    Save your daughter's health - read this book!!!

    If you have a young daughter who is engaged in sport you need to read this book. Many coaches are only interested in winning games. Win or lose, your daughter's health needs to be protected. This book lays out the physical challenges for young girls and then presents a plan t o prevent injuries. My daughter is nine years old and involved in soccer. I don't know any thing about soccer. When you don't know a lot about a sport, it's easy to defer the decision making to those who know more. This book will empower you as a parent to safeguard your daughter's health and keep her on the field. The book reads like a detective novel. It 's very interesting.

    Great book about a terrible trend.

    This was the most informative book on the subject matter that I've been able to find. After having a daughter go through the trials and tribulations of ACL reconstruction I was amazed to find out how prevalent this injury is among high level, female, athletes. The depth of information was not only astonishing but helpful in understanding the issues surrounding what is happening to our young women. This is a must read for coaches, athletic directors, trainers and parents.

    Calling all parents of female athletes, this is a wake up call!

    A well written and documented book from beginning to end. Topic is fresh and relevant, providing useful information for parents. The only question is will they listen?

    Interesting, but disappointing

    Overall, I found this book disappointing. It starts with the overall premise: women are injured at rates far greater than men. My biggest gripe is that more than half the book is spent relaying stories of injured players and/or teams that have suffered rashes of injuries. Human stories are always interesting, and I suppose this helps make the book a bit more readable. But, that isn¿t what I understood the book to be about. As a father with young daughters beginning to show an interest in sports, I wanted to know why this is so. Sadly, having read the book, I don¿t know the answer to that question. He mentions, here and there, some possibilities. Women move differently than men. Women are beginning to play the games more aggressively, like men. Women have a different hormonal mixture. Girls are specializing at too young of an age. But, he doesn¿t get into any detail on why any of these possible causes individually, or in conjunction with the others, are causing injuries. Even within those injuries, he spends an inordinate amount of time talking about ACL injuries, with very little attention paid to other injuries. It may be that my expectations were too high.
