As with the first edition, this textbook will remain a staple in the educational setting for both student and teacher alike. If an O&P student needed one book on gait, this would be that book. For practitioners, the textbook is a ready reference that can augment existing knowledge and inform clinical practice.""- Bryan Malas, MHPE, CO, American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists;

"" summary, this second edition includes several excellent additions to a classic textbook which should be on the book shelf of ever postgraduate student studying human gait, and every physiotherapist with a specific interest in gait analysis.""- Marietta van der Linden, Physiotherapy;

""This is a first-class publication on a very important subject not discussed as commonly as other issues in orthopedics. The authors are well-known experts and the book is the result of vast clinical and research experience. This is the best book available on gait analysis.""- Riad Barmada, MD, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine, Doody Enterprises, Inc.;

""Gait Analysis: Normal and Pathological Function is a comprehensive text for basic gait analysis, systematically covering the fundamental components of normal and pathological gait. The clinical focus of this text makes it a useful resource for clinicians and students of all levels.""- Dr. Vivienne Chuter,University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, Physical Therapy Reviews;

""Their excellent and subtle changes have enhanced the book's value, both as a primer and as an encyclopedic reference on gait. The authors allude to what the observer ""sees."" New methods of gait analysis have more accurately characterized various parts of the gait cycle. Chapter 9 is really a summary chapter of the first part of the book, which covers normal gait. Valuably, it sums up the parts and puts them together. This chapter integrates the total limb function at each phase of gait, elevating observation to a more sophisticated understanding. The use of clinical photographs continues and helps readers relate the illustrated point to a patient or series of patients being treated- an especially valuable feature. The chapters on kinetics, running, and stride are updated and valuable. The chapter on dynamic EMGs has been expanded to discuss the relation of muscle control to the various aspects of gait, both normal and abnormal-an essential concept. Reading the first part of Gait Analysis: Normal and Pathological Function will add dimension to observing gait and will be ideal for providing readers having an advanced interest with a more complete and clear technical understanding. In either instance, reading this text and comprehending the data make this text clinically pragmatic and worthwhile.""- Alfred D. Grant, MD, NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases, New York, NY, JAMA
