These books are the most useful I have found for stretches that make all the difference in joint health. This one is smaller and easy to keep around at the office for ideas on how to use small amounts of time to stretch or how to give relief to a particularly troublesome area which is aching. So easy to find the right exercise or set of exercises.

I recently had an ergonomic assessment completed at work and they gave me a handout with computer desk stretches that I really enjoyed doing. I noticed the stretches were copied from a page out of Bob Anderson's Stretching book and decided to look it up. Amazon recommended this book to me as well and I immediately jumped on it. Yes these stretches are basic and you could probably do them without the book, but having a tool like this to help guide you through the stretches is really helpful. It gives you stretching routines and when to do them throughout the day. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and plan to use it daily. If you have a desk job this is an absolute must! :)

Like most people who are into physical fitness I had read Bob Anderson’s classic book on stretching many years ago. Now that I am at an advanced age with some medical issues and cannot do many of the standing stretches (except in the pool) and decided to purchase this excellent 101 page soft cover (Stretching in the office by Bob Anderson, illustrated by Jean Anderson) book.

The introduction covers computer and desk problems, when to stretch, where to stretch, benefits of stretching, how to stretch and go by the feel. There are numerous stretching routines in this fully illustrated book. Almost all of them can be done in an office setting whether standing or seated. Some of these routines include: good morning (startup) stretches, neck and shoulder movements, lower back stretches, stressed out stretches, spontaneous stretches, on the phone stretches, sitting and standing stretches. There is also a section on stretches and movements for repetitive strain injuries. The hand, arm, shoulder and neck stretches are excellent. There is also a section explaining in detail how to do each of the stretches. The end of the book has a section on using the stretch ware material.

This is a book for anyone who works at a desk or has physical limitations but desires to achieve more flexibility and just feel better. The illustrations are beautifully drawn and easy to follow. This book along with Bob Anderson’s original book on stretching is in my opinion the best books around on the importance of stretching.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Tactical Principles of the most effective combative systems).

This product was ordered for use in our office. Many employees are finding it very helpful and are using the stretching exercises right at their desks. I highly recommend it!

This is nice book to have around! This really help when you need to show a client what they can do to help themselves. I use this whenever I need to show someone what they can do to help themselves it is also nice to have visuals to help them out. I think that you need permission from the Author to print things. It have nice images as well as showing where the stretch is going to work and what muscles it helps with.

STRETCHING IN THE OFFICE is wonderful to do to learn more and more how to stay RELAXED AND RELEASED IN YOU SITTING IN A CHAIR AT HOME OR IN THE OFFICE YOU WORK IN. I do these work outs all day and all night long.

This is a great addition to the Stretching book I already own by these same people. As a massage therapist I like giving stretches to clients that they will actually do! In having this book specifically for people who work in an office environment, I can now give them stretches they can do while at work.

Great book! Well organized with pics and instructions on how to perform each exercise. In addition, there's a 2 page "index of exercises" with pictures, that you can tear out or copy and use it in the office (or whereever) without taking the whole book with you.
