5.0 out of 5 stars No More Back Pain Jan. 16 2004
I thought I was headed for surgery. I bought the original edition of this book about 20 years ago, and it changed my life. I ski, mortorcycle, lift heavy objects, play golf and do anything I want without any fear. My back may occasionally annoy me a little, (I'm in my 50's) but it never stops me from doing anything. This is the best book for back pain I have ever read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now I know what's going on back there! Feb. 10 2001
I found this book very helpful in that it differentiates between various types of back pain by using four different categories for back pain. It allowed me to understand what kind of pain I have and to put it into a context. It also gave me specific exercises that are good for me. The book is not particularly kind to chiropractors, but I believe it is fair and generally open minded, and optimistic. I especially appreciated his emphasis on attitude.
