Only Michael Gelb's "Body Learning" comes close as a basic introductory text on the Technique. Clear, straightforward, and not twisted into pop-psych, pop-health or pop-fitness cliches to satisfy the publisher. If you are having lessons, or considering studying the Technique, you should buy this book.

One of the best introductory books on the Technique! 9 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Chris Stevens has put together a clear, straightforward, non-'New Agey' introduction to the Alexander Technique. The ONLY introductory book of comparable value is Michael Gelb's 'Body Learning.'
Some readers may be frustrated that the book does not follow the usual self-help, do-it-yourself formulas. This is inevitable, as the Alexander Technique has no place in those categories.

Very poorly written. 25 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Chris Stevens might know a lot about the Alexander technique, but you'll have a hard time gleaning anything from this book!
