Lee Brown has provided the most comprehensive text in isokinetics to date. Each chapter was written by an authority and researcher in strength and conditioning. A unique aspect of the text is that it not only deals with the application of isokinetics to exercise testing, training, and rehabilitation, but also the limitations of isokinetic dynamometry. Clinicians, students and researchers will find the numerous references a valuable resource.

An excellent review of isokinetic exercise and testing with the unique perspective of performance parameters. I would highly recommend the text to anyone in the exercise science, fitness, or rehab field.

This is going to be an invaluable source of information for generations of students in many areas including physical therapy, athletic training, aging, and basic movement science. The chapters cover an amazingly wide spectrum of issues ranging from methodology to basic science, and to applications in clinical and athletic training areas.

Lee Brown and his colleagues have organized a combination of chapters that will enable individuals with little previous experience in dynamic neuromuscular testing in humans to understand the advantages as well as the limits of isokinetic measurement and the current issues that need to be resolved.
V. Reggie Edgerton, Ph.D.
University of California, Professor
This text bridges the gap between the clinical and applied practice power. The book highlights studies in a variety of areas of isokinetic research, including functional applications, unique populations and limitations. Students will gain a historical perspective on isokinetic research through an overview of isokinetic dynamometry and examination of its evolution.
