I think that Hamilton Hall has some very good information in this book, if only it was organized in a more accessable manner. I do not enjoy the question and answer format of this book. I much prefer things to be in a scientific order, say in a list or a chart. I also do not feel like this book covers all possible injuries and that his attitude of "back to work is always best" is maybe not always the best thing. A good read for the discerning reader, but maybe not for everyone.
