Towards Perfect Posture is a must for any teacher or student of the Alexander Technique, for anyone having lessons or for anyone who is interested in finding out what the Alexander Technique is. Written in an accessible and entertaining way, the book sets out the principles of the Alexander Technique and how to put them into practice in everyday life. Door explains that people generally don't know how to 'use' themselves in the best way possible, and that 'pulling ourselves out of shape' can blight our health and happiness. He gives a wealth of practical advice as to how to address this situation by means of the Alexander Technique. The detailed and explicit instructions will be invaluable for those who don't have access to an Alexander Teacher or can't afford lessons, as a handbook for people who are having lessons or as an aid for teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best contemporary book on Alexander Technique 15 July 2006
By Zebedee
Most books available on this subject are poor. Though Alexander's books make hard going due to their archaic style they are rarely, if ever, improved upon. Those that try to address this usually fail.
Brian Door's book succeeds. Here is a contemporary book, faithful to Alexander and accessible to the modern reader. This is a most useful and practical volume. If you're going to buy a single book on Alexander Technique, this should be it.
