The exercises in this book seem to be good, and I have no doubt that they bring many people relief from back pain. However, the author is more than a little crazy. He seems to believe, among other things, that drug-resistant epidemics of TB could be cured if we all just had better posture...because good posture will improve your immune system, and then you can fight off TB... This is beyond silly.

In Egoscue’s philosophy, everything from C-sections to cancer to ADD could be eliminated if we all

Not the best written book but this method is changing my life. I'm 8 weeks in and feel better than I have in years!

Great book for all women to read! Really explains how pain and injury in adulthood stems from dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system as far back as infancy. Great book to help understand how to understand your body better. This book addresses posture at all stages of life including:infancy,adolesence, adult, pregnancy, senior years. Being certified through Egoscue, I practice what I preach and have watched the method work time and time again to correct dysfunction in bodies and eliminate pain ...more

This book is awesome! So why not give it 5 stars? The format for actually doing the exercises is not ideal. The exercise pages should be tear out or come in poster form or something. The binding of the book and thus the integrity will be severely damaged over time from flattening it out to perform the exercises.
I think that all women should read this and then start moving! (Thanks to my cousin's wife for sharing this with me during my back pain months; I no longer have pain.)

Wonderful alternative (and addition to) standard pain treatments. The whole concept of "give a man a fish" or "teach a man to fish" certainly applies to this book. You can come up with temporary solutions or surgeries that help or (using this book) get to the root of the problem, fix it, and make your whole body healthier. It's definitely a time commitment to do the exercizes, but it's well worth it!

I feel like I can't rate this yet because I haven't really done it yet to see if it works. I really need to get on the ball and just DO the diet and things he recommends to see if it helps at all!

This should be required reading—it just makes so much sense. And who knew a (for all intents and purposes) medical text could be so incredibly interesting?!
