Is this book interesting?5
How does compare to other books in the genre?3
Is it easy and enjoyable to read?5
The posters are absolutely amazing. They are very graphic and are an absolute necessity in your studies. This is a book that would be a wonderful asset to anyone beginning massage therapy classes or practice. It is elegantly worded in a clear and informative way.
The downside of this book is that videos that are supposed to include are not. You go into it expecting to have access to all the videos that you need only to realize that you have access to some and have to pay for others.
You will want to have this book on hand to refer to throughout your studies. It is very well written in an elegant language. It makes clear sense of a topic that may not be very easy to understand. The author makes it a point to provide the information in a way that helps the reader to learn and organize the information that they are learning. The posters are a must have to help you to understand the muscles that you are massaging. You will benefit from the access to the videos. They do help you to learn how to properly massage techniques. You just need to keep in mind that not all the videos are accessible. You will have to pay for some of the videos. The author provides the student with a great guide to learn by. It makes it easy to learn on your own. The author really understands what the reader needs to know to make their learning complete. It is an asset that you will go back and refer to over and over again. It is a great addition to every classroom or office because it is laid out in a way that makes it easy to rely on as a reference guide.
