My brother is a long time massage therapist and is experienced in CST. He felt the book has a lot of good information, but that there was more than the layman can easily digest.

I agree. While the book is well written and there are excellent illustrations sprinkled throughout it's pages to illustrate the concepts, it is more of a textbook than an "self help" type of book. Bodyworkers will find a lot to sink their teeth into here, but for the average Joe, this book is overload. I give it 5 stars for the massage/ CST therapist or other bodywork technician that is looking to learn about cranial sacral therapy. For the casual reader I give it a 2 or 3 for approachability and understandability. Rounded off, it gets 4 stars.

There is A LOT of useful information in this book if you are the right audience. However, I don't fee that most potential readers fall fully into that audience. It is more textbook for the bodyworker than anything else, so if you are one - enjoy! Otherwise, you might be better off checking out CranioSacral Therapy: What It Is, How It Works. Sections on how to market yourself as a CS therapist seem tagged on, but they are also useful to consider, especially in today's economy. The section on joint therapy was something I found personally interesting, though there wasn't as much in depth discussion about it as there was for the CST.
