Editorial Reviews

Review from previous edition: "This is an excellent handbook and reference guide. Its comprehensive review of sports medicine with a focus on quickly accessible, usable information is rare in this field...its compact size and logical arrangement by body areas makes it excellent for quickon-field review [but it is] equally useful as an office reference. Just as Harrison's Manual of Medicine, 16th edition is in every medicine resident's white coat, this handbook should be in every sports medicine fellow's medical kit." --Doody's Notes, Mar 2007
