Simply put, the book did not meet my expectations and I returned it to the private book seller I purchased it from (through Amazon), for a full refund. No problems there. I was hoping to find personally useful information on fascia tissue, a type of connective tissue found throughout the body. I did not find it in this book.
There are two aspects to the book. The first aspect consists of several case studies which seem to go into significant detail. Not being a bodyworker myself, it is beyond the scope of my ability to analyze how helpful these case studies would be to a professional body worker. It seems to me, however, that since the case studies deal with very specific body problems, they might only be helpful to a professional bodyworker who is looking for information on one of those specific problems.
The second aspect of the book consists of an overwhelming myriad of tidbits of information (none of which go into any great detail) about fascia tissue. The problem here is that the book bites off more than it can chew and there seems to be no cohesive intent or purpose to the book. It uses a shotgun approach to the subject of fascia tissue, covering a wide range of material, not all of which relates to fascia tissue in any apparently meaningful way. For example there is a section on "earthing." Earthing basically is nothing more than walking barefoot on the ground. Though I found earthing to be interesting in and of itself, the authors did not relate it very well to the subject of the book - fascia tissue.
Judging by the large number of references in the book, most of the authors' energy seems to have been utilized in the collection of the material, only to leave the reader hanging, in the sense of wondering how it all relates to an understanding of fascia tissue. Simply throwing information at the reader, does not, a good book make.
The book touts itself as a textbook on fascia tissue, but in my opinion, the body of material, aside from the case studies, is too superficial to be considered serious textbook material (compared to college level human anatomy textbooks I've used). The book is expensive for what it offers. I have several books on fascia tissue and my favorite thus far is The Endless Web: Fascial Anatomy and Physical Reality by R. Louis Schultz, for a fraction of the cost.
