Many of us know the difficulties of trying to learn Pilates exercises from books, but this one has very clear photographs, and useful boxes of information to back up the general directions. It is good to feel this comes direct from Alan Herdman who has taught so many Pilates teachers. I found the self-assessment section useful, and the pictures of studio equipment slightly scary, but no doubt very useful if I ever manage to get to a proper Pilates studio.

Alan H is the master in Pilates in the UK...forget Lynne Robinson...sorry but she bores me to tears..Alan has wit, humour and his knowledge of the human body is truly remarkable..this book and his others are a must and if you get a chance to attend a workshop of his, then go, truly worth it!
