This book is excellently organized! Instructions are clear. Drawings aid understanding. Verbal description is followed by benefits of each exercise as well as precautions. Students AND instructors will appreciate the manner of teaching. Exercises are divided into beginning, intermediate, and advanced categories. Author not only tells WHAT to do, she also tells WHY. Third part of book provides specific programs for common injuries, listed by body part: e.g. lower leg-ankle-foot, knee, thigh-pelvis-hip, trunk & spine, trunk & shoulder, elbow & wrist. In addition, there is a chapter for special populations: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Parkinson's Disease, Fibromyalgia, & Multiple Sclerosis. This is a book one could refer to time after time, for greater understanding and expertise!
