You could say that Books of Discovery was born out of frustration. As a bodywork student and later as an instructor, I was disheartened by the lack of information available at the time about palpatory anatomy. That began to change in October 1994. It was 3 a.m., and not being able to sleep, I pulled out a pad of paper and scribbled something about a book that "connected together the dots of the body." Before falling back to sleep I wrote, "The Body's Road Map."

Over the next three years the book began to take shape. A lucky break came when one of my students, Robin Dorn, turned in an exam that was illustrated with beautiful drawings. I designed the book to meet the needs of all bodywork modalities, whether it is physical therapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, sports medicine, chiropractic, yoga, or Pilates. Trail Guide grew quickly to become a required or highly recommended text in many bodywork schools throughout the world.

Over the past six years I have often remarked that we offer more than "how to find muscles, bones, and more." Our books and other products help practitioners locate structures so they can apply their skills accurately. It will always make us feel proud knowing that a mother in Portland, Maine or an athlete in Sarasota, Florida or even a bricklayer in Liverpool, England is receiving quality bodywork from a practitioner who has benefited from our products.

Yours In Good Health, Andrew Biel
