    I have a question regarding Total Knee Replacement and Rehabilitation: The Knee Owner's Manual by Daniel J. Brugioni, M.D. - I want to get the book and I usually read on my reader, but I am wondering is this a book that you might want to flip back and forth a lot in to reference other parts of the book as you read? I find that isn't as easy in a ebook. And is this a book that a caregiver would reference? I think I would have a better chance of my hubby picking up a paper book than an ebook. But the price is so much better for the ebook. Geez, I can't even make a decision about this now!! :DOH:

    I would say you would be better off with the hard copy book. That way you could use it as a reference tool more easily and point out specific sections that you mark for hubby to read.

      I bought it as an e-book and put it on both mine and my husband's Kindle. It has a handy electronic table of contents that allows for referencing exercises or time frames fairly handily. I am only on day four and have found it to be an invaluable preparation! No real surprises so far, which is just how I like it!

      Seen no responses on my post <<<<<about Here's another excellent book: "Knee Surgery, The Essential Guide to Total Knee Recovery" Daniel Fulham O'Neill.

      Harry

      Eagerly awaiting 10/4/11 LTKR

      Wondering why, not many books out there but there also are some great youtube videos that haven't got any press here. Google " TKR" or any variations there of to get great info.

      Harry, I did look on Amazon for this book and it is not yet available in the Kindle format. I find that I prefer to read books on the Kindle or the Kindle app on the iPad these days. I also felt that the Total Knee had more than enough informatio for me.

      Did you enjoy this book?

      I have Daniel J. Brugioni's book on kindle, and Daniel Fulham O'Neill's in paperback. [​IMG]

      Both are excellent and you tube has some really good videos of exercises for before and after TKR

      I don't know why it never occurred to me to consider looking for exercises on YouTube, but I bet that would be a good resource!

      I ordered this book from Amazon for $15.00 just about 5 months ago. I understand that it is now available for your Kindle for $9.95. These prices seem reasonable to me. The book is truely awesome-a tremendous resouce for anyone having a TKR and also for family members.

      I think if you read back in this thread, Chris, you'll find it's been recommended in almost every other post! :snork:

      My Kindle allows me to add bookmarks and even notes & it's easy to go back and forth. So I got the e edition. My husband too has a Kindle & I plan to lend him the book through my Amazon Kindle account.

      I just received "Total Knee Replacement & Rehab" by J Brugioni and Jeff Falkel. I ordered it on Amazon for $8.98. I ordered used but it is in perfect condition. I can already tell that this book will be close by my side for some time to come!

      This book (Total Knee Replacement & Rehabilitation) is $11.37 on the Nook Color. It is a little more than I usually pay for a book. But I have downloaded the free sample, for what it is worth. They also have another..."What they don't tell you about total knee replacement pre-op". Think I'll download the sample of that one as well. It is more expensive, $24.99. Somehow they don't seem like bedtime stories....
