The information is not only excessive but also given in random order with no logic, which makes me think that the author sometimes does not understand what he is writing about. Probably, he just enjoys the book's pseudoscientific language. The book has many "pearls of wisdom", e.g. "arthrology (joints) consists of glenohumeral, AC, sternoclavicular, and scapulothoracic articulation." (p.349). Arthrology is a science, for god's sake! It can not consist of articulation, it's "a science concerned with the study of joints" (Webster). Part -logy in terms refers to a science or theory. Some diagrams are misleading: the largest rectangle symbolizes the least amount of ATP used (p.68) etc. Each chapter has a glossary, but don't expect to find good definitions there. For instance, "LORDOSIS: The maintenance of a normal anatomic lordotic curve while lifting any object." I would ban this "textbook" as a misleading one. It might have some useful practical stuff, but it cannot be called a textbook at all.

I think this book is excessive in the amount of information presented. It goes from straight, forward information to difficult to understand technical biochemical information that is not needed for PTA's. It is wordy, using quotes that are unnecessary, if not out of place, for learning the information. If it stuck to the basics and explained it well it would make for a less laborious reading. I am a first year PTA student and I have to read this book. I tend to go to my A & P book that presents the information in an easier to understand format.

I agree with some other comments here, but have to add one thing. I constantly have to use other reference books to look up important details that are missing in this book. One example is the Thomas test which is a commonly used test - not even mentioned in this book. I had to buy another book from Kendall which is helpful.

Love having the eBook version, helps to be able to flip through and print what I need. It is in a readable format for an ebook

This book is good for what it says it is. It gives various ortho problems and suggestions for rehab, however it is really FUNDAMENTAL- as the title says so you may very well have this info in your other texts.

This is one of 2 texts for Therapeutic exercise class. This by far, the one I read first. Simple, to the point, informative without being too "smart".
