  • Brief and to the point, the Tarascon Sports Medicine Pocketbook is a great, little book loaded with tons of information. I love all the Tarascon Medicine Pocketbooks. I also strongly recommend the Internal Medicine and Pharmacopoeia. All small, packed full of information and charts and can fit all in one coat pocket!
