Review:

"Dr. Halpern has authored the state-of-the-art text for understanding everything about the knee. It might just save you a visit to the emergency room." --E. Lee Rice, D.O., San Diego Sports Medicine

"This book is all about plain talk and advice. This is what the physician should be telling you but doesn't have either the time or the inclination to do so. This is not a book of conjecture, just plain, practical tips based upon scientific evidence." --Douglas B. McKeag, M.D., M.S., AUL professor of preventive health medicine, chair of the department of family medicine, and director of the Center for Sports Medicine at Indiana University
