    I found most of the material slightly outdated and/or not geared towards the "prehab" I would have liked to see from a doctor with his degree of knowledge and interest in the totality of the structural units working together. I definitely was hoping for more information dealing with design and function, moving away from machines and stretching towards postural analysis, something he only intimated had influence.

    This course contains simply FANTASTIC information--solid both from the scientific and practical standpoint, the information is immediately useful in training. It was worth EVERY PENNY of the investment, and the coursebook will stand ready for use on my shelf at all times! As an extra plus, the coursebook was very well written, and was a joy to read. I hope to read more of the Framework Series!

    I am very interested in going into orthopedic surgery as a sports medicine physician and specializing in knee injuries. This book, part of the bundle, is a great way to be introduced to the field!

    I like how the author writes and explains things. Very down to earth and gave plenty of examples, insight, and recommendations. It means a lot that he has worked in the field for decades now and describes the changes and things that have stayed the same. I will use a lot of what I learned in my practice. Thank you Dr. Nicholas DiNubile and ACE (keep up the great work)!
