Why does water, in streams and rivers, always take a winding course? Do common principles and rhythms underlie the movement of water, whether it be in the sea or in a plant -- or in the blood of a human being?The laws revealed in the subtle patterns of water in movement are shown in this thought-provoking work to be the same as those perceptible in the shaping of bones, mu...more

Recommends it for: anyone interesting in body movement
Recommended to Julene by: Emilie Conrad
Shelves: movement
Beautiful book with pictures of water dynamics. It is a recommended book on continuum movement's list and it shows what and how our bodies can move since we are comprised of water. We and water have lots in common and we forget the many naural movements, this book is a reminder and a lovely lesson.
My favorite part of this book is extensive pictures. The text was more challenging than I anticipated, but I found if I just focused on a few pages at a time I got a lot out of it. The book is an odd mixture of science and metaphor, often vacillating between the two without warning. All in all, another text I'm sure I will periodically return to.
This was a very provocative book -- about how water (and air) moves when flowing. And then showing how this is related all sorts of other things that we usually assume are not moving, like human bones. Have you ever wondered why water makes that braid as it pours, or why so many cultures revere the spiral?

the pictures are ok, i guess, but the overall effect makes me embarrased for the author. i was hoping for some sort of lucid philosophical writing, instead i found a pile of the most repulsive new-agey, hippie-dippey crap. absolutely no rigor whatsoever.

I love the pictures! Someday I will sit and read about WHY water and smoke make the most beautiful spiral patterns...
