My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Stretching is important and in 10-Minute Stretching, the author explains why it’s so important the beginning of the book. Proper technique and the importance of making it a regular practice are also discussed. The next section is full of stretches by area from the neck to the feet. The stretches are explained well and more importantly for me, illustrated well. The last part of the book gives sample routines for everyday activities, injury recovery, and aches and pains. Lastly, there’s a chapter on making your own routines.

This book will benefit anyone because there’s enough information to personalize it. I’ve started using it, and I’m already seeing the benefits of stretching every day.
