I thought this would be similar to the author's earlier book, Pain Free, but with specific emphasis for women. It isn't a book for women in pain - the author refers the reader to Pain Free for that! It is more an exercise program for various stages of life and the only thing that is specific to women is the pregnancy exercises section. It does contain useful information, especially about the importance of allowing babies and children to play freely, without shoes and without so-called 'aids', like baby bouncers and all-supporting carriers, so that the musculoskeletal system develops correctly. At the over-50's section I got the impression that the author thought you were past it and there was little hope of regaining full function. The first exercise is 'standing up against a wall'. That's it. I'm over 50 and felt quite insulted by that. Perhaps I'm not typical.
Anyway, I gave it 2 stars because it didn't help me. Pain Free and Pain Free Living did. I recommend those rather than this one.
