Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Pietro Tonino, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book deals primarily with the physiological aspects of sports medicine.
Purpose: The book discusses many exercise-related topics on a physiological level and discusses genetic and environmental factors.
Audience: Although the book is described as appropriate for sports medicine specialists, it will be most appreciated by exercise physiologists, physiologists, and primary care specialists.
Features: The book lacks any significant illustrations and is poorly organized. Its appearance makes it difficult to read.
Assessment: This is a book intended for exercise physiologists, not sports medicine specialists. Some clinicians may find some topics interesting, such as the discussion on diet and ergogenic aids, but the audience for this book is very limited.
