3.0 out of 5 stars Very good if you don't already have a book like this., 10 May 2014

I already have a book on anatomy and was hoping this would come at it from a different angle. If you have already got a book on anatomy i wouldn't waste your time, from the ones iv'e already seen they all pretty do much the same thing.

If you haven't got a book on anatomy, this book is great. Brilliant for a beginner who doesn't want a bog standard book on anatomy.This book is definitely for a beginner who wants more depth in their knowledge.

From my angle what i was hoping this book would have is more detailed instructions on the movement. e.g steps 1-2-3. The common mistakes people perform on a a given exercise.(so you can have perfect form when doing an exercise or get the most out of an exercise) Also maybe some sort of rating system of which exercises would be better, why you'd choose this exercise over another that sort of thing.

Decent book like i say if you already haven't got a book on anatomy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, not worth 5 stars, 6 Dec 2013

Really good interesting book,there is a lot of rambling however for me, its not useless information but it's a bit excessive and doesn't really enhance your knowledge on the concepts in the book.

Key question. Will this make you a person who can influence people more effectively ? I'm not so sure, I guess if you took the time to really work some of the ideas into you everyday life then maybe. You will definitely have to WORK at it and think really hard as to how you can use the ideas because its not like a step to step guide, its more like a diary of his findings.

This book will make you more aware of things that influence situations however as in how to actually use them to benefit yourself not so much.

All in all good book. Could be condensed, longer than it needs to be.
