Seriously though, while these suckers are friggin' heavy, they are some of the best resources you can get your hands on when it comes to the shoulder. The two volumes offer quite a bit of comprehensive information on just about every shoulder condition you'll run across in the clinic (or hospital). Obviously they aren't for the general public, so if you're a layperson without a medical background, you should skip these. Rather, they're geared toward medical people such as ortho docs, surgeons, PT's, or any other professionals who deal with shoulder patients regularly. Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff for anyone who has shoulder pain or rotator cuff issues. It's for patients but can come in quite handy for the surgeon with overworked shoulders as well!
