Edition year: 2008
HorizonsUnlimited description:

What is the best thing to do when the bike goes down and you suffer a bad patch of "road rash?"  How do you prevent infection and minimize scarring?  Answers to these questions and practical advice on many other medical situations motorcyclists encounter, are contained in this new volume from flash gordon, m.d. For years, gordon has been dispensing practical medical advice with a liberal dose of dry humor through his "Medical Motorcycling" column in Motorcycle Consumer News. As a doctor who rides motorcycles, he combines knowledge gained from many years of medical practice with the straightforward non-nonsense style of a veteran rider. He has the knack of explaining medical conditions and injuries in plain language that makes sense, and does so in an entertaining and highly informative style. Though the advice is directed to motorcyclists, all the medical information he provides is applicable to the general public, and has been enhanced by clever illustrations by Craig Harrison.
