MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a very useful book for athletic training students. Traditionally they would have to use books that didn't focus on the profession of athletic training and would be much more difficult to follow. The book is unique in carving out the most common drug therapies seen in athletic populations and providing basic principles of the effects of using any pharmacologic agent. It also does a great job outlining federal law and the degree to which it is legal for athletic trainers to dispense. All areas are covered with just enough detail for athletic trainers to be able to devise a protocol for their specific location or practice. This update is necessary because of the changes in the law and in the profession, as well as newer concepts such as pharmacogenetics."
