"This is a welcome and successful update of a text covering a topic that is extremely relevant to occupational therapists working in all fields." (International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, July 2008) From reviews of the first edition: "This is an excellent resource for people seeking an introduction to evidence-based practice (EBP)." "A major strength of the book is that Taylor uses frequent examples to illustrate the information provided...Another strength of the book is the insight Taylor provides into a range of relevant EBP resources." "I would highly recommend this book as an introductory practical text providing an excellent launching pad for those wishing to explore and use EBP principles." (Australian Occupational Therapy Journal) "I would just like to commend you on your excellent book ... I have spoken to many of my fellow students who agree [that it has been] written in such an easy to understand format [that] we consider this to be one of our bibles! There should be no excuse for not passing the research module!" (Claire Humphreys, Second Year Undergraduate Student, University of Coventry, UK)
