Praise For Quick Reference Dictionary for Athletic Training

"There is much benefit to be derived from cover to cover. I commend Dr. Bernier's effort and would recommend this as a "must have" for all students entering the athletic training field."

- John C. McGee, PT, MPT, OCS, ATC, Journal of Athletic Training

"…very convenient for athletic trainers to consult while working with clients. It is also a unique work; most books on athletic training are textbooks. Few, if any, are reference books. This work fills a niche by serving the needs of athletic trainers who require an accessible and concise resource."
