That kind of information is always valuable.
Michael M. Dougherty
I think his sense of humor and strong medical knowledge is definitely reflected in his writing, and his writing style keeps you interested.

His good humor and sound advice will make you feel that Dr. Gordon knows you (and he is talking to you).

I have always liked his columns in Motorcycle Consumer News, and so some of what was in there was familiar. It's nice to have it all together, by topic. He's a bit alarmist (by my nonexpert perspective) on things like antibiotics, but most of what he tells is quite relevant to motorcyclists, like what to do immediately if you get THIS kind of wound or whatever. But there's other good stuff not necessarily specific to motorcycling, and a lot of neat anecdotes and advice for dealing with hospital staff, and observations about the kinds of stuff he sees in his office.

It's possible that after reading the book you will want to tell your doctor to check for some other diagnosis than what you're given initially. That kind of information is always valuable. Your doc has finite time with you, and how many of us have left his/her office thinking "I should have mentioned this too...."

flash is an enjoyable author and if you have interest in the topic, it's a recommended book.

And how often to you get to read an author whose name really is written all lower-case?

I originally bought this book because I was preparing to intern with Dr. Gordon for a three semester period and I thought it might give me some insight into the man himself (who I'd be spending time with over the next year and a half.

Dr. Gordon has a uniquely odd, almost British type but not quite, sense of humor. I think his sense of humor and strong medical knowledge is definitely reflected in his writing, and his writing style keeps you interested. I've now spent many hours with him and am constantly amused by his antics.

Dr. Gordon is an avid biker (motorcycle), and as such is very familiar with the unique set of 'troubles' than can accompany one who rides a bike on a regular basis. However, even as a non-biker, I found the subject matter of the book quite interesting, humorous and informative.

If you are a biker, you really need this book. Think of it as part of your essential first aid kit and keep it in your paneer. If your not a biker but are thinking about it (or wish you were) read this book for an interesting look at the other side of biking that you may not hear about from your biker buddies.

Dr. Gordon is a biker, but he is a doctor first. And he is an excellent, caring one.
You will find a lot of information about your health and how your body works. His good humor and sound advice will make you feel that Dr. Gordon knows you (and he is talking to you). It is an uncomplicated enjoyable book and I highly recommend it.

My first encounter with flash gordon m.d. was after I came off second best in a fight with an emotionally disturbed suspect. flash impressed me then with his clinical skills, his ability to clearly and concisely explain my various injuries and the hows and whys of my treatment. Since then, he's been my go-to, primary care physician and continues to impress me with his talent for patient education and dry humor. flash offers a similar valuable service to the readers of "Blood, Sweat & 2nd Gear."
This collection of 47 essays is an enjoyable and insightful way for readers to get a handle on a gamut of medical topics important not just to motor riders but to anyone who recreates or spends time outdoors - or indoors for that matter. Do yourself, and anyone you travel with a favor and get yourself a copy. It's great material from a physician who truly cares.
