Self development books come in two varieties: direct-specific content (usually includes strategies and formulas), and then vague-insightful creative (thought) provoking content. This book is the latter category.
The insight that Moshe presents on the mind-body connection was massive towards improving my ability as a meditator and communicator. The basic takeaway for me was that thoughts are actually the result of the way in which you use your body, not the other way around. Once I realized this, I began to look at self-development as first beginning with the orientation of my body, and then gradually shifting my attention to my thoughts to notice just how much more easily they could be changed once the mind-body connection was interrupted by using Feldenkrais' technique.
It goes much deeper than this, but I constantly find myself reaching for the book to have a glance at my notes and sections I've highlighted. If you're looking for something to absorb in one read, this isn't that type of book. Just like Feldenkrais techniques it's meant to be interacted with creatively, which means repeatedly and in different states and moods throughout the day.

Good Introduction Book to Feldenkrais' Ideas2016年4月20日 - (Amazon.com)
Nicely bound hardcover book. I bought it March 2016 as I am a participant in a book club discussing this book. It is one of Moshe Feldenkrais's easier books to read. Very satisfied with my purchase.
