The following is a list of books I have read that I think are great for various reasons.  When possible, I have created links to purchase through Amazon and links to the Hennepin County Library if you prefer to use our wonderful library system instead of purchasing.  Happy reading!


By James Nestor

In this fantastic book, James Nestor, lays out a compelling case about how important our breath is to our health and why we should care about how we are breathing.  This might be the most frequent book I recommend to patients.

By Dr. Belisa Vranich and Brian Sabin

If James Nestor lays out a compelling case about why we should care about our breathing, Dr. Belisa Vranich and Brian Sabin instruct the reader in the how-to of breathing.  Great for all humans, but this book has special emphasis for athletes of all sports.
