I like how it has picture demonstrations and an easy, intermediate and hard workout. It is a good reference book if you don't have the luxury of having your own Pilates trainer with you telling you what to do and how. It also has tips for which exercises to do depending on what sports you are involved in like for tennis, running, swimming, etc. Also a good but brief introduction to the equipment that you can use for Pilates.
I'm barely able to get through the fundamentals, so this is going back to the library for now. When I get a little stronger i may check it out again.

A surprisingly thorough and easy to follow book on something difficult to learn without the necessary correction and precision of an instructor.
- available in SG NLB 613.711 (Sengkang?)
- the DVD is good and make learning very easy.
Good Pilates book for beginners and intermediate. Well documented and great images.
