Very short, no pictures, containing bland, stock posture exercises along the lines of "don't slouch", "keep your alignment". Possibly an AI-generated book.

Mouritz description: 

This is a short article rather than a book, with only 65-70 words per page as it is set in a very large font size with double line-spacing. (In total I estimate it to contain less than 5,000 words. Even a short paperback book would contain some 30,000 words.) It contains no pictures, no bibliography, nothing about the author or her credentials for writing about the Alexander Technique.

It briefly touches upon the existence of such concepts as primary control and non-doing, but does not apply any of the principles of the Technique to the all the corrective exercises which take up most of the "book".

The advice is along the lines of "Try to maintain good posture by avoiding slouching or arching your back too much" (p. 44), and "Make sure to walk with good posture by keeping your head, shoulders, and hips aligned and upright" (p. 45).

For "extra material" the book advises you to look for "workshops, online course, or credible websites" (p. 102).

This appears to be AI-generated text.
