Perspectives on Dr. Chi’s book, Being Empowered
By Richard Mabey Jr.
I totally enjoyed reading Dr. Phoebe Chi’s book, Being Empowered …for a Healthy Heart. It is such a good read and I learned a lot from this book. It is a very well organized book and chock full of useful information, for one to maintain good health. This book is a must have and a must read for anyone interested in attaining maximum health.
As a chiropractor, I was very impressed with Dr. Chi’s chapter on back exercises. What I like so much about this chapter is that Dr. Chi writes to communicate with the reader, not to impress the reader. There is a kind of unique conversational tone in Dr. Chi’s writing style. Which is rather rare in self improvement books in the field of personal health.
The graphics and illustrations in Dr. Chi’s book are outstanding. Returning to the subject of Dr. Chi’s chapter on back exercises, I was very impressed with Dr. Chi’s emphasis on back extension. The beautiful thing about Dr. Chi’s back exercises is that you do not have to go out and get a back loan for special equipment to do these exercises.
Not only does Dr. Chi provide back exercises to maintain healthy flexion and extrension of the spinal column, Dr. Chi also provides exercises to strengthen one’s spine. Again, the directions for these exercises are written very plainly, in cookbook recipe style.
As an additional treat, Dr. Chi provides the reader with a scattering of poems, that she has penned, throughout the book. These poems are uplifting and inspiring. They add a touch of class to the book.
This book is 343 pages long. So bang for buck, it’s quite a bargain! This is a must read for anyone interested in having a healthy heart!
