    Review quote
    One of the UK's leading Alexander teachers, Carolyn Nicholls has just written a brilliant book on the Technique: The Posture Workbook (GBP14.99, D&B Publishing). If you want to learn how to apply the Alexander methods to everyday positions (such as driving and computer work), this is a good buy because it has photos showing what to do and what not to do. Helen Sillver, The Ecologist Every singer, musician or actor will have experienced tensions or postural problems at some stage. The Alexander Technique is a successful way of training the body to cope with these strains; and this book is an indispensable 'self-help' addition to the performer's library. Neil Jenkins, International Opera Singer The Posture Workbook presents the Alexander Technique in a fresh and engaging way and is a useful tool for people who just want to learn more about how to modify their posture - and it is also useful for Alexander teachers and their pupils. Hilary King, AT teacher This is a terrific book. It introduces the reader to the concepts and principles of the Alexander Technique in a friendly and interesting way, answering virtually all the questions of the inevitably puzzled new Alexander student. I am happy to recommend it to all of my students, and also to those who are curious and considering lessons in the technique. Thank you Carolyn Nicholls! Ellen Bierhorst, AT Teacher
