John Perrier was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1967. Perrier has published four books across a variety of genres and subjects with more coming soon. His first book, published in 1999, was entitled 'Back Pain: How to get Rid of It Forever'. This book emanated from his career as a physiotherapist and his frustration that all other self-help books on the market gave the same advice and exercises regardless of the patient's problem! This book was an instant success in Australia, selling out of its original print run. Perrier has since appeared on Australian television and radio talking about back pain, as well as writing dozens of articles for major magazines and newspapers. So far he has treated about 30 000 cases of back pain! When he is not writing, Perrier likes to play basketball, cheer on his beloved Carlton Blues Australian football club, potter in his herb garden, walk, muck around with his kids, or listen to blues music.
