From the reviews:
"This book offers a fresh perspective of musculoskeletal medicine grounded in scientific concepts, and presents logical models for understanding both acute and chronic pain mechanisms. ... this book also tackles some controversial topics, separates fact from fiction, and proffers references for further reading. There are 15 chapters citing 60 references. ... I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book in its entirety. Though pocket-sized, it packs an honest punch, with thought provoking perspectives on the limitations and management of musculoskeletal conditions." (James Inklebarger, Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine, Vol. 28 (1), 2006)
"This is a very short overview of the therapeutic limitations and indications of what the author calls musculoskeletal medicine. ... The different manual treatment systems ... are briefly discussed. It is apparent from further reading that this booklet is intended to reach general practitioners." (S. Geens, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 72 (1), 2006)
"J. K. Paterson, lately president of the British Association of Manipulative Medicine, has published a short, elegantly written, pocket-sized treatise on a huge subject. ... I am unsure as to whom, or to which grade of which specialty this delightful book is addressed. I have come to the conclusion that all of us would benefit hugely from reading this inexpensive but profoundly thoughtful monograph. ... the messages are transparently clear, careful and wise - a valuable pocketful." (M. Laurence, Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol. 88-B (3), 2006)
