I don't know how to rate this because I just received this and already want to return it. It's not that the book doesn't include good or effective exercises. It just didn't meet my expectations of what  a stability ball book should  include. Primarily, I was disappointed that for nearly half the exercises, you just hold the balls in your hands or legs and are not using the ball for balance purposes.  I'm not a fitness expert but it seems like these exercises could have easily been done without the ball and with the same effects/impact. Albeit, the ball adds a little bit of resistance because of the weight. I was looking for exercises that made better use of the ball. About half the exercises in the book do this (i.e. the exercises are performed with weight pressed into the ball)  while the other half don't (i.e. the exerciser only holds the ball). I was just expecting more "on the ball exercises".
