Will changing position regularly help you reach a ripe old age with full health and vitality? A chiropractor friend with a scientific bent sent me an interview with the author and I bought this book on spec.

In a nutshell she believes, after working on astronaut physical rehab for NASA, that regular movement is the key to longevity and fitness. After doing an experiment with stand up desks for a few months I'm inclined to agree. Either standing or sitting for long periods I've found I get problems with either joints, posture or weight gain.

Since reading this I now implement a move-every-20-minutes regime (I work at my desk four days a week), usually yoga, calisthenics or weights. I'm happier, trimmer and more flexible. She may well be on to something.

My only criticism is that it felt a bit long and could have done with a bit of trimming as it begins to feel repetitive quite quickly. Worth a download though.

This book is such a interesting book that everyone should read. It made me realise I need to move more all throughout the day, going to the gym isn't going to be enough to keep me fit well into my older years. We all sit way to much and this book really brings it home how it effects us and how small changes can bring huge gains to better our life styles.

I have taken some very important messages about the effects of inactivity from Joan's book. I'm not exercising more but have started to build into my life her gravity engaging habits. For a world that spends increasing hours on its backside, this is a much needed wake-up call.

This is a very interesting and instructive book. It is very helpful as it explains the necessity of good exercise, showing how our body muscles need to be used regularly to keep them in good tone. This not only improves our life style phisically but also mentally.

With data from NASA the author points out that he body is intended to move rather than rest. Here's a book to read to one's cat.
