A myriad of sports medicine textbooks have ﬂooded the publishing marketplace in the past 20 years. Sports Medicine, and its ﬁrst two iterations as Pocket Sports Medicine, was developed and marketed for the increasing demand of PDA users. The genesis of this concept evolved around the observation that many young physicians, residents, interns, and medical students need a quick way to access information “on the run.” Relevant sports medicine topics were determined, an outstanding faculty of contributing authors was recruited, and 150 sports medicine topics were identiﬁed. Pocket Sports Medicine was organized in a fashion that would allow the reader or “accessor” an opportunity to learn or review basic information on topics as varied as neck injuries in athletes, ACL injuries, LisFranc fracture-dislocations, groin injuries, and “Little Leaguer’s elbow.” Although not designed to provide a comprehensive review, a single topic could be reviewed in less than 2 minutes. The consistent organizational structure follows a theme of 1) history, 2) physical examination, 3) imaging, 4) differential diagnosis, 5) treatment, and 6) pearls and pitfalls. Topics are organized in a bullet point outlined format. The editors believe that the printed format of the popular PDA derivative has a place in the lab coat pockets of residents, medical students, and ER physicians. When dealing with sports injuries, time management is at a premium. In the time that it takes to walk to the medical school library to read about hemarthrosis, you can read about the topic in Sports Medicine. We hope that you ﬁnd this sports medicine contribution an asset to your education.
