Movement fills a gap in the knowledge about natural authentic movement. It proposes a paradigm shift is required for the way authentic movement patterns are viewed. Instead of dissecting human movement into individual parts, it examines natural movement from a holistic perspective. With this new stance in mind, the author Gray Cook and his team, explain the lack of underlying principles for fundamental movement that exists in fitness and rehabilitation theory to date. Cook's goal is to point out the lack of a standard operating procedure in existence for movement fundamentals and offer up the Functional Movement System to fill the void.

The undisputable theme of this book is quality over quantity, a phrase that Cook incorporates into his philosophy: "First move well, and then move often". This theme is well supported throughout the book as it is one of the underlying principles to Functional Movement Systems. The purpose of these systems is to ensure there is fundamental movement quality instilled before movement quantity is of concern.

Movement could be beneficial to everyone, but the intended audiences are the health care and fitness industries. Professionals such as medical and chiropractic physicians, physical and athletic therapists, personal trainers, coaches, physical educators, and even people looking to become healthier (and not limited to this list) will gain the most from this read.
