Kurzbeschreibung

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 minimize 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. (Yes, he uses lower case for his name.)
For years flash gordon, m.d., 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 organized 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 behaviors 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 3 a.m. visit to the emergency room is entirely justified and when a wait-and-see approach is indicated.
Written in an entertaining and comfortable style, Blood, Sweat & 2nd Gear provides much valuable insight into how to deal with or prevent a wide range of health problems.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lots of good stuff you don't read elsewhere 24. April 2009
Von Michael M. Dougherty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have always liked his columns in Motorcycle Consumer News, and so some of what was in there was familiar. It's nice to have it all together, by topic. He's a bit alarmist (by my nonexpert perspective) on things like antibiotics, but most of what he tells is quite relevant to motorcyclists, like what to do immediately if you get THIS kind of wound or whatever. But there's other good stuff not necessarily specific to motorcycling, and a lot of neat anecdotes and advice for dealing with hospital staff, and observations about the kinds of stuff he sees in his office.

It's possible that after reading the book you will want to tell your doctor to check for some other diagnosis than what you're given initially. That kind of information is always valuable. Your doc has finite time with you, and how many of us have left his/her office thinking "I should have mentioned this too...."

flash is an enjoyable author and if you have interest in the topic, it's a recommended book.

And how often to you get to read an author whose name really is written all lower-case?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dr. Gordon is a Great MD with a Great Sense of Humor 4. September 2009
Von K. Salinger, Holistic Nurse Practitioner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I originally bought this book because I was preparing to intern with Dr. Gordon for a three semester period and I thought it might give me some insight into the man himself (who I'd be spending time with over the next year and a half.

Dr. Gordon has a uniquely odd, almost British type but not quite, sense of humor. I think his sense of humor and strong medical knowledge is definitely reflected in his writing, and his writing style keeps you interested. I've now spent many hours with him and am constantly amused by his antics.

Dr. Gordon is an avid biker (motorcycle), and as such is very familiar with the unique set of 'troubles' than can accompany one who rides a bike on a regular basis. However, even as a non-biker, I found the subject matter of the book quite interesting, humorous and informative.

If you are a biker, you really need this book. Think of it as part of your essential first aid kit and keep it in your paneer. If your not a biker but are thinking about it (or wish you were) read this book for an interesting look at the other side of biking that you may not hear about from your biker buddies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A lot of helpful information, even if you are not a biker. 15. September 2009
Von Mara Gil - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Dr. Gordon is a biker, but he is a doctor first. And he is an excellent, caring one.
You will find a lot of information about your health and how your body works. His good humor and sound advice will make you feel that Dr. Gordon knows you (and he is talking to you). It is an uncomplicated enjoyable book and I highly recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Important not just for motor riders 5. April 2010
Von Charles Potthast - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
My first encounter with flash gordon m.d. was after I came off second best in a fight with an emotionally disturbed suspect. flash impressed me then with his clinical skills, his ability to clearly and concisely explain my various injuries and the hows and whys of my treatment. Since then, he's been my go-to, primary care physician and continues to impress me with his talent for patient education and dry humor. flash offers a similar valuable service to the readers of "Blood, Sweat & 2nd Gear."
This collection of 47 essays is an enjoyable and insightful way for readers to get a handle on a gamut of medical topics important not just to motor riders but to anyone who recreates or spends time outdoors - or indoors for that matter. Do yourself, and anyone you travel with a favor and get yourself a copy. It's great material from a physician who truly cares.
5.0 von 5 Sternen What Don't You Know about Motorcycle Riding 31. August 2013
Von J. Andray Hubble - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I loved this book for all the things I didn't know or even thought about while riding my motorcycle. Medicines and medical helps are great for myself and some of my friends. If you ride long and hard there is good advice here. Suggested for all long distance and medium distance riders. (Long distance = 1000 mile days,medium distance =250-500 mile days.) Ride safe,
