If I had to summarize this book, I would say that it is about improving one's health by improving one's posture. It gets far more specific than that, though, describing 10-13 different "hinges" within the body. Each of these hinges should be properly aligned and accustomed to use in order for the body to be in optimum health.

Like most science/health writers today, Mr. Karrasch seems to come from an evolutionary worldview. He is respectful, though, of those who do not. While I am not sure how much of the emotional/psychological applications and connections I agree with in this text, I found nothing to argue with where the physiological content is concerned. If you are concerned about "psychobabble" or "New Age" content, I would encourage you to ignore those sentences or paragraphs and simply focus on the mechanical aspects of the author's work, as there is much to be gained.

In each section, the "hinge" is described and some applications are made - typically emotional or psychological. In some instances, specific physical ramifications of misalignment (poor blood flow, for instance) are mentioned. Then several exercises are described for developing a proper alignment and flexibility of the hinge. Although there is some "theory" here, all in all it's a very practical book. ( )
