"Each chapter includes a list of chapter objectives and a succinct summary of key concepts that were discussed in the chapter. The text makes extensive use of summary boxes and clinical pearls to highlight important concepts and information in the text. The illustrations are well done and add to the text. The chapters have extensive and up-to-date references. The target audience for this text is the practicing clinician interested in sports rehabilitation; however, it would also be an appropriate textbook for a rehabilitation course for athletic training students."--JBJS, www.ejbjs.com, November 2005, Review from the 3rd Edition
