The field of physical medicine and rehabilitation covers an extremely
diverse group of topics, and the fourth edition of Physical
Medicine and Rehabilitation: Principles and Practice represents this
diversity quite admirably. Reviewing a two-volume textbook with 88 chapters
and 1926 pages appeared a formidable task. In fact, the text proved to be
quite readable and afforded me an opportunity to rediscover the breadth of
the specialty and to reevaluate aspects of my current clinical practices.
