"Having attended a lecture by Tim Watson last year, I can wholeheartedly say what a great choice of editor. This book starts by explaining clearly and simply the concepts behind electrotherapy which, for those of us lacking in the physics area, is greatly appreciated. Each chapter includes a good range of references - helpful in an evidence-based book! Online information includes an image bank which has a good selection that you can use in your presentations but this resource could have been expanded to include some assessment tools to test knowledge. This book can be utilised by students, practising physiotherapists or in fact anyone with an interest in electrotherapy: it has something for all. It is simply enough explained for the novice but with enough depth for those with a bit more experience. If you want a good book that you will not outgrow too quickly and that you will continue to refer to, then this is the one."

- Linda Wilkinson, Physiotherapy Student, University of Southampton, UK. "Coming to the subject from a non-technical background, this electrotherapy text was definitely the right one for me as it doesn't get too technical or complicated. I'd recommend this book for anyone trying to get to grips with the subject." - Mayuri Butchart, Physiotherapy Student, King's COllege London, UK. "In summary this textbook provides an excellent up to date, evidenced based yet clinical relevant textbook encompassing all aspects of electrotherapy theory, a must for students! Not only does this underpin practice this also is needed for written exams!!? - Wayne Kitchener, Physiotherapy Student, King's College London, UK.
