"Once I purchased, and started reading the book I had a hard time putting it down . . . rates as one of my favorite all time reads on movement."
-- Jamie Hale, M.S., cognitive scientist and author of In Evidence We Trust, maxcondition.com.
"Simply put, this book is the most important book on movement in the last 20 years, possibly in existence up to this point. It will become a required reading for every movement professional to truly understand movement and pain."
-- Leonard Van Gelder, DPT, ATC, CSCS, dynamicprinciples.wordpress.com
"It's almost infuriating how good this book is . . . It is both refreshing and inspiring to read something of this quality. This is definitely a resource I will be referring back to for quite some time."

Read it and practice the great focused movements in the end!
I would suggest that in addition to the suggested movements that the acquisition of powerful muscles be emphasized.
A lifetime of lifting very heavy weights has made me famous among my doctors and friends for resilience. A super strong body is hard to break. Lastly, if you are relaxed you will sustain little damage during a slip on ice or in a fight or sport.
To be fair, this book is not as consumer friendly as Moseley and Butler's "Explain Pain". However, it's not as complicated read as Butler's "The Sensitive Nervous System">
Highly recommend this book to not only movement professionals, but those that deal with people with pain or are in pain.
I consider this book to be the third great "epoch" in the evolution of my movement training and philosophy. It's that good.
Movement and the human body are extraordinarily complex, but Todd does a tremendous job of providing high quality academic research while still making sure it's accessible to the average person.
The money for this book is well spent. This book delivers HUGE value.
Truly exceptional work. A MUST READ FOR ANYBODY IN THE REHAB INDUSTRY AND FITNESS INDUSTRY.
If you're not reading this, you're simply doing yourself a disservice.
