The Alexander Technique: A Skill for Life
Pedro de Alcantara
The first chapter covers the basic principles of the Technique; following chapters are on lessons, the teacher, performing arts, sports and exercise, and emotions (discussing, among other things, inhibition and the expression of feelings, detachment, the discomfort of change, relationships, psychotherapies). The author writes from his own experiences with humor and provides several case histories from pupils and teachers. The unity of mind and body and the principle of non-doing pervade this introductory book; it is erudite, intelligent, and pertinent to pupils and teachers alike.
