As a freelance musician who often has several days off between gigs - days where I must devote myself to caring for two very young children - I rarely get the opportunity to practise as much as I'd like. I bought this book a little while ago on a whim and finally read it when away from home without my instrument, where I put the book's exercise to the test. When I got back to playing I immediately felt better in shape than I ordinarily would after a week off. A day or so later I was booked to cover for a colleague on a pretty tiring West End show and, again, I felt stronger in the show than I would have expected.
The exercise taught in the book won't maintain all facets of playing that can diminish with time off, but it certainly will help with stamina.
I can imagine the exercise could work very well alongside moderate practice.
I also like how simple the exercise is and how it can be done almost anywhere.
Well worth a read.

and practicing on my lunch hours is not that easy; for me these exercises are
the difference between struggling and having fun playing!
After doing this exercise for just 2 days, (about 20 reps) my stamina increased
noticibly, and at the end of my next gig I still had power.
I have buzzed mouthpieces for years and even learned to buzz without a mouthpiece,
but more than any single aspect of horn practicing this method can change what's possible
in short order!
