5.0 out of 5 stars The True Encyclopedia of Whiplash April 29, 2000
By A Customer
Croft and Foreman are to be greatly commended on this work, the BEST in the field of whiplash traumatology. Apparently, there will be a 3rd edition coming soon.
The nonsense coming from Canada this year, including the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) Cassidy study (April 2000) and anything that Robert Ferrari has written, and is likely to write (Whiplash "Encyclopedia"), is an utter shame. The author of the recent NEJM study (Cassidy) has been accused of falsifying data (Emma Bartfay, PhD vs. Cassidy), and the views of QTF and Ferrari on chronic whiplash have been refuted over and over again.
Research in this field is of two types, with one out-weighing the other exponentially: insurance company-sponsored stuff such as Cassidy's, the "Quebec Task Force" or "QTF" study(1995), and much of the Ferrari literature IS VASTLY OUTWEIGHED by the other 95% of the university-based and engineering research that refutes it.
This book, especially in its new edition (pending), is and will be the definitive treatise on whiplash-related injuries. It is not written for the layperson, and covers complex medical topics. However, for physicians and health care professionals working with the whiplash-injured, it is indispensable.
When all the hubbub surrounding the latest weak studies from Canada subsides, Foreman and Croft's work will still be standing tall and unscathed. And that is because these two authors understand the difference between a strong study and a weak one. It is NOT true that you can use the research to prove anything. For example, the April 2000 NEJM study by Cassidy et al. states that when you remove the tort system, whiplash-injured persons miraculously heal faster.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book on whiplash to date! October 5, 1999
By A Customer
It is not often that you find authors who have so thoroughtly referenced a subject. It is written with a good command of the English language and is carefulle reasoned.
This book should finally lay to rest the myth that whiplash is somehow "not real", a notion that the insurance industry is most likely propagating.
This gem of a book is a must for all clinicians involved in the care and treatment of whiplash and its related disorders. It is also essential reading for all those insurance industry claims reps who are truly concerned about their insured injured persons, and not just their jobs!

The book is well written and provides and in depth look at the diagnosis and treatment of Whiplash (neck injuries). A must read for all health care providers that are serious about treating these injures. May be interesting for some motivated readers not in the health care field.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Textbook on Whiplash Ever September 9, 2000
By A Customer
A Tour de Force! Is there going to be a Third Edition? Let us hope so, given Arthur Croft's ability to consume, digest and make palatable to us the most recent research on the topic of whiplash. Fortunately, Dr. Croft is still writing (see his articles in SPINE with co-author Dr. Michael Freeman), and still at the forefront of the profession. As a chiropractic physician, his contributions are all the more important in the medical world, which often borrows from alternative health without crediting it. Not so with Croft, who is credited in medical circles worldwide. A thoroughly readable, well-referenced and enjoyable textbook which will open your mind to a syndrome (group of injuries, really) so misunderstood.
Any physician without this text on his/her shelves should not be treating persons injured by whiplash.
