I have recently undertaken a Level 3 Swedish Massage course and am currently in the middle of a Level 3 Sports Massage course and this book has been invaluable to me in both. I think I will probably still refer to it for a long time to come. The layout of the book is very easy to follow, read and refer to. It is bright and colourful and set out in easy to ready chunks and diagrams. This is a lovely modern textbook which actually makes certain complicated processes interesting and easy to understand, thus easier to remember. Diagrams are very clear and well set out. I am unsure as to how suitable it would be for people studying at a higheer level and if the detail would be enough, BUT for the level I am currently studying at, it really is an ideal studying companion.
