The Alexander Technique Resource Book is more than a guide to the literature. The text offers an overview and history of the method, and serves as an excellent introduction to the work of Alexander. Many pedagogues will recall the dearth of information when the Alexander Technique was first embraced by voice teachers. Fortunately, that is no longer the case, and singers interested in learning about the work of Alexander, or expanding their knowledge about the technique, will find this book a richly detailed road map for the journey.
