-Good verbal description of proper back posture for anyone with a normal spine.
-About 260 pages of content, but the helpful parts could have been written in 3 pages or less.
-Though well documented, endless psychological studies described and cited that are scarcely applicable for the person taking the time to read the book.
-Only 4 exercises diagrammed in the whole book, and they're diagnostic more than therapeutic.
-Mention given of various parts of back that can hurt, but only solution for anything is posture.
-Almost no mention given of any special causes of back pain (example:relationship between mattress and back pain gets no more than a very general mention that firm mattresses are better)
-No mention of special conditions or treatment needs, such as being under 4'6", over 6'5", or having a malformed lumbar.
Summary: The emphasis and description of good back posture may help many people with healthy backs who suffer regularly from back pain during the day. It is good to be reminded of the need for good posture. However, little or no mention is made of special back conditions or other causes or practically applicable solutions for back pain. This book won't be of much help to someone who has any sort of special back condition, which would typically be the person who would buy such a book and take the time to read it. If you're an average person with a healthy back but suffer daytime back pain and don't mind reading 260 pages of mainly remote topic studies, this book may help you; any other situations, I wouldn't recommend this book.
