Olympic Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine: Sports Injuries: Basic Principles of Prevention and Care: v. 4 (The Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine) [Hardcover] by Per Renström (Editor)


Sports injuries are very common and their incidence is rising. Since the cost of treating even minor injuries can be considerable, prevention will play an increasingly important part in sports medicine. Sports Injuries: Basic Principles of Prevention and Care covers both scientific principles and clinical approaches in injury prevention and care. Specific preventative measures such as proper equipment, shoes, braces and taping are discussed along with more general strategies such as flexibility training and warming up. Nutrition, medication and psychological considerations are also covered.

How Brains Think: Evolving Intelligence, Then and Now (Science Masters) [Paperback] by William H. Calvin

brains Arguments between philosophers about what constitutes consciousness or intelligence have proved to be an intellectual dead-end. In contrast, William Calvin, by looking at animal and human intelligence and a wide range of evolutionary evidence, has broken new ground that should help us understand mental illness and illuminate the whole notion of what it is to be a person. This text begins by asking what intelligence is. It then moves on to the "why" of intelligence and the syntax of intelligence - where evidence from chimpanzees is important - before coming to the "how" of intelligence, the cerebral codes and Darwinian processes that operate within seconds to produce intelligent thought and action.
