Feldenkrais is a freakin' genius. Let me just say that. I'm not sure this book reveals all the ways he's a genius - but it does open a window into his thinking process as a genius and that's very cool. If you knew nothing about his work and have never witnessed this sort of stuff happening, I have no idea if reading this book would give you a sense of it. It's not nearly so compelling as some of the transcriptions of interviews and speeches that he's given. It's still pretty compelling, though. ...more
What an inspiring tale! This book really demonstrates Feldenkrais thought processes as he attempts to help Nora improve the quality of her life. It's a great read, especially for those studying or looking to learn more about the Feldenkrais Method.
Dont like self help books... this is a different version of them. His style bothers me a bit.

This is the best introduction to the feldenkrais method. Very thin and light reading.
Great awareness of what happened to Nora when she had her stroke!
