About the Author
Dr. Kelly Starrett—coach, physiotherapist, and author of the New York Times bestseller Ready to Run—has revolutionized how coaches, athletes, and everyday humans approach performance as it relates to movement, mechanics, and the actualization of human and athletic potential. He and his wife, Juliet Starrett, co-founded San Francisco CrossFit and MobilityWOD.com, where they share their innovative approach to movement, mechanics, and mobility with millions of athletes and coaches around the world. Kelly travels the world teaching his wildly popular Movement & Mobility Course and also works with elite military forces and every branch of the military; athletes from the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB; and nationally ranked and world-ranked strength and power athletes. He consults with Olympic teams and universities and is a featured speaker at strength and conditioning and medical conferences nationwide. Kelly believes that all human beings should know how to move and be able to perform basic maintenance on themselves. He lives in northern California with his insanely talented and amazing wife and their two young lionesses, Georgia and Caroline. His chief life goal is to spend more time on the beach with his family.
Glen Cordoza is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author and a former professional mixed martial artist and Muay Thai boxer. He is one of the most published authors on the topics of MMA, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, and fitness with 20 books to his credit.

I was diagnosed with kyphosis (similar to scoliosis, think hunched back) in high school. It was not that bad, most people would never notice, but I had some back pain. Doctors just said there was not much I could do.
10 years later I started lifting and came across Kelly's work and started working to improve my body mechanics. I have significantly improved the curvature of my spine and mobility in my spine, hips, and shoulders. I notice big differences when I look in the mirror and have much less back pain.
I am in my 20s, but see my parents loosing their mobility in their 50s. I have shared th book and ideas with them. I am sure this will help me stay functional long past my 50s and 60s.
If you are into fitness, this is a must have.
If you have mobility or other physical issues, the last third of the book is invaluable. I pair the book with his videos for best results. The book helps me discover the the methodology more easily and then I can pinpoint my search of his Youtube channel for better instruction.
I have made more progress in addressing twenty year old physical problems in a few weeks than in all of the other modalities that I have used combined.
I gave the first part of the book a quick read and then moved to the treatment sections and started working hard on the areas of the upper body to start and the results have been terrific. While I still have a bit discomfort that is gradually decreasing as I continue the work on it. After the therapy work and reading Dr. Starrett's directions on how to properly Dip, I was able to perform Dips pain free for the first time in years.
I am now working on adding more techniques and re-reading the first part of the book more closely as it contains a lot of information how to move properly to both maximize efficiency as well as how to move properly to avoid pain and injury.
If you currently are dealing with pain you should get this book and jump into the section you need to work on.
If you are not dealing with pain but you exercise, weight lift, etc.. you should still get this book and start working on keeping yourself injury free.
One warning: This is a big technical book, that is more of a textbook than just your average fitness book. Geared toward coaches and trainers and physical therapists. But if I can find value here, so can others looking to improve mobility.
I drive many miles a day, and this book is helping me mitigate the destructive effects of all that time in the car.
