This could have and should have been a good book. The problem is that it's not written for the average person. It simply has way too much information that goes way beyond what you need to know. It reads more like a dissertation or thesis than a self help book which is implied by the title. The author, an M.D., is obviously very knowledgeable. However, it should only have contained practical information that helps you to improve your knee pain. Instead it tells you much more than you need to know which is not helpful. Apparently the book seems to have been written for the sole purpose of impressing doctors or knee specialists.

Those who need an anatomy and physiology lecture can benefit from the overwhelming excess of information. I've been reading about 15- 20 pages per day for the last 2 weeks and have fallen sound asleep at least twice while reading. Although thorough and complete, it's not at all practical. If you want a really helpful book about knee problems (that's more practical) I recommend "The Knee Crisis Handbook: Understanding Pain,.....(long title)" by Brian Halpern.

I gave this a 3 star because it does have a lot of information. Unfortunately, you'll have trouble staying awake while reading it.

This is the most comprehensive book about everything you need to know when dealing with painful knees; the anatomy of the knee, exercises, alternative and conventional treatment, and explanations of various surgical procedures. Well written and easy to read. A good reference book.

I found this book very informative. I read it while bedridden after my knee surgery and found the range of movement exercises very useful. I practised them two times per day and my doctor was very happy with how good my ROM was two weeks after the surgery. I also didn't know that gout was a form of arthritis before I read this book. I don't have gout, but I thought that was an interesting tidbit. Since I was awake for my laproscopy, I am wishing I had read it before. This book would have helped me ask more informed questions while the doctor was inside my knee.

The only reason I took one star off is because it seems to be a bit dated on the medicines available. Most of the medications this book suggests for people with arthritis are the ones that were pulled for causing heart attacks.
