What do players across such different sports such as Buster Posey, Tom Brady, and Tiger Woods have in common? Their injuries have shaped the world of sports and how sports medicine is approached. When you hear stories of Kobe traveling abroad to receive blood platelet injections, or Olympians using low-oxygen training masks, or how an NFL player bounced back from an ACL or MCL tear, these techniques were all developed by surgeons who had to fix the broken athletes who came to them.

Jonathan Gelber has compiled a list of the most impactful injuries inTommy Johns Elbow and Tiger Woodss Back: Injuries and Tragedies That Transformed Careers, Sports, and Society and the ripple effect they have had in how modern sports are played today. Whether it is through surgeries or rule changes, the game has had to evolve with every gruesome injury or, in some cases, even death.

Among the athletes featured in this book are:

Tommy John and how the surgery that came about in his name changed the game of baseball
Yao Ming, Bill Walton, and other NBA stars, and how foot injuries affected their careers
Dale Earnhardt and how his devastating crash led to new rules and safety concerns for NASCAR
And many more!
