About the Author
Coach Kelly Starrett received his Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2007 from Samuel Merritt College in Oakland, California. He currently runs his own physical therapy practice at San Francisco CrossFit—one of the first 50 CrossFit affiliates—and focuses on performance-based Orthopedic Sports Medicine with an emphasis on returning athletes to elite level sport and performance. His clients see exceptional results from his progressive blend of manual physical therapy and strength training. Since 2009, Kelly has been traveling the country teaching his "Movement, Mobility & Maintenance Course" in an effort to spread his message that good mobility and proper movement are the keys to good performance and that all humans should be able to perform this basic maintenance on themselves.
Kelly's clients have included Olympic gold-medalists, Tour de France cyclists, world-class extreme skiers and X-Games medalists, dancers with Smuin, San Francisco, and Sacramento Ballet Companies, military personnel, and competitive age-division athletes.

My issues have been both joint- 'tennis' elbow, and muscle- calf sprain, mostly. Both of these issues were due to my
lack of technical expertise and I realized that I needed more foundational 'stuff' to feel more confident in what I'm doing and to avoid injury as much as humanly possible.
This book is worth a 'monkey made of gold' (rick scruggs). It is above and beyond typical how-to manuals, in that it has the phenomenal expertise and 'splainin' style of Dr. Starrett, tailored to what I am doing now, and what we all do all of the time- illustrated in pictures and written in such an easygoing language.
Timeless and a real bargain, considering the expertise contained in its pages.
Bravo, Dr Starrett- you, your wife and everyone involved in creating this book have my eternal gratitude.
I was skeptical of so many 5 star reviews. Feel free to check out my other reviews and know that I do not give out 5 stars lightly. But this book is worth every penny. And more.
Anyone who values their training should have a copy.
