Books Info:

Blood, Sweat and 2nd Gear free pdf So what is the best thing to do when the bike goes down and you suffer a patch of Road Rash? How do you prevent infection and minimise scarring? Answers to these questions and practical advice on many other medical situations are contained in this new volume from Flash Gordon, the motorcycling doctor. For years Flash Gordon MD has been dispensing practical medical advice with a liberal dose of dry humor through his 'Medical Motorcycling' column in Motorcycle Consumer News. This collection of his articles has been organised into book form and enhanced with clever illustrations by Craig Harrison to bring his valuable insights to a wider audience. As a doctor who also rides motorcycles, Flash Gordon combines knowledge gained from many years of medical practice with the straightforward no-nonsense style of a veteran motorcyclist. He has the knack of explaining medical conditions and injuries in plain language that makes sense. Though the advice is directed to motorcyclists, all the medical information he provides is applicable to the general public. Being acquainted with typical behaviours of motorcyclists, he explains how some of these habits can lead to problems in the future. The changes needed to avoid trouble down the road are sometimes very simple. He explains what signs to look for, when a 3am visit to the emergency room is entirely justified and when a wait-and-see approach is indicated. Written in an entertaining and comfortable style, this book provides much valuable insight into how to deal with or prevent a wide range of health problems.
