      Really great and easy to understand reference, the layout makes it easy to read and is not just a huge bunch of overwhelming text. Plenty of tables and diagrams, I enjoy studying and refreshing my knowledge with this book.

        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.
