The material covered is broad in scope: from yoga, Tai Chi, visualisation and nutrition to more traditional and technical exercises. But don't get the idea that the book lacks focus; all of these different disciplines are brought together in a logical progression.
I play traditional Irish music, not classical music, so I found it necessary to modify or even skip many of the exercises. The book inspired me to invent several exercises that were more appropriate for the style of music I play. The authors use some terminology from classical music that may be unfamiliar to fiddlers, but every term is explained in detail, and there's a handy glossary at the back of the book.
This book would probably be quite overwhelming to a complete beginner. But even if some of the material is too advanced for you right now, better to have this book early in your career so you can be aware of critical issues and avoid developing bad habits.
