Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Delmas J Bolin, MD, PhD (Virginia Tech)
Description: This collection is a concise and comprehensive review of the breadth of sports medicine. The book is divided into sections that include general considerations, medical, musculoskeletal, diagnostic, rehabilitation and sports-specific and special populations. Rather than lengthy prose, each chapter is in bullet format with salient points immediately referenced.
Purpose: This was originally designed for quick item review for those in a sports residency or who are preparing for a certification exam. Although there are older exam review texts available, these authors have taken the bullet format and expanded it to incorporate referenced evidence in diagnostic and treatment recommendations.
Audience: This book is designed for students, residents, and sports medicine residents. More than just a review book, the efficient bulleted format would be of use to practicing physicians who want quick, practical reference material on musculoskeletal injuries. The authors' vast experience in sports medicine, rehabilitation and orthopedic sports medicine is well represented by the book.
Features: The field of sports medicine has many facets and each is given attention in the book. Although sports and sports injury are given ample attention, other often overlooked areas also are covered; for example, legal and ethical considerations and exercise for special populations including those with chronic medical problems, joint replacement or disability. A minor criticism is that the book is not broken up by figures or pictures; chapters that require figures (diagnostic imaging, taping and bracing) are amply illustrated.
Assessment: Just the facts" is a novel approach for a sports medicine book. It is not designed for, and shouldn't be used as, a primary textbook. For those who have some experience in sports medicine, this book offers a quick and thorough review with adequate references to point the reader to additional information if necessary. For family practitioners, internists, pediatricians, or nurse practitioners, it is a time-saving reference worth having on the shelf in the office.
