This book was not what I expected. I expected an in-depth look at Joseph Pilates' method and exercises. Instead, this seems to be personal hyperbole by the author. While he makes some excellent points he also contradicts other statements that he had previously made. I expected a book about Joseph Pilates and his work and not the author's own opinions.

This book does not describe any of the classical or modern pilates exercises. It is really a presentation of one man's opinion of classical pilates and not a particularly enlightening one at that. If you want to know the difference go to a Body Control or Modern Pilates class then go to a Classical Pilates class (or buy Classical Pilates Method by Lynne Robinson et al) and decide for yourself which you enjoy and benefit from. If you are looking for a reference for the Classical Exercises Joseph Pilate's book Return to Life through Contrology is the original and truest source (note some of the images are out of sequence which can be confusing) and Classical Pilates Method is an easier to read and more comprehensive source. If you are looking at pilates because you have back problems Body Control and other modern methods are safer - don't try Classical without supervision if you have back damage.

The original true "Classical Pilates" exercises - clearly demonstrated and defined. A 'must' for all those interested in following Joe Pilates method - as he intended.
