Extract

The second edition of Bull's Handbook of Sports Injuries, edited by William O. Roberts, MD, an associate professor of family medicine at the University of Minnesota, is, like the first edition, a small paperback text, which, as Dr. Roberts indicates, is a "mix of evidence-based and expert opinion... of the authors." The book is heavy on text, but the information is nicely subtitled in each chapter for easy reading and reference. The text is a blend of overview and detail. The size of this book does not permit an in-depth discussion of most entities; yet, the reader does not finish a section feeling "shortchanged" in knowledge, but satisfied by the comfortable depth of discussion on the topic.
