    1. The body and the mind are not separate. After becoming an athlete late in life and gaining heightened awareness of my body, I found myself nodding my head at every other page. It's not just about athleticism, however--not at all. Feldenkrais delves into how and why the body learns, how the mind makes connections based on experience. Now I see why all dancers and bodywork people I know always mention him. Reading this book has been extremely enlightening.

    2. Moshe Feldenkrais wrote this book during the time that he was delivering the lectures later published as Body and Mature Behavior. In many ways, this book picks up where he left off in the lectures. Additionally, this book has the added benefit of not having been published until much later. Having read all of Dr. Feldenkrais’s books, I am of the distinct opinion that this book presents many of his early ideas in a much more readable and less technical form than his very early writings.

    3. As enlightening, and stunning, as this book is, I'll have to read it at least 6 more times to fully grasp all of Moshe's ideas. There are ideas that resonate with me now, and the ones that didn't I suspect will come in time, hopefully as I go through the Feldenkrais training. I look forward to that next time, as I'll read with a different mind-set and a new perspective.

    4. The book is brilliant. The connection between the way that people control their own bodies and the anxiety and neuroses of the mind is spectacular and tangible. I think everyone should read this book - it's mind blowing.

    5. the preface and introduction alone have already made me look at things differently. just like that the other day i jumped in the ice cold river and later had my first dive in 15 years.
