“I know that there are some incredibly clever physiotherapists who not only know all the MSK tests, but also how to perform them accursately and even remember their names. Those people need read no further but the rest of us mere mortals will find this little gem of a book really useful…Having read it from cover to cover it will now sit on my desk so that I can dip into it whenever I need to and I will think ‘well done Paul Hattam and Alison Smeatham.’ ”
