Better then expected.
Interesting concept and stretching illustrations of safe stretches. I rate the booked higher, but you cannot adjust the size of the illustrations, even though the book is published in e-pub.

Great tool in the clinic
As a physical therapist I find Prescriptive stretching a valuable tool in the clinic. Berg does a great job at simply describing the physiology and biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and the implications of stretching on the human body. Not only is he clear in his description of the type of stretch being performed, but his illustrations of the muscle as it is being stretched increases the effectiveness and therefore compliance with that particular stretch. I would have liked to see modifications for the more difficult stretches as these stretches cannot be applied universally. Lastly, Berg discusses PNF and other research articles but it would have been more helpful if he specifically cited which studies he was referring to.
