One of the thngs that is so impressive about this book is that everything is explained so clearly. There is no mumbo jumbo. Different chapters explain how the body should function when carrying out various daily activities, and how it so often fails to function as it should.

The author describes what ways of thinking might be useful to deal with such problems. She describes how such thoughts might be combined with actions to produce an improved result.

For example there is a whole chapter about sitting, which is rather useful for people who subject their bodies to considerable strain by slumping in front of a computer for hours on end and then go home to slump in front of a TV for another few hours.

At the end of each chapter there are suggested exercises which combine thought and action for readers to practise, which will give them some idea about how the Alexander Technique might be useful to them.

The photos (lots of them) are outstanding and the CD, enclosed in the book giving audio guidance neatly complements the clear explanations in the book.

And what a great cover photo!

All in all an exceptional introduction to the benefits of the Alexander Technique for the interested reader.

An excellent book especially since there is a very good online recording you can download. This is one of the easiest books to read when it comes to The Alexander Technique - my only criticism is that there are a few typos. Well worth the money! All of you out there with rheumatic/back problems or who just need something calming in their lives, if you can't afford or locate an Alexander practitioner, this is the next best thing.

One of the most useful books I've purchased for a while. Gives a good sense of what AT is really about & what can be achieved. Clear ideas on moving in a stress-free way in a number of situations, as well as providing supportive instructions via download.

This, in my opinion, is the best book you can find on the Alexander Technique. It's written with humour, and introduces the reader to the technique and how it can help them in their daily lives. There are many interesting examples and personal stories. Very easy to read, very practical and includes a CD which I downloaded onto my ipod for daily use, even when I'm away from home. Finally a book on the AT that is modern and very accessible. I am an Alexander technique teacher and I recommend this book to all my pupils who want to read up a little on the technique.

Despite saying so on the back cover, the book no longer comes with the free CD which is essential to performing the various workshop procedures provided throughout the book.

This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to try the AT for themselves at home, the instructions are clear and interesting, it has the added benefit of an audio CD included.
