Reviews

"It was a joy to read a book on this topic. ... Every dietician should read this book and all those working in sport or rehabilitation should study it. ... not only provides a practical overview of the nutritional needs for adaptive sport but also thrusts paralympic sport into the spotlight. This is the only book of Its kind and I hope It IS the first in a series dedicated to this field."
-American College of Sports Medicine

"... the text is an excellent example of how we, as trained sports dietitians, can put our medical and clinical knowledge into play in a challenging but very rewarding field of sports nutrition. We need to understand the medical situation and limitations faced by these courageous, inspiring athletes, and assist them to be the best athletes they can be through excellent sports nutrition. Thanks Liz, for giving us this unique opportunity to learn from your wealth of experience."
-Alison Walsh, Accredited Sports Dietitian
