Our Book... Now Ebook Only

Now in ebook only... "It's Not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, RSI Theory and Therapy for Computer Professionals" by Jack Bellis & Suparna Damany

Our discontinued print version, still available used on Amazon:

Some notes about our conversion, after 20-some years to ebook:
1) Amazon makes it a bit messy to find and distinguish the two versions. They don't allow authors to link the two (as "Show All Versions") unless all of the descriptive info (metadata) is identical. We updated a lot of metadata for the ebook, so Amazon provides no easy connection between the two.
2) Amazon also seems to have manually edited the page for our original print version, as if by someone who is neither a native English speaker, nor very literary. They altered the punctuation of the title among other things... for no reason I can understand.
3) We chose to go the easy route, playing along with Amazon's Kindle format since they do in fact provide authors with a nearly point-and-click ebook production interface. It is a vital step in the right direction, but does contribute to their market ownership. One choses one's poison.

Our Theory in a Nutshell... or a 5-Page Nutshell

The following figure pretty much distills our 234-page book down as far as it can go. If it makes sense, the read more, our 5-page theory... it might explain why no one else seems to solve your RSI!


  1. Jack! Thanks for the amazing book. Is there a way I could find out if there is someone who Suparna might recommend in northern California? I am in need of serious help

    1. Amar, sorry for the late reply. We're just getting into the Blogger way of working. Sorry, can't recommend anyone but Suparna did reply to another inquiry about what to look for in a therapist. You could also join and inquire there. -Jack

  2. Good Job Jack and Suparna. I live in Central Florida, which makes it rather difficult for me to consult you in person. Is there any PT around here that you could refer. if not, could you let me know what to look for when choosing a PT?

    1. Rana, Sorry for the late reply. Look for a PT who'll do a thorough evaluation and target the causes of the problem, not just the symptoms. You may need some manual therapy, so you should look for a therapist who is knowledgeable in that. After your symptoms have been controlled, you'll need a comprehensive exercise program, and possibly some endurance training to get back to /continue with the activity that caused the injury. You need someone whose knowledge you trust to be able to guide you through the ups and downs of recovery. Hope this helps!
      Regards, Suparna
