About this Author

Janet Brindley came across therapeutic breathing exercises in 1998. They dramatically improved her asthma, and that of her fourteen-year-old son. She then left her job as a hospital biochemist and taught yoga and Buteyko breathing techniques. She has since worked with doctors, physiotherapists and nurses to develop a professional training course. This training course was used as part of an MSc Respiratory Physiotherapy module at Coventry University. She lives near London, UK.

This is a really useful book for people with COPD. It is full of helpful tips and instruction, written in a way that everyone can understand. I particularly like the quizzes and memory tests that are included throughout the text.

An excellent and easy-to-read book. It should be a must read for everyone with COPD.

The three key breathing elements which transformed my health were changing to nose-breathing, learning how to keep breaths gentle and controlled, and breathing into my lower chest. All of these are covered in the book. Now, aged 63, I appreciate that having the benefit of these breathing exercises has enabled me to live well with COPD, to continue working, to engage in physical activities such as yoga, and to enjoy a varied social life.

This short book is aimed directly at people who have mild-to-moderate Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). It takes the reader through a 28-day plan, divided into two halves (days 1-14 and 15-28), which is designed to address the common problems of dysfunctional breathing patterns. There are ten chapters, which take the reader through the background to dysfunctional breathing patterns and explains why people may feel increasingly breathless during activities... this is a helpful, wellwritten
book that people with mild COPD may find beneficial. Occupational therapists would find it a useful
addition to their bookshelf.
