It’s said that when your feet hurt you hurt all over, and this is so true. As an athlete and competitive figure skater since the age of six, I have suffered my fair share of foot ailments. Over the years I have had broken toes, metatarsal stress fractures, ankle sprains, plantarfasciitis, stubbed toes, and countless blisters. My poor feet had one great advantage: my father happens to be a foot doctor! He guided my feet through each injury with the advice I needed to heal. The next best thing to having your personal foot doctor as a dad is to own The Foot Book, by Drs. Rose and Martorana. This comprehensive book will provide you with the important information that you need to stay foot healthy. I recommend The Foot Book for anyone who wants to keep their feet happy.(Kimmie Meissner, World Figure Skating Champion, United States National Champion, Olympian)
The authors do describe their goal in the preface as providing information to those in need of podiatric care; the book can serve as a good guide to readers in that group, as it contains general basic information on a wide range of disorders.(Choice)
