Athlete safety and the prevention of sudden death on the field are growing concerns in sports and physical activity. That's what makes the groundbreaking Preventing Sudden Death in Sport and Physical Activity, Second Edition by Douglas J. Casa and Rebecca L. Stearns so essential. In a recent 5-star review, Ernest Eugene, MS, BS, from Virginia Tech, writing for Doody's Review Service raves that,
“The new edition of this important book reflects the updates in this field as a result of the research since the previous edition. I will use in my daily practice.”

Don't just take our word for it.
We conducted extensive market reviews prior to publishing a third edition of the internationally acclaimed Understanding Viruses. Here's what some of our reviewers had to say:
"I am impressed with the author's ability to include topical information, basic biology, and clinical relevance. This begins in the first chapter and is consistent throughout. This text fills a major gap between advanced virology and introductory biology texts… This text is the perfect blend of clinical virology, epidemiology, taxonomy, replication dynamics, and pathophysiology."
"I really like this textbook. The approach to viruses corresponds to my thoughts of needing to know about the interaction of the virus and the host and not just the diseases that they cause."
