From the Author
When the body is injured, it's eager to heal itself. With a condition like plantar fasciitis, the body's healing process basically needs as many odds as possible stacked in its favor, and it will take care of the rest. Without a scalpel, hypodermic needle, or bottle of pills. This book helps a plantar fasciitis sufferer do just that. - Patrick Hafner

I also recommend more the book, "The 5 Mintue Plantar Fasciitis Cure", which is more to the salient point of the singular componet of relief.
Please note WHATEVER you do or try you MUST BE VIGILANT in your approach, this injury requies long term rehab, 6 months to life would be about right.
You can do many, or you can do only a few, but you have to do something to get rid of it.
I also read "The 5 minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution", which in my opinion is the key to successfully get over the heel pain. I have tried many things but the one that really feels to be helping is the 5-min Solution.
In my pursue of getting rid of the pain, I still continued to play basketball, and training my calves to be in better shape for a championship I'm in.
Have to clearly state that it helped a lot. So I believe now the writer is absolutely right in his recommendations.
After I train my calves with weight training (in a gym), I can barely feel any pain on the same day and days after. In the same way after playing a basketball game, the pain is gone. So the strength training is a MUST for anybody who suffers from plantar fasciitis.
By the time you take out the table of contents, overall intro, and the ending pages of very general testimonials, you get maybe 70 pages of info that you could easily get by Googling plantar fasciitis. The less than 10 photos and two illustrations are tiny on the Kindle and are of such poor quality, that when you enlarge to the Kindle screen are too blurry to be of any real use. I have both Fire and a regular Kindle and it was the same for both. These graphics were important as they were supposed to illustrate described exercises. There were other things the author described as helpful that would have benefited from illustrations.
Overall, I spent 1/2 an hour going through it and it ended. It's not much more than a self-published pamphlet. I got a refund.
I wished the book contained more information about products the author recommends for (at least some of) the 30 points of relief. I can appreciate that listing products dates a publication but at least it gives you a starting point of self-help remedies when you're 'new' the heel and PF problems.
I deducted one star because I think it's over-priced. The book is a quick read and good reference though.
