds upon concepts and ideas presented in earlier chapters. I can think of few books to compare to it and I recommend it highly.

It is refreshing to see a book that interprets and integrates the literature instead of simply repeating studies.

The book is one of the most evidence-based books on the market. The authors are research active and always updating their knowledge.
