I picked up this book and I did not expect much. On the back cover, it reads: “Daniel McGowan has personally introduced more than 7,000 people in the U.S. and Europe to Alexander Technique since 1983.”
That kind of talk reminded me of my Christian upbringing when evangelists would boast about how many people they’d baptized.
Alexander Technique is extraordinarily difficult to be captured in words. It has to be experienced in person from the hands of a qualified teacher.
I’m now halfway through the book and I am pleasantly surprised. It may be the best book on the Alexander Technique. Not for its prose style, but for its insights.
