"This is an attempt to provide current information in a field of sports medicine that has emerged with the popularity of ultramarthaons, crossfit-type endurance events, and triathlons. ... The audience seems to include any healthcare provider interested in this area or who treats endurance athletes. ... I am happy to have this book on my shelf as it is a nice, concise resource on the important topics that are unique to endurance events. I look forward to updated editions in the future."
