User Review  - sherriannm - Overstock.com

This is a wonderful book for learning exercises to relieve pain from fibromyalgia. The price was great when compared to most bookstores and websites that I visited. My only criticism is that the pictures are in black and white but they are good enough to see clearly. Read full review
