Format: Hardcover
This book is a good summary of the available literature for biomechanics accident reconstruction. Where the reviewed literature is often used by defense experts, the author takes personal criticism at the defense experts for using this literature in assessing injury potential. This is done quite often to a point where it is rediculous and quite defamatory. It is obvious from this book that the author has aligned himself with the plaintiff side of low speed collision analysis. I would not recommend this book if your looking for literature on this matter which is impartial.

Format: Hardcover
The New England Journal of Medicine wrote a review of the first edition of this book. Here are a few quotes: "Motor Vehicle Collision Injuries is an ambitious book with multiple objectives aimed at multiple audiences with various levels of background knowledge."

"The author has developed a thoughtful, practical guide for physicians in private practice for ranking the severity of neck and back injuries. He describes a fairly detailed physical examination for head injuries and provides a comprehensive discussion of multiple syndromes after trauma to various parts of the body."

This book is a second edition and about twice the size of the first. It is well researched and authored by a dozen or so health care providers and other experts. Provides useful information to use in the clinical and legal settings.

I have weighed Dr. Nordhoff's materials in conjuction with my experiences, training, and testing as a collision reconstructionist. The approach taken by Dr. Nordhoff is to address the potential for injury causation in the real-dynamic world. Unlike much literature which aligns to injury defense (see previous 2-star post by a defense "expert"), Dr. Nordhoff remains open minded to the potential for injury (minor to severe) to occur in low to moderate speed collisions.

Much of the reported data in other literature focuses on testing in controlled laboratories, whereas Dr. Nordhoff looks specifically at those issues which can exasperate injury, such as out-of-position occupants and pre-existing conditions.

I would highly recommend this text if you are seeking to determine the potential for injury in the real-world.

This book (2nd edition) is quite comprehensive and largely covers all issues relating to its title. Personally I found the book very informative and a great guide to the field it is intended to cover. Anyone wanting to learn more about the field of studies it addresses should most definitely have read this book. Clearly the author/s are well versed with the subject matter, as is evident from the interrelated subject matter diversity of the book. Surprisingly, considering the volume, the manner in which it is compiled and written makes for somewhat easy reading.
