I think this book can be very helpful, particularly for older individuals, to undo muscle contractions related to prior traumas, work requirements, etc. , especially those who can't afford Feldenkrais. Chronic muscle contractions creating chronic pain. But the illustrations are so dark, it is really hard to see exactly what exercises are being shown. I can't believe they printed the whole book with such dark photos.
Bottom line: inactivity will make you ill, depressed, and misshapen. Stay in motion each day.I

Life changing. Starting in my late 20s, I was plagued by painful upper back spasms, lasting up to a week. Adding his back stretch routine to the end of my workouts has COMPLETELY prevented the spasms for the past 20 years. So simple to do, so elegantly and insightfully researched, I have recommended this book countless times and will continue to do so as a drug- and surgery-free way to increase flexibility, prevent pain, and reduce stress.
