The Encyclopaedia of Exercise and Sport Health by Dr Peter Brukner, Dr Karim Khan and John Kron was published in Australia in early 2004 by Allen & Unwin.

Whether you want to get the most out of training, your child has been injured playing sport, you are studying physical education at high school or tertiary level or want to know which exercise can improve your health, this book has the answers. It is clearly illustrated and has non-jargon explanations for thousands of questions about the health and fitness related aspects of exercise and sport. Photos include those of well known sports identities.

The book is centred on an A-Z section with around 2000 easy to find entries on fitness, training, nutrition, psychology, injuries, illness, prevention, alternative therapies, diagnosis and treatment. Three supporting essays include: an “Introduction to the Human Body and Physical Activity”, “The Ins and Outs of Drugs” and “Emergencies and First Aid”.

Drs Brukner and Khan are highly respected sports physicians and authors of the best selling text book Clinical Sports Medicine which has had seven reprints with over 20,000 copies sold. John Kron is a registered physiotherapist and sports medicine journalist and has made sure that the text is reader-friendly.
