"The authors note that this book is the first of its kind to discuss ACL injuries based on gender, and as such fills a void in the medical literature. The inclusion of unique topics related to female athletes make it an important contribution to the field."

-Carol Federiuk, MD PhD (Oregon Health and Science University) for Doody's Review Service
