Publisher Comments:

With a fresh approach to a common problem, this self-help guide to overcoming back pain advocates adopting the natural, healthy posture of athletes, young children, and people from traditional societies the world over. Arguing that most of what our culture has taught us about posture is misguided—even unhealthy—and exploring the current epidemic of back pain, many of the commonly cited reasons for the degeneration of spinal discs and the stress on muscles that leads to back pain are examined and debunked. The historical and anthropological roots of poor posture in Western cultures are studied as is the absence of back pain complaints in the cultures of Africa, Asia, South America, and rural Europe. Eight detailed chapters provide illustrated step-by-step instructions for making simple, powerful changes to seated, standing, and sleeping positions. No special equipment or exercise is required, and effects are often immediate.

Beverly Solomon, February 17, 2009 (view all comments by Beverly Solomon)
As a former model, I have practiced "good posture" but to my surprise, I would have back pain on occasion. "8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back" is one of the most fascinating books I have ever read on the human anatomy. Esther Gokhale takes you on a highly visual journey around the world that shows people of other cultures doing hard labor. Unlike the west, these people are virtually pain-free with beautiful posture. Despite their status in the world, these people walk, stand and sit like royalty.
Gokhale teaches us in 8 steps how to correct our body structure through specifically designed exercises. I suggest geting this book BEFORE you experience back pain. And please give this book to anyone suffering with back pain. "8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back" by Esther Gokhale should be in everyone's library next to the Family Medical Guide.

Bev E., January 9, 2009 (view all comments by Bev E.)
You know it when you see it. Perfect posture. The man waiting at the bus stop, the young woman carrying her toddler, perhaps the person who just sat next to you in the waiting room. Ester Gokhale's book, 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back, teaches the reader through candid photos posture; both the wrong and the correct way to move, to stand and sit.
Back pain can be life altering. Surgery is rarely the answer. This is a book to both study and to enjoy as a logical aproach to a pain free back.
