3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 23 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Feels and looks (and is) very plastic (and cheap - although it wasn't.)
I need to use it barefooted but it is way too uncomfortable for that .
On the positive side it has lots of adjustment and a big variety of foot placement positions, but somehow I just expected more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 23 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really liked the previous edition of this book and the 2nd edition is an unexpected improvement on that.
I use the book on a daily basis in my Sports Therapy work, its definitely my 'go to' reference manual.
Being hyper critical I would say that I preferred the slightly smaller more compact style of the 1st edition, and some of the print quality in the new book is poor - the content however is 1st class

What a fantastic book and written in a style that makes it so easy to enjoy.
The premise of the book makes perfect sense and I've found that by following the foot and core strengthening work I have gained stability and control for all of my activities, not just running.
Excellent book

Delivered really quickly - impressive.
I've only just received this book so haven't had a chance to properly assess it - however on first readings it seems to hold a lot of useful / practical info. Looking forward to getting stuck into it.

Delivered quickly which was impressive.
A wonderful addition to my ever expanding library of similar books.
I'm a sports Therapist and am always looking for ideas to enhance the work that I do with sports men/women - especially connected with activity based movement. This book fills that gap and I'm already applying some of the ideas from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 15 July 2013

Delivered super fast which was very impressive.
Good product and very well priced.
Only minor downside is that it feels a little less 'soft' than I expected - but it's a disposable paper towel roll so that is hardly significant.
