New books from Human Kinetics

Both books are outstanding, I have read them both...

A full-color offering, Sports Injuries Guidebook is an authoritative, quick reference guide to over 130 injuries, including ligament sprains, muscle strains and tears, fractures, and internal injuries.

Written by 25 leading sports physicians and therapists, you'll find easy-to-find entries that include descriptions
of common causes, injury identification cues, explanations of symptoms, full-color anatomical illustrations, treatment options, and a plan for returning to action quickly and safely. Sports Injuries Guidebook also ensures that you'll be spending more time on the field than in the dugout by providing additional coverage on conditioning,
body maintenance, and nutrition to keep injuries at bay.
