The idea for this book came whilst Blakey was teaching anatomy and physiology to dance students. He wanted to produce what he calls something like a 'car repair manual'. So it is really a body parts manual, concentrating on muscles - what they look like, what they are attached to, what they do, what happens when they weaken, what to watch out for to avoid injury and some simple first aid. The book includes many illustrations and clear diagrams. The book clearly identifies all the major muscles of the human body, and shows how they work. For each muscle there is straight forward information about first aid by massage, and an indication of particular dangers to watch out for.
Although not specifically related to the Alexander Technique, it is an excellent anatomical reference for students.
