I've not fallen, and can stand up!

This book does in 10 minutes precisely what it say it will do, it provides 10 ways to prevent senior citizens from taking a tumble, busting their hips and suffering a slow recovery or dying. It is easy to follow, very straightforward., and there is no reason after listening to this that you will not significant;y decrease the risk of a fall if you follow directions.

Clinger narrates perfectly, he is crisp in his delivery, and very easy to follow. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like mewill decide based on my review.
