"The addition of a CD-Rom to supplement the practical descriptions is probably worth the expense of buying a new copy alone. Video clips on (the) CD-Rom provide that additional perspective when explaining a practical topic that is sometimes dificult to do in 2D format. Well done to the author and publishers for this welcome innovation." Nicola Phillips, Physical Therapy in Sport (2002)
