520    Falling Is Not an Option: A Way to Lifelong Balance is an 
       instructional manual describing a trademarked form of 
       balance-improving exercise called Postural Retraining and 
       derived from T'ai Chi. The book begins with an 
       introductory discussion of balance: its inherent beauty, 
       its elusive source, its necessity, and its common loss 
       late in life in modern sedentary society. The author 
       describes the movement of bone and muscle when engaging 
       the postural muscles (those that involuntarily control 
       balance and stability) and provides numerous examples of 
       weight-bearing sports that require such balance. The focus
       of the book is a section of 20 postures and exercises, 
       well illustrated by sequential photos, designed to improve
       balance using increased downward force (or rooting). While
       these exercises were conceived for those who have lost 
       stability and seek to regain it safely and incrementally, 
       the technique can equally be used by mid-lifers or 
       athletes. The book ends with a glossary of terms. The 
       author writes in a clear, straightforward style that is 
       well-suited to his subject and audience. The exercises, 
       which do not have to be memorized - emphasize simple 
       positions and small movements that are appropriate for 
       those who have mobile impairments, including several 
       exercises that acknowledge the common elderly struggle to 
       sit down and stand up. The author writes with authority 
       about the muscle groups and about physical laws, and the 
       section in which he discusses what balance is not is 
       particularly noteworthy. This book promises to be a useful
       and adaptable guide for anyone in need of an original and 
       effective physical therapy to increase balance and
