Back in April I mentioned that I was working on the next edition of Target Tendonitis. At the end of that post I said that the new edition would be ready in “another day or two”.
When I wrote that I thought that I had things pretty well covered in the first edition. And you know, I did… But then I went to read up on some of the newer research that’s been going on, and one thing led to another, and April expired, and May (along with a few more months) came and went, and the more I got into it, the more there was to get into. But now – FINALLY – I feel like I’ve added enough not only to have caught up with the current state of the art (mostly in the nutrition section; the exercise recommendations haven’t changed much), but also to justify calling this a Second Edition. (I make small changes on a regular basis, but this was a major overhaul.)
So what’s new? Well, probably the most helpful part is the new FAQ that I’ve included at the end of the book. Readers have been asking questions along the way, and every time I get a question it makes me realize that something in the book needs to be explained a little more clearly, or that another piece of information needs to be added. And many of them have suggested additional content as well. For example, there’s a great new exercise from a guy named Ed Horne who’s a bass guitarist. Ed gave me permission to use his name in the book, and I’m really glad he did, because he’s been through the wringer. If you play the guitar and think your tendon pain is bad, believe me, there’s at least one guy out there who’s had it worse. But his misfortune can benefit you, because he has tried “everything”. And now you can have the benefit of his experience.
There are also more pictures, more particular recommendations that go to specific sports, more information in the nutrition section… Long story short, it’s just a better and more complete book. So if you order now, you’ll basically be getting a bunch of extra information for free. Better hurry, though… If Target Tendonitis was a great value before, now it’s a steal! I don’t know how long it’s going to be before I raise the price.
To see if Target Tendonitis is right for you, why not take my quick (and free!) tendon test? It’ll take less than a minute, and it will quickly and accurately tell you what sort of tendon pain you have.
