05/17 - Dr. Rock Positano - Simon & Schuster
IPFH Scientific Advisory Board member Rock Positano, DPM, MSc, MPH, has co-authored, with his brother, John Positano, a new book about Joe DiMaggio entitled "Dinner with DiMaggio." The beloved Hall of Fame baseball player, affectionately known as the "Yankee Clipper" and "Joltin' Joe," is remembered by one of the few who really knew the man behind the legend, and includes candid and little-known stories about DiMaggio and other icons of his era. Dr. Positano was DiMaggio's closest confidante in New York during the final years of his life, and the baseball star's unsuccessful heel spur surgery inspired him to pursue and develop preventive and non-surgical protocols for treating foot conditions. The book is available at major book stores and on line booksellers.
