WOW, so much good stuff here...

About half way through the book, and WOW, there is so much info in this book. This is a MANUAL not a book you read just once. I am breaking it into sections and focusing on one element at a time. Thanks Carl for putting all your knowledge in writing. 

Do you want to get better?!
If you're a coach or an athlete wanting to improve, get this book! Read it-learn it-apply it! It's worth every penny!!

I thoroughly enjoy the insights presented here

Outstanding!! I thoroughly enjoy the insights presented here. I am passionate about human movement and this has certainly contributed greatly to a deeper understanding of all that it entails. I highly recommend this book to everyone who has an interest in improving their ability to move. 

A must for a mover...

This book is very much like the author: stylish but personal, intellectual but practical. Opens beautifully the logics and dynamics embedded in the movement of a human being...

In my opinion one of the great books of human movement and strength-flexibility

In my opinion one of the great books of human movement and strength-flexibility. Mastering the 4 movements as a basic foundation will minimise sports injuries. Beautifully presented too.

This book shows you how to...

  • Turn on and trust your intuition about movement

  • Use tools that help optimize imperfect movement

  • Tap into the universal movement patterns and progressions underlying all disciplines

  • Use Carl Paoli's movement framework to create roadmaps for your physical success

  • Learn what being strong really means
