    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.

      Really great. Was one of my required texts for uni, and was much better value than other bookstores. Easy ordering, and very prompt delivery. Also love the order status updates! Have recommended booktopia to my uni friends.
