This book is a well-written description of the author's technique, which he has had much success with in his practice. I had surgery on some torn tendons and was looking for a book that would help me understand the nature of the injury and how the healing process works. This book was helpful and I feel that I did get some good information on how the body responds to injury. The authors insight into NSAIDs, supplements and various massage techniques was helpful. I especially liked his descriptions of how the body rebuilds on a cellular level and how the inflammation cycle and fluid buildup affect the healing process.
The cons with the book are the lengthy case histories which really don't give helpful information and the overly technical description of what he's doing. I also did not find his obviously 'anti-surgery' attitude at all helpful for my situation. Sorry, but surgery does have its place...
Note that Mr.Weintraub, although a gifted practitioner, he is not a doctor. He is trying to help you avoid a doctor.
So, in summary I feel like after reading the whole thing cover to cover I got about 5 pages worth of extremely good information. If I had it to do over, I would still read the book, but I wouldn't pay more than 5 bucks for it.
