Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: This dictionary related specifically to the foot and ankle might be the first book of its kind.
Purpose: This unique attempt at a reference in a dictionary format is a novel approach to an area of clinical practice that crosses multiple specialties. A book like this can be justified because there is nothing else remotely like it available in podiatric medicine.
Audience: It is written for a broad audience, and while it certainly will be useful for students and residents or others in postgraduate training, it will also have appeal to those who do not primarily treat the foot and its associated structures. Dr. Mooney is a respected author in the field.
Features: The book is well written, peppered throughout with over 200 reference tables/boxes and 40 illustrations, more of which would have been helpful. Dr. Mooney is frank enough to admit that no dictionary is ever complete, and generously includes her contact information should the reader feel so inclined to supply additions! There is a somewhat helpful cross-referencing system to the various tables and boxes, which would have been easier to use if it had included page numbers. Interestingly for a dictionary of podiatry, terms such as "podiatric medicine," "chiropody," "doctor of podiatric medicine," etc., are not included, but perhaps these would be considered superfluous for the audience. Clearly, the book is aimed at the U.K. market. Subsequent editions might do well to become more generic in certain areas to appeal to a broader audience.
Assessment: While a book like this will have appeal to trainees and possibly those who do not treat the foot on a primary basis, the title is somewhat antiquated. The term "foot science" harks back to the time of Dr. Scholl and his associated foot remedies, and lacks a certain professional tone.
