[The authors'] prominence within their respective disciplines gives this book depth and credibility. IN writing this book I believe the authors have provided an excellent reference book for aspiring sport medicine physicians. By combining the expertise of these sport medicine specialists, this book encourages the development of clinical examination skills, promotes the understanding of the pathology underlying many sports injuries, and can be used as a guide on the optimal diagnostic tool to confirm diagnosis.

The layout of this book is user-friendly with each chapter beginning with a brief outline of the content, thus making it an ideal quick reference guide. At the end of each chapter the authors provide a useful list of additional references for future reading.

This book will find an audience among doctors who are involved in sports medicine and who would like to develop their clinical examination skills, and their management of sports related injuries. I think physiotherapists working in sports medicine will find this book engaging and it should prove a very useful reference book particularly when deciding on the optimal diagnostic test.
