Júlíus -

I just bought this book and received it a few days ago. Solid information, but for me...most of it was too clinical. There is a section specifically for rehab, but most of the book reads like a medical textbook (I knew this buying it). The rehab section (while chock full of info) is geared more for a practitioner on how to begin back rehab for a patient with chronic pain.

If I were to do it over again I would probably buy his other book. "Ultimate Back Fitness and Performance". This looks to be more sport performance based.

All in all it's got good information.

Thanks for the heads up, Kris. It sounds like a solid read. I'm thinking I should wait until my exams are over until reading it, though... I've got tons more than enough to read for the next month and a half already.
