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.

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.

This book was recommended to me by my doctor; I have to admit I was sceptical of a books ability to help me with what was at the time, some really challenging chronic back pain with some lovely features of stabbing pain and debilitating spasms. Dr. Hamilton 's assertions that I could control and improve some of this pain had my interest at a time when I felt frustratingly out of control. The exercises do work as directed and the chapter on the mental traps of chronic back pain were helpful as well. It has taken six months but I am extremely pleased with my progress and the resulting quality of life I have regained. I would recommend this book to anyone with any level or type of back pain.
I ordered this book used and was pleased with the good condition it came in as advertised.

I was referred to this product by my wife who suffers from back problems and read a copy of it lent to her by a friend. I read that same copy and found it very useful and wanted a copy of our own that we could lend out to others with back problems. I found it straight forward and its advice cut through the crap given out by so many other Physicians that prescribe surgery not in hopes it will help you but too line their own pockets. It is to bad that bit is out of print, but the used copy I received was in excellent condition. I would recommend this book to any one who is thinking about back surgery. My wife and I have seen personally the devastating results of back surgery on friends and how it has made their condition worse not better.

My doctor suggested I read this book after I was diagnosed with a Lower Lumbar disc protrusion. Helped me through the initial stages and I refer to it from time to time for pain relief exercises.

Really useful classic. I have given this to many family members over the years and some have avoided surgery thanks to the exercises in this book.
