5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product, well made, 22 Oct. 2010
This bracket holds our 40" Sony Bravia perfectly. We were initially worried that it wouldn't take the weight, but it's absolutely rigid. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it - much better value than getting a standard bracket when buying your TV and doesn't stick out much further (when folded flat) than a standard bracket.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best is now even better, 4 Sept. 2009
I had the first revision of this book back in, I guess, the late 80s and it was incredible. I was young, but managed to go from about 18 inches above the splits in to a full front split with either leg over a 2-3 week period.

Fast-forward 20 years and after a layoff from Taekwondo flexibility fell by the wayside. I got this book a few weeks ago and my flexibility has gone back from kicking just about head height to almost vertical when doing axe-kicks. The gains you can make by following Tom Kurz's methods are incredible.

This book is fairly similar on content regarding stretching methods compared to the earlier editions, but this one backs it up with a lot more scientific references and background information (useful when you're trying to convince other people to change).

I'd highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to improve their flexibility.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only static stretching, 4 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Stretching (Paperback)
I bought this book at the same time as Stretching Scientifically: A Guide to Flexibility Training as I've come back to Taekwondo after a long lay-off and now am really missing my previous flexibility. While this book is good in itself, it only covers static stretching - which as modern scientific studies have shown (details in the book linked above) is fairly useless for improving flexibility for dynamic sports.

The information it has on stretching is OK, but it's fairly sparse on detail and only covers one type of stretching really.
