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.
