"Filled with powerful insights and original thinking, the Conable book is a superb, practical guide for Alexander Students" Michael Gelb "Not only does it offer meaty, practical information for students; it also provides valuable insights for teachers....The best explanation of primary control and downward pull that I've yet seen....A treasure trove...for any Alexander teacher working with students in activity....A healthy extension of F.M. [Alexander]'s work." Robert Cohen, ACAT News "This is a book to read with enthusiasm and attentiveness. It could influence profoundly a teacher's effectiveness with students....A book of immediate usefulness to the performer and teacher, and one which will stimulate productive self-evaluation and awareness.
