We’ve featured this author sometimes in our video section; he’s an over-50s specialist physiotherapist with a lot of very functional advice to offer.

In this book, Harlow focusses heavily on three things: mobility, strength, endurance.

You may not want to be a gymnast, powerlifter, or marathon-runner, but these things are important for us all to maintain to at least a fair degree:

  • Mobility can be the difference between tweaking one’s shoulder getting something from a high shelf, or not
  • Strength can be the difference between being able to get back up, or not
  • Endurance can be the difference between coming back from a long day on your feet and thinking “that was a good day; I’m looking forward to tomorrow now”, or not

One of the greatest strengths of this book is its comprehensive troubleshooting aspect; if you have a weak spot, chances are this book has the remedy.

As for the style, it’s quite casual/conversational in tone, but without skimping on science and detail. It’s clear, explanatory, and helpful throughout.

Bottom line: if you’d like to maintain/improve mobility, strength, and endurance, then this book is a very recommendable resource.
