Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas J Duhig, M.D.(Methodist Sports Medicine Center)
Description: This book addresses multiple topics in sports medicine, breaking down each subject into bullet points of pertinent information using specific and concise language.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a quick reference for training physicians or primary care physicians not fluent in sports medicine practice.
Audience: The book is written for, and seems to target, training physicians and students. It is too basic for practicing physicians, but there is some language that may be misunderstood by students. There is an assumption of continuity between exam findings, and the lack of illustrations is a hindrance at times. The authors responsible for the various sections are indeed the experts in those areas, but there is a lack of primary care sports medicine physicians who are experts in the recognition of injury rather than the repair.
Features: Although the book covers multiple sports medicine topics and allows for quick reference, the information would have been better arranged in anatomical order rather than alphabetical. For instance, encountering an acute shoulder injury may lead the reader to search for that particular topic. Because this book is intended for those not familiar with sports medicine, the same reader looking to reinforce a differential diagnosis had better be familiar with the possibilities before referencing. Not many physicians specializing in other areas could differentiate a SLAP lesion from a cuff tear. These are the types of diagnosis that should be grouped under a body part or presentation rather than alphabetically.
Assessment: The book could have been arranged in a better way to optimize its use. Alphabetical arrangement of a multitude of sports medicine diagnoses would not be beneficial to training physicians or medical students, the indicated audience ("residents, interns and medical students"). The information is useful and the book provides useful caveats and pearls at the end of each topic, making the book more valuable. There is little reference to pertinent literature in many areas of sports medicine on diagnosis and prognosis, which would have been a great addition.
