The greatest book I’ve ever received (after the Bible, which you already know about).

DON’T stop reading if you’re over forty, or if you’re a woman. (Oh, I barely caught you, didn’t I? You were about to leave the page.)

The older you are, the more this book is for you. If you don’t care about self-defense or martial arts, this book is for you.

Excellent! These exercises have been incorporated into my daily training regiment. This book has a very good layout and the advancement (though a little slow for my taste)has a gradual progression, which is perfect for anyone interested specifically in the health benefits.
