i agree with the previous reviewer that the guide is misleading because it doesn't show any spinning around the pole at all. i heard from others that the peekaboo pole does not support weight and if this book was meant to complement it, it makes sense because it just teaches you moves and poses around the pole and not any moves that makes the pole carry your weight.

the poses/moves in this book are very show-girly or typical sexy girly bar moves. it doesn't teach you tricks that i was looking for. whilst the book is cute to look at, the pictures are rather crass for my taste.

i got the idiot's guide book to poledancing and i thought that was much better. it comes with a DVD and it is more useful should you actually want to spin around the pole.

I bought this from Barnes and Noble for the same price ($10) as a gag gift for my friend's birthday. We take an actual pole dance fitness class that utilizes difficult tricks and spins, so I wasn't expecting any real instruction out of this book. We spent a good 20 minutes going through it laughing at the way they describe some of the moves. It also gives you "ideas" on how to dress/dance/and music selections for different roles you may want to play that are based on colors (again hilarious).

I would not suggest this book for actual pole dancing instruction, the moves entailed are pretty much common sense things to do with a pole and don't really require much instruction. However, it is definitely worth the $10 for a good laugh or as something risque to leave out on your coffee table when people (especially family) come to visit ;)

This book, as others have pointed out, is not actually a pole dance guide, unless you are not interested in any kind of aerial work, and I'm including a basic fireman spin in that. Naturally, people have been disappointed in this book and say it's misleading. I understand that criticism, but I purchased it for a low price and I can honestly say it has some interesting ideas for floor work and moves that can be done as transitions between floor work and aerial work, or just to give you a break between spins. Remember, even in most pole dance competitions, you have to do a little bit of floor work.

Also, even though I wouldn't recommend it, you could probably use some of the routines in the book for amateur nights especially where there are rules about keeping one foot on the floor at all times (liability reasons?) and win yourself a nice little prize. I mean, if you wanted to put your skills to use that way.

This book only shows standing and static moves. No spins are shown which is also considered pole dancing. To call it a spin by spin guide is misleading.

I bought this book because it was written by the makers of my boyfriend's pole. What a WASTE! I should have just skipped buying the book and taught myself how to walk around the pole! I would suggest you buy this book if you...heck I can't even think of why I would suggest it at all!!
