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).

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.
