The author who wrote this book is a movement therapist and educator. This Book covers all range of movements beginning with Strength Training, then she addresses strengthening the lower and upper body.
Part 3 she shows special concerns.
Part 4 are the programs.

It is not a long Book, but it is a Book that you would want to consider to get the body in shape.
