About the Author
Chris Crowley, a former litigator (Davis Polk & Wardwell), is the coauthor, with Henry S. Lodge, of the Younger Next Year books, and the coauthor, with Jen Sacheck, PhD, of Thinner This Year. Though in his eighties, he fully lives the life, skiing black diamonds and routinely doing fifty-mile bike rides. He and his wife live in New York City. Jeremy James, DC, CSCS, is Director of the Aspen Club Back Institute. He became a Doctor of Chiropractic (instead of going into traditional medicine like almost everyone else in his family) because of his own struggles with sports-induced back pain as a young athlete, and developed his behavioral/whole body method while working with serious athletes for over a decade. He lives with his wife and son in Aspen, Colorado.

I am convinced that using a "neutral spine" prevented the sciatica from getting worse. Last time I had sciatica, I was constantly putting my back out again and again. But this time, once I realized the correct posture, my lower back, hips, and thigh were able to rest and start healing instead of being continuously stressed from bad posture and turning.
Reading his book, I came out of denial and realized my eight hour stressful job was literally killing my back. I am overweight, and came to terms that I have to lose weight and tone up my core muscles. There's nothing like pain as a motivator! I have already lost 10 lbs., that's how motivated I am! I am also toning my core which is imperative to healing and preventing another episode. Also, I realized the necessity of walking even for five minutes every half hour is imperative when I return to work.
When in pain, it's hard to grasp new ideas or understand the complexity of the spine. Years ago, when I went to PT, I didn't understand what the therapist was telling me, there were too many new concepts, poorly drawn illustrations, and it was just plain exhaustion getting to and from the appointments. But now, I can follow the concepts and the steps in Jeremy's book which are laid out in a way that makes them easy to understand. There is also a ton of helpful information and the book is written in a way that is encouraging and motivational.
Also, Jeremy's web site: backforever.com has an initial assessment you take to see where you should start. The videos are easy to understand and there is so much good information! Thank you Jeremy, I was ready to learn, and working with you and my doctor, I have a treatment plan I can actually follow and want to follow because I am seeing the results right away. Thank you!
At 64, finding golf injuries frustrating, it was time to renew my convictions. Here comes the Back Book! How timely! Over the years, when your back hurts, you will try anything. Tapes, Pilates, braces, pills, exercises ... on and on. All have worked to a varying degrees. At this stage of life, other than select supplements, I don't like medicines of any kind. Had maybe one flu shot. My immunity is the best of my life, probably because I ended air travel. Never understood cholesterol-reducing drugs. Never taken them. They made no sense. When I asked how they worked, no doc pushed them. Thank goodness. Cholesterol, you know, can be good for the brain.
However, aerobic exercise, diet, and enjoying sport all make sense. There's the reality of arthritis. Strangely, my hip, where it first began, has improved since 50. I don't really know why. Probably less golf. Golf puts serious hurt on a body. Many parts. None are more concerning than the back.
YNY is fantastic. I re-started, with some modified Sprint 8 interval training workouts, and added the Back Book. What a delightful discussion. The authors are masters of brevity. Chris's humor is still there. Because I don't want to spend my life exercising ... the Back Book fits the bill. An easy read. Makes sense.
For all of my life, I have been a sloucher. My mother's voice rings in my ears. Stand up straight. When I do the dishes nightly, I always wondered why my back hurt. Guess what? I slouch. Use my spine. For no other reason, buy this book for the grape fruit. Yes, when you read it, you will get it. This has changed my life. I now know where neutral is. Someday it will become a habit because of these authors. Thank you, guys.
When I slack... my back hurts again. :(
I was told about this book by a very good Osteopath in my area and I have not been disappointed.
