Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Geoffrey E. Moore, MD, FACSM (University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine)
Description: This dictionary, published in paperback for the first time, has a self-explanatory title.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a multidisciplinary lexicon for sports medicine and sports science.
Audience: The intended audience is students, coaches, athletes, and medical professionals. A dictionary for this audience is a difficult, but worthy, objective, particularly for those who have less formal education. The book is probably less useful to physicians and sports scientists with doctoral degrees.
Features: This dictionary is adequately, but not luxuriously, illustrated. The overall print quality, paper quality, and appearance of the book are quite good. The limited number of references are pertinent and reasonably current. The definitions themselves are quite thorough, and there is extensive cross-referencing within the text. The main weakness of this book is that the short list of contributors does not have adequate breadth of training to cover all fields related to exercise and sports. This paperback is compact and will not crowd useful training room space.
Assessment: Exercise and sports are integrated biology and, thus, reasonably involve many, if not all, fields regarding human biology. The book is strongest in regard to anatomy, biomechanics, basic exercise physiology, pharmacologic ergogenic aids, and sports psychology and sociology. Areas that are not as well represented include specific sport-related terms, advanced exercise physiology, etiology, therapy, medical techniques, and pathophysiology. Students of fields likely to encounter the domains of exercise science in this book, such as physical therapists and kinesiologists, will likely find this a useful book.
