Having used this book as part of my PT degree, I found this book very poorly organized. There are far too many headings and subheadings to keep track of what section you are in. While there is valuable information within the textbook, the excessive amount and types of headings resulted in my having to go back and forth in each chapter to make sure I knew how the information I was reading was fitting in with the rest of the text.
Also, to reference concept in one chapter that is covered in depth in another chapter, the authors just cite, in parentheses, the relevant chapter number. However, their chapters are long, and certain concepts/key words hard to find (even using the Index). It would be helpful to provide a page number instead, so that the reader can go directly to the section of the chapter that covers the aspect of the concept they are referring to.
