Available in both hardback and paperback, this book provides full-colour, international coverage of the whole of sports medicine. With a preface by the president of the International Olympic Committee, and contributions from world authorities in sports medicine, it provides invaluable guidance for doctors and other health personnel who serve athletes. Basic issues are addressed, as well as practical considerations such as injury prevention and treatment, assessment of fitness, methods of conditioning, environmental factors, nutrition, psychology, exercise and disease, and exercise in rehabilitation. Emphasis is placed on the athlete in competitive sport, but the recreational sportsman and fitness enthusiast are not forgotten. The exercising child, the older person and women in sport are given special consideration.

"The Olympic Book of Sports Medicine is a monument. Amid a welter of confusing publications, it stands out as a clear yet detailed examination of the subject by more than 50 distinguished international figures. Despite its cost, the book is a valuable investment for anyone involved with sports medicine or the training of serious competitors. The authors write on their particular field of specialization so that the reader obtains uniform insight over the whole field." The Times;
"For the health professional or sports scientist wanting a comprehensive textbook on the whole of sports medicine, this is a good book to have. The Olympic Book of Sports Medicine should certainly be standard reading for anyone taking a Diploma in Sports Medicine." British Journal of Sports Medicine';
"There may never be another book quite like it. The Olympic Committee, together with the International Federation of Sports Medicine - which was set up, believe it or not, 60 years ago - have collaborated with Blackwell Scientific to produce a grand, commemorative first volume of an encyclopaedia of sports medicine. It contains much science and a dash of history and is to be formally published as the flame leaps into life at the stadium in Seoul. It is a mark, in some senses, of human advance, not of times or achievements but of knowledge and techniques. This first volume is a general compendium, noting the way science is reaching into all aspects of sports training and medicine." The Guardian
"This is a most enjoyable book to read as well as to study, and is very strongly recommended to any Team Doctor looking after a team in residence, as well as his supporting staff of physiotherapists, chiropodists and nurses. Much is also of relevance to team managers and games organisers... I consider it good value." British Journal of Sports Medicine.
