Default Biomechanics of the Nervous System: Breig Revisited



Biomechanics of the Nervous System: Breig Revisited



Quote:
Dr Alf Breig is the Leonardo da Vinci of mechanical function of the nervous system. As part of his work he founded the concept of adverse mechanical tension, something which has had an enormous and profound influence on the physical medicine professions. This new book by NDS is about the work of this remarkable man and is a celebration of his life and his passion.

Who has already read this book?
I am interested in this book and I am waiting because of the Spanish translation. If the Spanish translation won't appear I will buy it in English, but now I have some books to read.
I want to know your opinion of this new edition of Alf Breig's work.

But I have seen in Shacklock's website that the book is on sale since the first week of January, so maybe somebody have read it or is reading the book now.
Thank you anyway.

Mine arrived too, about a week ago. The boat it came here on must have hit a few big waves along the way.

It looks good - very very good.
