1. Why this book? What niche or need does it fill, when there are already so many books about sports medicine?

This book's intent is unique in that is designed to be the premiere resource for board preparation and review; additionally it is multidisciplinary with contributing editors from primary care sports, orthopedics, physical medicine, and athletic training. Authors are from all medical and related specialties.

2. In addition to those preparing for board exams, does it cover developments that established sports physicians should know?

The book is current, with questions that are current, as well as all ACSM position stands and statements on line. The text also inlcudes cutting edge chapters on topics such as Ultrasound and Platelet Rich Plasma. more
