Clinical Sports Medicine is a concise sourcebook gives practitioners and sports trainers a concise review of diagnosis and management of all sports-related injuries. The emphasis is on on-the-spot management and the format allows quick access to treatment information.

A review in The Physician & Sportsmedicine:

"Clinical Sports Medicine offers a valuable perspective that's different from other sports medicine books. The text should be part of any sports medicine library and will be particularly helpful for rehabilitation information. The price is certainly a bargain"

"Best Sports Medicine Book I've Ever Used!"

August 22, 2001
Reviewer: A reader from Vancouver, B.C. Canada:
"The Second edition of Clinical Sports Medicine is the best reference book I have come across ... I find it very easy to navigate with great illustrations and information. The references are all very recent and evidence-based so you feel confident in following the authors' recommendations... These authors have really done a fabulous job of classifying sports medicine information in a logical and easy-to-use format. I highly recommend it to anyone in the sports, fitness, and/or health fields!"

The New Zealand Journal of Sports Medicine recently reviewed this edition and said 'The world's best sports medicine book just got better'!

Review of Clinical Sports Medicine from the British Journal of Sports Medicine:

"This, the second edition, has been thoroughly updated and revamped (see the section on Achilles tendons!). It is a superb book for the clinician working with athletes, outlining the treatment of injuries in a straightforward and clear way. It is such a change to read a book written by physicians rather than surgeons, with consequently a much more functional approach! This book should be read by all sports physicians and physiotherapists in training and should be by the desk of anyone likely to treat athletes' injuries, GPs and specialists alike.

The first part "Fundamental principles" is excellent for someone starting out in sports medicine, but reminds us all of the basics. It lists more sites of stress fractures than most of us will see in a clinical lifetime, with hints on management. The "Regional problems" (part B) is more comprehensive than in any other book I have read with important "practice pearls" in some chapters (why not all?). There are often, as for ankle pain, lists divided into common causes, less common causes, and "not to miss" problems, making it very easy to build one's own differential diagnosis. The layout could not be easier to follow, with a hugely detailed contents list at the start and good index, and the book is well referenced with advice for further reading. There are also sections on "Sports performance", "Special groups" (the section on the disabled is brief but good), "Medical problems in sport", and "Practical aspects of sports medicine"-the doping screening, etc. So nothing is left out. If there is a fault it is that the clinical section is too small a part of the whole.

This book will sell like hot cakes, and be on every course reading list." - Tom Crisp
