As someone who suffers from neurological balance issues due to MS, I found this book very interesting and informative. The exercises and illustrations are easy to follow and can be done in the comfort of your home. I was familiar with some of these exercises, but plan on incorporating others to help with my balance. I also plan on telling my doctor about this book so others may benefit as well.

Balance only turns on when a person is standing. In the modern world of smart phones and Uber, people mostly sit. Without regular practice, balance is lost. Better Balance for Life details easy exercises to be done while also doing daily tasks that will prevent this decline in balance. With literally no time spent, the exercises in this book will prevent falls both now and in later life. Stand on one foot while brushing your teeth and curve like a rainbow while waiting for an elevator are just two of the imaginative exercises here. The exercises begin simply and get progressively more difficult. Four exercises are added each week. Most of the exercises sound deceptively easy but are somewhat challenging like patting your head and rubbing your stomach. However, all are fun. Better Balance for Life is an enjoyably way to prevent breaking a hip when older. It would make a great gift for a grandfather or an elderly aunt. 4 stars! Thanks to the publisher, The Experiment, and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
