To set context, I'm bit of a home exerciser, and have a couple of pilates books. The 'bible' itself I imagine contains a few details from other Body Control Pilates books (and I have the The Complete Classic Pilates method), however, where this one leaps ahead is that it is truly accessible.

It sets out beginner, intermediate and advanced exercises by chapter, and at the end of each, it lists 20, 30 and 40 min exercise plans for each level using these exercises. Prsonally, I find this much better than showing a beginner pose, then intermediate, then advanced on sequential pages rather than chaptering. Very helpful and clear. The exercises themselves are laid out with 2 pages per exercises, extremely clear pictures showing the poses as you move through them and good detail, but not too much (the problem with the previous Complete Classic Pilates Method, although a good book for detail, but tiny writing and a nightmare if practicing at home). It then has chapters showing exercises for actual studio equipment (pointless for me personally but hey, still good), exercises using a resistance band, the circle, ball, free weights etc. It then has chapters listing helpful exercises for various aspects relating to health issues and to resolve work/sport issues. Interestingly, it take typical exercises such as squats and when using weight equipment at the gym, and points out how pilates can help ensure correct posture when doing these (all with pictures)

It's not a small book, over A4 size, and pages lay out flat.

I have the Alycea Ungaro and other Pilates books, but wish I had had this when I first developed an interest in pilates. This would be good for absolute beginners, 'long-term' beginners and those who have delved more deeply.

Having suffered for years with restricted movement and pain in my shoulders and spent a fortune on chiropracters I was fortunate enough to have a pilates session with Lisa Bradshaw (co-author of the Pilates Bible). The tranformation in both movement and release from pain was dramatic. I now work daily using the Pilates Bible and the true benefits must be experienced to be appreciated. Generally I'm finding that my everyday awareness of posture and movement is having an amazing effect. Can't praise the book too highly.

I really like this book. It's simple, nice and clear.

If you are new to pilates, this will teach you all the basics. If you are an expert, you might find some insights, but I guess that you might need something more specialized.
