I have not read this book but had it recommended to me. I have read the amazon first few pages and am not sure it appeals to me that much given some of the reviews. I am pretty picky now, given all I have read and researched, and my background as a coach/ therapist.

Has anyone read it? Any thoughts? Did you find it helpful before I spend more money on yet another book?

What did you like or not like about it?

Are there other books out there that have been helpful in dealing with chronic pain?

I am always looking for good personal resources in coping with these back issues. I must have 5 books each on pilates, yoga and other forms of exercise for back issues.

McKenzie physio exercises( go to the site online- they show how to do them and they are super easy) and pilates seems to work the best for me, but everyone is so different. And there seems to be so much about pain that the medical community does not understand.

I actually had two days with NO pain killers, a first since 4 years ago! Yeah!

Thanks in advance,
