Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Pietro Tonino, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book presents an overview of common sports injuries.
Purpose: This book is designed to serve as a reference for those who deal with athletes and their injuries. Such a generalized text is needed, and, for the most part, this book meets its objectives.
Audience: The book is written at an appropriate level for its intended audiences, including physicians, athletic trainers, and therapists. Most of the authors are authorities in their areas.
Features: The book is well organized, but the quality of illustrations is poor.
Assessment: This is a well-organized reference text and a good overview of sports medicine. However, as with any contributed work, some chapters represent the biases and beliefs of the author, which may not be in accordance with current popular ideas.
