I just wanted to say “Thank you” for such a wonderful resource. One of my patients made me aware of your book “Inside Out” yesterday. She has a prolapse and despite several conversations between myself and her personal trainer as to the appropriate form of exercise, he continued to prescribe unsafe exercises for. Through desperation, she searched the next for some “cold hard literature” for her personal trainer and came across your book and hence bought it along for me to see yesterday. I read it from cover to cover last night and ordered a copy for the clinic. I will now be recommending your book to all my clients. I absolutely loved it and can see how much easier it will now make it to educate clients in appropriate forms of exercise
