3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but a touch arrogant, 7 Jan. 2012
Easy to read narrative with numerous anecdotes. The perspectives are interesting, if often common sense, and yes, there are a good few 'lessons' in here I'd dearly love my bosses to employ but I found that after reading about two third's of the book, I was starting to want to argue with her that what she was comparing negatively about for-profit businesses was simply, badly managed ones and there are plenty of those in not-for-profit too. It began to feel like arrogance that the author felt she could teach for-profit organisations lessons that many not-for-profit ventures had quite possibly learnt from for-profit ones anyway. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much. The best chapter is the first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for laymen, 29 Aug. 2011
Just by way of warning to those who are looking to 'help themselves' with muscle problems rather than a critique of the book. This book is not written for lay people so unless you have a lot of time to learn more about anatomy and the latin names of all the muscles, don't buy this book. The use of 'concise' in the title is relative and must refer more to its technical content; it is about A4 size ;-).
Good clear pictures however and helpful suggestions for stretches/exercises that may help - though as a lay person trying to help myself, I would have liked more detail on these (!).
