"For those daunted by, disillusioned with or doubtful about an evidence based approach to practice this excellent book provides a refreshing approach to neurological physiotherapy. This is an essential purchase for all physiotherapy departments and should be considered a core text for students. This book provides an excellent baseline from which to acquire the knowledge and skills to work with patients with neurological impairments and disabilities ."
