      Jurmain's books is, well, quite thorough to say the least. Anyone wanting to know how osteoarthritis works, how it affects both the bone and the tissue, is in for a real treat. He does, however, have a rather pessimistic view of behavioral reconstruction (especially for someone that has done a great deal of it himself).
