This review is from: Let Your Life Flow: The Physical, Psychological and Spiritual Benefits of the Alexander Technique (Paperback)
I read this book a couple of years ago and liked it a lot then, by chance, found Alex Maunder somewhere on the internet. I was looking for someone to help me with the Focusing technique. Alex now coaches me by Skype on a combination of the Alexander Technique and Focusing, and it works a treat.
The book is well-written and written sincerely. I don't agree with every line (and Alex is a bit heavy on the adjectives for my taste ;-), but these small reservations are insignificant compared to the book's overall value. The technique is well explained. In particular, the reader is left with a clear idea of what it involves to follow Alexander Technique lessons, and what can be expected from them. As you will find out from reading, a successful outcome is a subtle and paradoxical thing.
The final couple of chapters have a philosophical flavour, and you may or may not agree with Alex's conclusions. Once again, however, the sincerity/authenticity of the writing shines through.
