Running has become an increasingly popular form of regular exercise over the past several decades. For many, it is a recreational activity, for some, a passion. Primary care physicians and those involved in the medical and orthopedic care of runners at all levels will find clinically useful information in Francis G. O'Connor and Robert P. Wilder's Textbook of Running Medicine. The text also occupies an important niche as a reference for sports medicine professionals dealing with more competitive or elite-level runners.
