As a newcomer to the world of biology and massage, I found this book extremely helpful, easy to understand, neatly and well laid out (some books have extremely small and tightly printed text, it makes me feel unorganized and claustrophobic). The book has many easy understandable illustrations, tasks and crosswords to assist in the learning process and, a lot of color- which really steers the book away from being boring. Most importantly, I get excited when it's almost time to turn to a new page... which clearly indicates that I am loving it. Maybe not recommended for the experienced professional, but definitely for students and for lecturers looking for some great coursework! After having purchased this book, I have also ordered 3 more titles by Francesca Gould.
