A snapshot of Feldenkrais's process.

Moshe Feldenkrais was, in my mind, a genius. This book was my introduction to his work, and I could not recommend it more highly. In my opinion, this book is also the most accessible of his works. It is his shortest published work, originally intended to be the first in a series of case studies for practitioners. The bad news is that Moshe never published the other case studies.

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.

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

Feldenkrais was extremely wise man, but same time his books are kind of hard to read. But not this one. As it's mainly a description of a case and the process to help person restore their abilities. Not too much of philosophical thoughts are included. Don't get me wrong, it's not that I disagree with his point of view, rather the opposite, but I can find it hard to read.
Definitely recommend this book and then others, with exercises!

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.

This is the best introduction to the feldenkrais method. Very thin and light reading.
