The first half of this book covers the role of the body and mind with regard to injury, injury prevention, and the reasons injuries happen. The second half of the book is comprised of an injury troubleshooter's guide, with a diagnostic chart. The first half of the book I didn't find organizationally put together that well. There were nuggets of information I found valuable, such as the sections on shoes, what to look for in a doctor, and the chapter on non-site-specific bone and muscle injuries. But overall this isn't a book I found valuable for organizing my training to avoid injury. I think part of the problem is, the first half of the book is just too short for the subject matter. The second half of the book is organized very well, and the diagnostic chart makes it easy to quickly find information on specific injuries. Within the troubleshooter's guide, each injury is broken into sections such as, diagnosis, cause, treatment, etc.; making it easy to locate the information you seek. Overall I'm glad I read this book. My opinion is that this book is more valuable as a reference, than a general guide to injury prevention. ( )
