To all my dearest boys, guys and men. And all our dearly beloved women of influence: moms, girls and wives, please get this book.

Save yourselves trouble - Craig is incredibly thorough in his description. He explains exactly how to avoid injury, and get results that you might want. Something I wish my husband could have done when he was 16.

Workout injuries are possible - and yes they can be debilitating. I pray my husband finds relief someday - until then I will follow the advice in the book, and
