The benefits, indeed necessities, of movement occur at the earliest stages of human life. Movement early in life gives us motor skills and helps develop both intellectual and social capacities. Even later in life knowledge of movement and the participation in movement adds importantly to our well being. And movement is fun. Indeed the book itself is a fun as well as informative read.
Maxine Sheets-Johnstone has written a previous book on movement which I have and refer to often. However, for the reader interested in the basics of movement and its power to enrich our lives in many dimensions this volume is a superb introduction. The author's writing is not just informative from one of the world's experts on movement, but also written in a light and often amusing style.
I admire this book and recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the critical roles movement plays in our lives.

set of movements but of re-discovering your own. You reclaim something that's been
there all along but which you've been too busy to notice." As `putting movement into
your life' shows, we can surprise ourselves. We can, as it were, edit our dynamics
such that what we do has a new felt verve and sense about it. We readily have the
option of doing so." We can, as her chapter subtopics indicate, have "adventures in
outer space," "kick up our heels," have "directional possibilities" and, my favorite,
realize that "waiting was never so comfortable." Throughout the book in special fold-out sections, Sheets-Johnstone references philosophers, sociologists, psychologists, and educators, among others, who have focused their research and/or practice on understanding why and how bodies move. Maxine Sheets-Johnstone is the voice of reconstituted wisdom and the pied piper of fun.
