Best book ever on Alexander Technique, 2 Aug. 2010
I had been taking weekly Alexander Technique lessons for about 4 months. At first I gained a lot from the lessons but later seemed to reach a block where I was not making any progress - this was to the point where i stopped taking lessons. I then bought about 5 books on the subject including the original text by Alexander himself, 'The Use of the Self'.
Missy's book is by far the best text and it has explained to me why i was had reached a block in my exercising the technique. It is full of practical examples that reasonate with my own AT experiences.
I read another review which said that this is not a self help book. I would say that this is a great self help book only after having had a few lessons but will not be of much use any earlier as one would not understand the concepts Missy is explaining.
I usually read books very quickly but this book took me over a week to read as i was making sure I understood as much of it as possible. Highly recommended.
