"This book primarily covers the history and physical examination of the spine and upper and lower extremities. ... The audience is anyone who is interested in or deals with patients with orthopedic/musculoskeletal problems in their practice. It is most appropriate for nonorthopedic practitioners/residents and medical or physiotherapy students. It is also appropriate for junior residents in orthopedic surgery or physical medicine and rehabilitation." (Scott A. Magnes, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2017)
