    This book is OK. I think its a bit out of date now. I would not recommend it particularly to podiatrists (like me) as it lacks depth and the chapters are a touch superficial. I think if you are coming from a sports background generally and don't already have much foot and ankle knowledge then I'm sure it will be very helpful. but if your already lower limb trained then there are better books out there.
