This is an essential item for any student of AT. Though difficult to read at times it deals with the subtle aspects of the technique in its finer nuances. It is a book for a lifetime, you will learn something more each time you read it. It is very small but packs a punch. Highly recommended.

To review a book on his technique by the founder of the Alexander Technique is to look a gift horse in the mouth. When this book has been read and digested, his other books should be read carefully too. Together they give a summary of a lifetime of investigation and its potential for changing the use of the self involved in reading his account.
