          Comments about Brukner & Khan's Clinical Sports Medicine:

          There seem to be a number of errors in this book and i am only 1/3 through. A few of the page numbers referred to for tables/diagrams are wrong. And some of details seem to be around the wrong direction (internal rotation instead of external rotation etc). Is otherwise well written and very helpful.
