Book and Booklets
This book should be useful for all health professionals, whether podiatrists, medical students, general practitioners or nurses. The book contains clear descriptions of anatomy, physiology and pathology in relation to the foot and is illustrated by clear line drawings.
Today scamming has become a professional art, with people being taken for a ride and providing access to their bank accounts. The work of fraud and now plagiarism is shaping the writer’s world. I am not talking about the usual copying from books that Universities now use software to monitor against fraud, nor am I discussing artificially intelligent (AI) writing per se. In the world of eBooks, we find that writers use pseudonyms and alter the title and cover but then import the original content.
Insights into the treatment of dancers and Olympic athletes, the nascent world of forensic identification, or the challenge of contributing to the intensive care of patients with Covid 19 during the dark days of the pandemic, all add to a fascinating and enlightening series of vignettes which cover the full scope of modern practice.
This book is an ideal introduction to podiatry, guided by the people who practice it. Clinicians to educators and researchers – give the text an authentic and insightful edge. It provides an honest and wide-ranging portrayal of each of the facets of the profession, illustrating its real contribution to healthcare.

Taking a look at the range of books by author and podiatrist David Tollafield
I have created a contents page to provide a guide. You can also use the search tool as well.
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.
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.
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.
