Early Praise for A Guide to Better Movement

It’s been about three weeks since I released my new book A Guide to Better Movement. I'm pleased with the sales, and even more pleased with the feedback. Here are some brief reviews: From Jamie Hale, cognitive scientist and author of In Evidence We Trust:

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.

From Leonard Van Gelder, physical therapist and athletic trainer:

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.

From Matt Danziger, personal trainer and author of the True Movement blog:

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.

From Matt Phillips, running performance coach & sports therapist:

With a good book I use highlighter pen to note the good bits. Last night I ran out of ink.

From Justin Goodhart, personal trainer and author of Well Rounded Athlete:

I'm about 200 pages in, and my mind is blown. I've never read such a great synthesis of information from a brilliant movement perspective.

From Roderick Henderson, physical therapist:

This book is a game changer. It should be required reading for all physical therapists.

From Carole Bucher, Feldenkrais practitioner:

[this] book is WONDERFUL! It exceeds expectations in every way, and it is inexpensive!

From Diane Jacobs, physical therapist and creator of DNM:

I was inspired to move my kitchen table over, mop the floor, let it dry off, then lie down upon it for a good hour, mess around with movement . . . I stood up, and enjoyed the feeling of being 4 inches taller and twenty pounds lighter with super-slidey nerves and vessels.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, very humbling.

If you have already read the book, I would love to hear what you think. I would be especially grateful if you could post a review on either Amazon or Goodreads.

If you haven't read it yet, you can pick one up here.

Many people have asked about e-book and Kindle versions of the book. Those should be done in a just a few days, and I will let you know as soon as they are available.

Thanks again to my readers for the support and encouragement!
