This book is incredibly thorough, exploring many facets of pianistic athleticism. There are excerpts from other books as well as exercises written specifically for Jonas' book by virtually all the major pianists of his day. While it can be overwhelming, there is a depth and explanation behind these exercises (some of them fiendishly difficult!) that similar books simply do not have. Towards the end there's also some preparatory exercises designed around difficult sections of the standard repertoire as well. All that said, a commitment to study these for a good amount of time daily is required to get the most benefit out of this book. But it puts all the other technical exercise books I've seen to shame, I just wish I had found it earlier!
