Fatal Contracts review

Fatal Contracts review

Fatal Contracts is an excellent read. It’s not long at 170 pages and always feels sharp and focused. I read each story on a separate day but I can imagine many readers starting and not being able to put the book down until the end. David has done a splendid job in exciting, amusing and terrifying readers. Highly recommended.

Foot Health Myths, Facts & Fables

Foot Health Myths, Facts & Fables

Myths, Facts & Fables on Foot Health in fact was started back in 2017, but I wanted to publish something that would offer a little amusement, plenty of facts and dispel myths and fables. Given the wealth of rubbish and misleading information now available, it seemed about right that I would offer my own readers something they could trust.

Podiatry Book Review

Podiatry Book Review

Such is the gritty discourse that punctuates much of this deeply interesting dissection of the past, present and future of the Allied Health Professions. The book is co-written by Alan Borthwick, for so long the profession’s historian and natural successor to Colin Dagnall. Alan has tremendous oversight of Podiatry’s development in the last half of the 20th and early 21st century much of it gleaned from his ‘at the coal face’ involvement in such huge developments as independent prescribing and degree courses for podiatry. Alan’s co-author, Susan Nancarrow, is also a podiatrist by background, a former senior academic (Professor and Deputy Vice Chancellor at Southern Cross University), as well as a leading health services researcher. She is now, once again, based in Australia having spent 10 years working in Sheffield universities.

The Remarkable Life of the Skin

The Remarkable Life of the Skin

It may seem a hackneyed expression, but I wish that I had had this book whilst at college. For a student, or someone with a passion for skin, this book is a must for the podo-dermatologist, if not, dare I say, all serious podiatrists. We spend our life dealing with skin and so knowledge of the cellular activity is important.

Book review Victorian Surgery

Book review Victorian Surgery

This book review is brought to you by Ian Turbutt, a past senior member of the podiatry profession and former consultant podiatric surgeon.   When Ian wrote and told me I should read this book, I had not realised how engaging it would be. Simply to remind us of the progress that we have made and how few infections arise from surgical intervention, given the complexity of our work today is a salutary reminder of the difference in training between the 19th to 21st centuries.

Consulting Foot Pain as a brand It is important to establish the role that Consulting Foot Pain (ConsultingFootPain) plays as a brand. In 2012 I set the site up to deliver factual information. This made sense as most people were using the internet. After retiring in...

Designing Covers for Books

Designing Covers for Books

Designing covers for books is not so easy as it might sound and the story of Podiatrist on a Mission is no different. They say a cover is the first thing that attracts a reader to a book and with two focus groups, one made up from younger non podiatrists, but professionals, and the other from older podiatry professionals, it comes down to chalk and cheese, and that old apples and pears comparison which is no comparison.
