From the Back Cover
As the title suggests, Fascia: What it is and why it matters presents a clear and easy to understand overview of what the fascia is, the role it plays in the body, and how it interacts with the other systems in the body. As the importance of fascia in overall health is becoming increasingly recognized it became obvious that there was a need for a book that clearly and concisely presents the facts. This is that book.
Written with a strong storyline that carries the reader along, and logically connects each chapter to the next (rather like the fascia itself!), it is both informative and satisfying to read. Fascia: What it is and why it matters serves as an essential primer for all professionals be they physicians, osteopaths, physical therapist, massage therapists, movement professionals, and orthopedists, giving them a solid grasp of what fascia is and what it does in the body. It explains fascia as a tissue, a system, and it's clinical significance.

I am a Pilates Instructor and am always looking for ways to talk to my clients about fascia and it’s role in training and for our overall health. David’s book has given me plenty of new insights to share with my students.
