Review:

"This book would be beneficial to both clinicians and students. I find the addition of clinical tips, or ‘pearls’, particularly useful as a quick reference guide. As an academic who teaches functional anatomy to occupational therapists, I find the scenarios particularly useful for helping students see the whole picture rather than just individual muscle actions." Fundamentals of Hand Therapy: January 2010

"Overall, a very clear readable style is adopted throughout, with theory supported by various anecdotal case studies. Excellent use is made of illustrations, and many chapters contain the helpful addition of ‘clinical pearls’ or ‘tips from the field’, which are an attempt to make transparent the links between theory and practice. In conclusion, this is an excellent core text for reference purposes." Reviewed by: British Journal of Occupational Therapy Date: Aug 2014
