This is a brilliant book, but I purchased it not because I'm a dancer of movement professional. I play the drums, and found it interesting to understand how the body really works in regards to movement, and approaches to improve movement. Eric provides a very detailed outline of methods of imagery, which are aid movement. He also provides a fantastic section on anatomy which would rival medical text books. His writing is insightful, clever, and presented with well thought out illustrations, and exercises to improve movement. I've recently given up working in an office, and pursuing my life long passion to play drums professionally, and this book has certainly help me in regards to; posture, relaxation of muscle groups, understanding of particular movements, and general well being. An interesting, but unintended benefit which also occurred was that mood improved dramatically (I suffer with depression), and as a result of improving my posture, and sitting upright, and using the imagery, I've found I'm alot happier these day.
