Un examen de los principios bá,sicos que rigen la té,cnica Alexander y su aplicació,n a la educació,n infantil y a las necesidades de actores, atletas, mú,sicos, etc. Cabe esperar que este libro sea recibido como una meditada y bien fundada adició,n al escaso nú,mero de obras que tratan de alertar al pú,blico general sobre los dañ,os causados por el mal uso que se da al cuerpo en nuestra sociedad. Al mismo tiempo, esta obra nos orienta sobre la manera de recuperar su uso má,s adecuado y saludable. En tanto que alumno, profesor y lector de muchos textos relacionados con el funcionamiento de nuestros dispositivos motores, el señ,or Gelb me parece especialmente capacitado para hablar con autoridad.… (mere)

With the wealth of information and principles for action presented by Michael Gelb in this book one wonders where to start? It provides an "inspirational" approach to improving your mind and your life. I have always been fascinated by fictional superheroes and I also enjoy reading about the lives of geniuses of the past in all fields of endeavor. This book uses a close study of the life and achievements of Leonardo da Vinci to identify principles that each of us can apply in our life to improve and reach a level of genius beyond that we might have thought possible.
The book is divided into three parts: Part One includes a concise biography and list of Leonardo's accomplishments; while Part Two focuses on the "Seven Da Vincian Principles" that include curiosity, a focus on the senses, use of ambiguity and development of whole-brain thinking. While the principles are not unique to Leonardo, this presentation is particularly effective and helpful. Part Three discusses the art of drawing and perspective which is at the heart of Leonardo's art. The inclusion of a chronology of Leonardo's life, which spanned the last half of the fifteenth century into the first decades of the sixteenth, and a topical bibliography of recommended reading increases the value of this truly inspirational book.

Gelb's work definitely contains some valuable "self-help" nuggets that can be applied to general problem-solving. One such nugget involves Edison's use of mind-maps that help individuals physically "chart" strategies for tackling problems. The book focuses on how "failure" is often critical to future success and how optimism can shape results. It also explores some of Edison's well-known mantras (example: make everything as simple as possible -- but no any simpler). In all candor, some of the book was a bit dry and seemed unnecessarily redundant in a few spots -- and I'm a big fan of business books. But overall, I'm glad I took the time to read it.… (mere)
