For the price, I am very underwhelmed. The illustrations are very poor. Just stick figures doing rough approximations of the movements. The tips and instructions are not very clear, and it seems you need a background in tumbling to fully understand it.
To be fair, I haven't thoroughly read it. When I do, and if my first impression is wrong I will update this. But as it stands, do not buy this book if you want a resource to teach beginners how to tumble if you do not have a tumbling background.
Yes, stick figures and scant descriptions might make this a useless volume BUT if (and only if) you're interested in clowning and physical comedy, this is a rare treasure trove of theatrical acrobatics, material only known to dying vaudevillians.
