I have these two books since the 1980's, one of them signed to me by Dr Travell. Although dated and written before the advances in diagnostic methods of the last 20 years they are still an invaluable source of clinical information. Some of their assumptions and non physio-therapeutical tratments are quaint and outdated but clinical descriptions are classic.

This is the bible for myofascial pain and dysfunction! But it needs to be available as an ebook!
