4.0 out of 5 stars Power of Imagination 25 Feb 2002
By Laura De Giorgio - Published on Amazon.com
You can grow as tall as your imagination and belief will allow you. A lot of people can become instantly taller, an inch or so, just by "walking tall" (instead of slumped), by changing posture. Exercises in this book, and for that matter any stretching exercises, jumps, etc.) can work even better for you if you engage the power of your imagination, belief and expectation. Nutrition by itself may not make you taller, however it may support your goal.
The outstanding results in height increase are based on nothing less than your burning desire, belief and expectation. If you hold onto the belief that you can't grow, you won't. If you believe that it is reasonable to settle for 1 - 2 inches, and that's all that you expect - that's what you'll experience. If you desire to grow more and are open to the belief that yes, you can do it now, and you expect it to happen - than you are greatly increasing your chances of success.
The claims that you can achieve outstanding results only by doing physical exercises and consuming food and supplements that release human growth hormone, may sound outrageous - if that's all you do. If you'd realize the effect that your mind has over your body, what previously seemed outrageous and impossible may actually inspire you to engage your imagination to the fullest - and experience results beyond what you dreamed to be possible for you before.
Your body changes all the time (within a year, about 98% of the cells of your body are completely different - including your skeleton - and you actually have a completely new body) according to the blueprint you hold in your subconscious. And this blueprint changes according to thoughts, emotions, images and beliefs you entertain on daily basis. You may find scientific articles on mind-body connection and the influence of your thoughts and emotions, your imagination and your expectations on your body and on the release of hormones in your body...
A lot of changes in your body pass by unnoticed on a day-to-day basis, and it may not be immediatley obvious to you just how much your imagination affects your body. If you'd like an obvious example, imagine for a moment holding a big yellow juicy lemon, holding it in your hand, then slicing it and biting into it - the lemon juice spurting all over - and eating it. If you really got into the experience, you must have noticed the difference in your mouth. Your mouth watered, didn't it? And where is the lemon? Only in your imagination and it's your imagination that activated your salivary glands.
Perhaps, growing taller with the use of hypnosis (engaging your imagination) does not fit into your belief system. Then, if you really want to break the limits of what you believed was possible for you, you need to re-examine your beliefs system. If it helps you to grow as tall as you'd like - keep it. If it doesn't, change it. You will always find abundant "proof" for any belief system you choose to entertain, when you begin to look for it. If you'd like to learn more about changing your beliefs...

5.0 out of 5 stars I did see some results 22 Nov 2005
By John - Published on Amazon.com
What's NOT to like about this book? It is thorough, answered every question I ever had about growing taller, and some questions I hadn't even thought about asking. But, the bottom line is, the techniques discussed in this book work. I have gained an inch in height in just a few months using just a few of the exercises outlined in this book. That might not seem like much, but for me ( I am over 30 ), it is a BIG accomplishment. As for all these negative reviews, my guess is they either didn't even try the techniques correctly, or they are written by this books competitor. (Notice the same broken English in several of these "reviews"). I definitely recommend this book to anyone who would like a REALISTIC guide to gaining an inch or two in height in a fairly short time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Height Increasing Book On The Market 4 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have seen just about every height increasing and "grow taller" book out there, and this is by far the best, and here's why:
..., it's the least expensive height increase book on the market.
* I found the illustrations to be very good, easy to follow and contemporary.
* This Book is well over 100 pages. Other "grow taller" books are just over 50 pages ... I appreciated the honesty of the author: other books make outrageous, obviously fabricated claims about half-foot height increases and food supplements that are useless. This book points out what is realistically possible with no unbelievable, wild claims.
Without a doubt, I can say that this is the best quality height increase book I have seen, and the one that can deliver the best results. The illustrations are clear and contemporary, and as far as the information about supplements goes - I found it to be invaluable and not to be found in any of the other height increase books.
Bottom Line:
This program works. You can do yoga or pilates until you're blue in the face and you will not grow any taller. Give this program an honest chance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Increasing Height Through Exercise" 15 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I have read quite a few books and so-called Journals regarding height increase so I am able to compare the quality of this book, relative to them.
I'll use numbered lists to keep it brief and to the point!
1. Too Expensive - $35 is just way off
2. Illustrations are poor - black and white drawings really are very poor quality, I recently bought a Pilates book for just $15 and it has photographs of real people doing the exercises. This book has black and white drawings which look terrible.
3. Significant portion of book is 'padded out' with tick boxes so you can record what activities you have done, personally I feel this has been added to get the book over 100 pages!
4. Back of book states "An in-depth look at new cutting edge supplements that have been proven to build and repair cartledge" In actual fact this consists of just 2 pages with no mention of whether any individuals have increased their height using such products.
Overall impression.
Very poor quality book containing very common exercises that are found in other disciplines such as yoga, pilates etc. No real exciting information about supplements and no evidence of whether his program works - he just states he himself has grown.
My Recommendation.
In my opinion you would be better off getting yourself a Pilates or Yoga book instead. They usually contain exercises which are superior, contain quality photographic illustrations and are far cheaper!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book, great results, but too cautious... 14 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I gained just shy of 2 inches with this program. It is very good, and has more info on height increase than all of the other books combined. The only problem I have with it is that it moves into the stretching way too slow. I didn't start to see results until I entered the intermediate and advanced training stages. I feel the author is being too cautious. He starts you out with very simple stretches that I am sure is good for flexibility, but won't help you grow. If you are in pretty decent shape and used to exercising I would recommend skipping the beginning stages of the program to save time. The last three stages will bring the real results. Also, I obtained much better results by using the "optional" exercises in the program.
