I'm not always the smartest guy in the room, but I usually hold my own, in most situations. And out of necessity, I've made myself knowledgeable about health matters and anatomy. And this book is packed with useful info from somebody who's smart and passionate about imparting how the body does... and should... work. It's great, but there's too much insider stuff.
If you are in the bodywork biz, or are a professional or elite-amateur athlete, then you probably understand most, or all of the "terms-of-art", and you understand what is being suggested for this-or-that improvement or amelioration. If you are not blessed with being exposed to all the names they use for actions and techniques, then you'll find fairly technical explanations for what ails you, followed by explanations for what-you-need-to-do that make you shake your head and say: "Huh? What'd he just say?" I'm not talking about anatomical references. I'm talking about his own terminology around what he wants you to DO with your anatomy... his short-hand, and the lingo that he and his elite-athlete friends use, because that's their life.
I mean, for example, I know what "Screw your feet into the floor" means, when you are talking about lowering your center and grabbing some leverage in a martial arts context, but I don't know what that means when it's ONE foot, and it's part of an obscure exercise or pose or sequence that is meant to heal a certain type of fascia damage in a certain part of the lower leg.Read more ›
If you're good with being DIY with your health, buy this book and apply it - you'll save money on therapists.
Way more information than I feel I'll ever need, but that's a good thing and I have confidence that if I need something I'll find it in here.
So far read the sections on posture, weightlifting and foam rolling, learned a ton.
