It is amusing, informative, well organized and thorough. I think it is the owner's manual the human body should come with. Topics include:
feet & shoes
knees, hip & back
arms, elbows, wrists & hands
pregnancy, childbirth, babies & children
walking and gait
Yes... She refers you to her videos (many on you tube) because you can't demonstrate on paper like you can on camera. She is quirky, fun and real. If you're looking for a reference book or a step by step guide - look elsewhere. That said, there is a wealth of information here that we would all be wise to apply to our daily lives.
If you don't know Katy Bowman's stuff already, get into it. She has the ability to explain why a certain alignment is important, in an accessible way, and then explain what to do about it without saying 'imAgine your pelvis is a bowl' - instead she gives you points on your body to line up, so you can adjust yourself.
Reading on the classic kindle made me long to read the book on an iPad or something, as there are are links to videos and articles that you might want to follow. Instead I had to type them in elsewhere. A few links were broken unfortunately, that's the way of the interweb.
Also, some good further reading tips and an interesting recommendation for a meditation course which I am thinking about. In short, something for everybody.
