Explaining the Alexander Technique - ISBN 095435222X - Walter Carrington and Seán Carey

edited July 2007 in Learning
Alexander's writings are used as a springboard to discuss not only what Alexander meant by certain passages and what he did not mean, but also to answer critics of Alexander and his books. The value of some present-day approaches to teaching is discussed and Mr. Carrington draws on his experiences in evaluating them which he does forthrightly. Alexander's writings are put in their historical context - sometimes with anecdotes - in order to explain the development of the Technique and Alexander's approach. Covers many topics from anatomy to zen, e.g. hands on the back of a chair, the nature of the primary control and the role of words in giving directions.

It would be great if there were some comments from those who read the book.

It would be even better if the book could be translated in other languages.
