But that doesn't have to be you...That's why I put together the Secrets of the Handstand.

3.0 out of 5 stars May be good for the beginner. June 14, 2012

The author have clearly not mastered hand balancing at any high level, this in itself does not make the book bad. I like that he supplies several different methods for some of the positions instead of sticking with just one way. Also its good that he has no pre-set set of values as to the best aestetic of handbalancing, but he misses his own point a few times by adding his own aestetic preferences without supplying arguments as to why. Providing only stretching for the wrist, shoulders and back, without mobilisation and strengthening exercises, seems a bit lacking to me.
All in all i think its a good book for the beginner, but does not hold anything new or unique if you have done a bit of work with hand balancing.

Short version? The sequence of techniques ("lead-up stunts") and diligent practice will help you achieve the handstand. Logan Christopher has a proven set of exercises, though their order doesn't seem based on any definite reason.

In a bit more detail, the tone of the writing--to be considered a real manual for achieving a skill--is very conversational and informal, which, at times, makes it come off as rambling. Generally, several spelling and grammar mistakes were overlooked in editing, which would be acceptable if the book were a bit more e-book friendly. The table of contents is simply a list of random topics, with no hierarchical arrangement, and there are no links provided to jump from topic to topic.

Also, other than a "topic name" single line heading (in identical font to the body text), there is nothing which distinguishes subject changes from general text.

But do not misunderstand the criticisms above as me disliking the manual: the pictures are appropriately placed, useful, and illustrative. Christopher's descriptions of technique in each exercise are thorough. His exploration of variations on each move make for fun skill practice and lots of variety.

The manual will do exactly as intended, if you put in the work; you simply do not get the sense you are receiving tips from an expert while reading it, so much as you feel like you are talking to a slightly more experienced acquaintance. With some edits and some end-user interface improvements, this manual could be a real gem. For now, it is a valuable set of practices to achieve the handstand, arranged in book format with some room to grow.

4.0 out of 5 stars exactly what I needed! May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded a copy of this to my Mac. It's short and simple--but not at all lacking in the necessary specific details. I am delighted with the clear, simple step-by-step instructions. Everything is illustrated with photos. The key elements are broken down from the inside-out AND from the outside-in, so both internal muscle cues AND visual/positional cues are highlighted. I'm already making far better progress than I was just trying to launch into this on my own. I'm grateful for the generously shared insights of the author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really, really bad March 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This may very possibly be the worst handstand tutorial of all the bad ones out there. The author takes you through a long list of other arbitrary "stunts" he suggests you "master" before even trying wall handstands, and he doesn't even provide progressions for them, just asks you to try until you make it. You'll never learn to do handstands if you follow the plan in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and Insightful May 16, 2012
By John Q.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been working on the handstand for about a month now, and have found Logan's explanations extremely helpful. The guidance in this book is very similar to his Quickstart DVD (where I started), yet for some reason I've found that I've absorbed some of the material better from reading it. The illustrations are very helpful. With or without the video this book is a tremendous help for learning how to do a handstand. I am regularly holding a handstand from 6-10 seconds in practices, and today I held it once for about 20 seconds. My arms, shoulders, wrists, and neck are the strongest they have ever been, and it is mostly due to Logan's materials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great help ! May 15, 2012
By Eric

The book helps you good through the way of building the handstand. It also good that is recommended that you should train/practice that fits you. For me the 'forearm stand' is a quiet helpful tool for balancing en strength, it's feels good for your shoulders, but it is more difficult to hold the forearm stand for 30 seconds than the handstand. I think more practice on this will devellop your handstand a lot.
