It is and a good read. I've also not red all of it yet but it's clearly explained and gives good examples via photos of how to do it. She explains clearly the whys, dos and don'ts and her idea that the dog can take any position it likes during their massage because they now what feels best for them is really refreshing. She talks about injury and conditioning tugging the right way and ways to avoid injury I would recommend it. It's easy to understand and i think useful for me and my dog.
