Our customer reviews
"Jim Johnson always produces excellent, easily read and to-the-point texts. He is able to reduce reams of proven medical research to the essential facts and then put them across to the public in a way that promotes confidence. The content of the book makes sense as a treatment programme (perhaps that is too big a word for a minimum number of exercises) for lower back pain. I look forward to trying it."show moreby a Book Depository customer
