From the reviews:

"This book will as serve quick reference for non-sports medicine physicians and medical residents. The succinct presentation of the topics makes the book a good addition to an office library for quick reference. … This quick reference may be helpful to medical residents, medical students, and clinicians with an active patient base. … The authors do a fine job of what they set out to do, creating a succinct quick reference for clinicians whose patient base may include athletes."
