HASH(0xb0cb0be8) out of 5 stars Compact and info full. Different style. July 7 2014
By Kirk G. Painter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have basically memorized much of this book for my EBP class in by doctorate program for physical therapy. However, I found it a bit of a hard read. Very compact information, and a different style. Perhaps style differences are due to the writing styles between the U.S. and Great Britain's (the author's).
HASH(0xb71a957c) out of 5 stars Best there is but not perfect for me June 26 2014
By Courtney S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a speech therapy doctoral student, I find this book thorough, but the examples are not related to therapy, so I don't find them helpful. According to my professor, the books on EBP for therapy are not as good as this book.
