This version of Younger Next Year focuses on ridding back pain, which happens to be my specialty field as an herbalist. Much of the information suggested to readers is what I prescribe to my clients, and I am quite eager to have a solid printed resource in which to recommend along with my consult. There is no doubt that if one follows the advice given in this book, natural pain relief will be found.

Back pain is the most common condition which affects most of the population. It is the main problem in reduction in work force... This book provides how to realign our core and reduce the back pain......

Great book, that is well written and very informative. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Netgalley.

I have bad back issues and was very interested in what the authors had to say. Very informative read even though a lot of it does not necessarily apply to my current issues. However, I now know how to address certain issues and hopefully prevent more from happening.

Back pain can be crippling. The Younger Next Year Back Book seeks to help people with back pain, to give them back their best life by offering tools based in science. The authors promise permanent reduction or even relief from back pain if you follow their advice, of course. 

The authors explain what makes up our backs, what can cause our back pain and, what we've all been waiting for, explain how to conquer the pain and relieve it. At the root of their program is behavioural change, we've brought the back pain on us through bad behaviour so changing to a more back-friendly behaviour should help  relieve the pain. But behavioural change isn't everything. You will need to do some exercises to strengthen your muscles that help you keep back pain at bay. All necessary exercises - seven, daily - are explained in the book.

As someone with a bad back, I was interested in this book. There is a ton of information in this book, but very little actually applied to my situation.

Back pain is something that people experience regardless of age. This book explored what not to do in order to make your back young again.

Very informative book of exercises and tips for helping your back. I really liked the tip about what to do it you wake up and it's hard to move due to pain.  There's tips on what not  to do as well. A great book to help so many people who have back pain. There are several stories of different people with back pain and what helped them. It's definitely time for a Younger Next Year Back Book. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.

This book contains really good information for the lay person on managing back pain. The information and recommended exercises are sound, and despite having read tons of books on this topic, I did learn new things here. I did find the meandering conversational style of Chris a little annoying though, wish it was more crisp. But this didn't detract the educational quality of the book.

Interesting book overall, but expected more of a tip book, and/or exercises to help with back pain. More of a discussion and details of experiences instead. Not as helpful as expected, but worth reading. Would recommend.

From a person who was involved in two car accidents in one year this book is amazing,  I really can't wait to get a hard copy of this book.  It is extremely helpful and gives me hope that I will not have to live in pain for the rest of my life.  Even at my last chiropractic appointment my doctor asked what I was doing and she said to come back in 6 weeks not one month.  She actually said you may not need me forever.  I can't say thank you enough for allowing me to review this book.  I am going to refer back to this for the rest of my life.  I am ready to live my best life from here on out.

Written in a readable narrative style with anecdotes and practical suggestions for preventing and easing back pain. Our library patrons will find this a useful resource.

To be honest, I didn't read this book in full.  I was looking for tips and exercises and what this offered on that front was weak.  The chapters of the book alternated between the two authors and the tone was off-putting to me.  One of the first pieces of advice is to "stop doing stupid things" which explicitely includes yoga, and then the exercises and tennis ball massage, etc. were straight out of a yoga class.  Also, the exercises seem to focus on building core and lower back, primarily.  Not what I was looking for, but if you have low back pain, do not currently have an exercise plan, or are interested in anecdotes and anatomy (both skeletal and muscular), this has some good information for you.
