Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Levy, team doctor for the New York Giants football team, and writer Fuerst collaborate in this handbook for serious amateur athletes. One section deals with major body parts (e.g., "The Shoulder"), common injuries, and prevention or rehabilitation. Though anatomical drawings would have clarified this section, symbols indicate which injuries require a doctor's care and which respond to first aid. Other sections describe common injuries in 19 sports and cover basic workouts, nutrition, first aid, basic sports physiology, and problems that are unique to women, children, and senior athletes. Complex concepts are explained clearly and related to the athlete's training. The exercises are well illustrated, and anecdotes from pro sports (e.g., Bo Jackson's hip injury) let readers identify with the pros, if only through injuries. Nontechnical language sets this practical book apart from others in the field. Recommended for both academic and public libraries.
