Customer Reviews

  Staying on My Own Two Feet , 01/28/2007
Reviewer: Marguerite Borchers
I am determined to stay on my own two feet as I age. So when I received Gail Davies and Fran Scully's informative and easy to read book, I turned first to the section on staying strong and flexible. The exercises are effective and easy to work into a daily routine. I have added the 'chin tuck' to help keep my posture straight and those that will improve my balance. With this book as a handy guide I will grow old gracefully!
