Review:

Richard Brennan explains coherently how the Alexander Technique can help to release muscular tension. The demonstration photographs are particularly good and compliment the text. If you suffer from back pain or muscular tension of any sort, the Alexander Technique is worth a try and this is the book to introduce you to it."

The Irish Times

What lifts The Alexander Technique Manual way out of the ruck of other self-help books is the exceptionally good colour photography - including multi-exposure ones to express movement. It is a pleasure to look at and amply justifies the big format, making the book both attractive and remarkably good value.

Books Ireland

This book is illustrated with tons of glorious full-colour step-by-step photographs on nearly every page. Each one successfully communicating the subtle movements visually, which means the reader can actually understand how the technique works. This manual is guaranteed to help you to discover its full potential."
