Reviews

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.

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.
