Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas J Duhig, M.D.(Methodist Sports Medicine Center)
Description: This book's concise sections on sports injuries would benefit most athletic trainers and coaching staff. The book also may serve as a tool to educate patients in an active sports medicine clinic.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is clear, to serve as a resource to athletes and training staff. There are few valuable resources for this audience that are as concise and easy to navigate as this one. The book meets the author's objectives to serve as a "user-friendly guidebook."
Audience: Written for athletes and coaching staff, this book is also a good resource for athletic trainers. There is also a role for this book as an educational tool for patients, with its easy to understand language and illustrations.
Features: The book presents a good balance of common and less common musculoskeletal injuries with a concise definition of each. The layout of the chapters and the illustrations are strong points. It will serve as a good reference for athletic trainers and coaching staff as intended, most importantly when to treat and when to seek a physician's care.
Assessment: This will serve the athletic community well as a quick reference for multiple common and uncommon musculoskeletal injuries. It is a valuable resource for athletes without medical training and a quick reference for trainers and coaching staff.
