Kindle Pick of the Week: That's Gotta Hurt by Dr. David Geier

Not a free pick this week, but a great pick for anyone who plays or watches sports.

 

In That’s Gotta Hurt, the orthopaedist David Geier shows how sports medicine has had a greater impact on the sports we watch and play than any technique or concept in coaching or training. Injuries among professional and college athletes have forced orthopaedic surgeons and other healthcare providers to develop new surgeries, treatments, rehabilitation techniques, and prevention strategies. In response to these injuries, sports themselves have radically changed their rules, mandated new equipment, and adopted new procedures to protect their players. Parents now openly question the safety of these sports for their children and look for ways to prevent the injuries they see among the pros. The influence that sports medicine has had in effecting those changes and improving both the performance and the health of the athletes has been remarkable.

Through the stories of a dozen athletes whose injuries and recovery advanced the field (including Joan Benoit, Michael Jordan, Brandi Chastain, and Tommy John), Dr. Geier explains how sports medicine makes sports safer for the pros, amateurs, student-athletes, and weekend warriors alike. That’s Gotta Hurt is a fascinating and important book for all athletes, coaches, and sports fans.

William J. Murray Clothing line

Yes, Bill Murray has a new clothing line out.

The William Murray Golf line will break away from traditional golf apparel companies by bringing a new look and feel to the industry with a little irreverence and a lot of style. The style will truly be first-of-its kind in the golf world and not one you'll typically see on the course. The incredibly fashionable line will consist of uniquely designed polos, shorts and hats. And even a golf buttoned down, which has become Bill's signature look on the course. Bill was actually recently seen wearing one of the WMG polos at the Ryder Cup the other week. Here is an awesome photo with him in the gear.

With the launch, golfer Pat Perez, one of the more unique personalities in the game today, will also officially start serving as the first WMG ambassador. Pat will be outfitted in WMG gear while on the course.
