    Overly long, probably because the author is very passionate about the injury. Contains excellent advice and many interesting facts about arms, posture, computers, and all things related to RSI (even emotions about RSI). I wasn't aware of it. Overall, looks true. Mostly because it doesn't promise overnight healing. Overly long, probably because the author is very passionate about the injury.

    I feel like I will look back on this as a good resource. I am certainly doing my best to memorize this advice, and apply it whenever I can. I like that the authors acknowledged the full spectrum of health; that you need to consider every aspect of your life to be healthy, regardless of your problem. I was never taught any of these basic ways to sit and type properly, in fact, keyboarding classes have encouraged the opposite.

As the doctor who wrote this says, there is no temporary fix, you change your technique for life. Here goes...

    Very comprehensive, with photos of the proper posture vs bad posture, tips for dealing with worker's compensation, and how to determine if your doctor is good. The author is clearly passionate about RSI, and is not just stating dry facts.
