Easy to read, understandable

This review is from: Treat Your Own Achilles Tendinitis (Paperback)
After buying a previous book of the same writer (how to treat your knee) I decided to buy this also, since my achilles tendon suddenty have started to complain. First I have visited of course my orthopedist and did MRI etc. so this could be like information to dig a little deeper into this matter.
2 stars goes to the PRICE / content size+print quality ratio. It is a very easy to read book and it is very easy to understand. But! it is higly priced for this little volume of text (I've read it in 1-2 hours doing pauses to drink something) and this print quality (too large pages with too much space left in the margins).
Nevertheless it gives you some very basic (scientifically proved) information about your achilles tenondopathy and helps you to manage it. Although somebody could gather the same information (perhaps ever more) on the internet, if you are somebody who wants it on paper in the form of a book for your bookshelves and wouldn't mind the price then it's ok.
My opinion is it should be much more cheap mainly because the info which is sharing is basic (the truth is, you wouldn't need much more than this) and can be very easily found on the internet and secondly too small volume of text for this size of a book (+ about 5 pages are the week schedule for your excersizes, waste of pages actually).
