Editorial Reviews

Scott H. Grindel
This is the first edition of a field manual designed for the sports medicine professional. It is written entirely in outline format and is a summation of The Hughston Clinic Sports Medicine Book. The book was designed as a concise field manual for the sports medicine professional. It is a handbook intended to assist in the treatment of athletic injuries and diseases. This is a worthy objective met only in part by this book. This book is intended for the sports medicine professional, including athletic trainers, orthopedic and primary care sports medicine physicians, residents, and fellows. This is a plausible audience, but only if they have a strong sports medicine background and have the original text for reference. The authors of the original text come from varied backgrounds, including orthopedics, primary care, athletic training, and physical therapy. I found most of the illustrations useful in understanding the accompanying text. They were particularly effective in describing the physical exam sections. The book was not referenced throughout, although there is a suggested readings section at the end of the book if one looks for it. The text has a very clean and professional appearance, very similar to the textbook from which it derived. I found this book to be of limited usefulness, particularly for those with limited background in sports medicine. Many pertinent details in the identification and management of some problems were left out in the attempt to summarize the original textbook. It is at times very difficult to follow because of the outline format used. When used in conjunction with the original textbook, it is very useful, although thisdiminishes its utility as a field manual.

O'Toole, a natural science expert, introduces the lay reader to the miraculous design and communication systems which characterize insects; how they cooperate in groups; their reproductive lives; and their habitats, ranging from desert to arctic tundra, land to sea. He also demonstrates the vital role insects play in the ecology of the planet. More than 250 color photographs make the book a coffee table item as well as a comprehensive text. Though marketed as a "companion to the PBS Nature mini-series," the text is outstanding in and of itself. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
