2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Lisa Gillispie, LMT on Dec 1 2001
Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very helpful when doing my certification exam. It clearly explains the anatomy of the system and broadens one's understanding of what this therapy is about. I don't believe that this therapy is something that can be learned from a book, so I didn't have that expectation from it. The techniques that he does share are simple, basic techniques that one can begin to play with. If it stirs your curiousity for more, get yourself to a class. I've also found it helpful for clients of mine that want to know more about the nuts and bolts of the technique in a readable and clear form, without the length of a textbook.

though this book is supposed to have been revised for the general public im sure even professionals will find the overuse of medical terminology tedious.

Get the "Heart of Listening" instead. Pictures are poor and the text is very hard to read. There is no logical order to this book. The author should have worried more about the content of the book instead of using words like "Serendipitous". Gee, when is the last time you've seen that..High School!

Blood brain barrier, cerebral spinal fluid circulation, the layers of dura, locations of vesicles and other structures...all the things my anatomy/physiology professors spent not-quite-enough-time on. Putting it all together at a level that someone with a reasonable knowledge of anatomy can absorb, this book resembles a textbook in some ways. Vague on actual practices of this therapy, but personally I don't care because the a/p is the meat of the book and it's very interesting and enlightening.

A short course manual Dec 7 2004
By small acts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Originally a manual for a relicensure seminar for chiropractic doctors, it was published at the request of John Upleger, D.O. Not intended as a full textbook, it was meant to be a brief workshop introduction to clinical practice for doctors and worked quite well in that context. The book does offer some insights that weren't presented anywhere else, such as the "lymphatic" function of CSF circulation through the brain, which might be the most compelling reason to seek craniosacral work. There is also an interesting discussion of the neurology of palpation. People who criticize one book over another are missing the point. The various craniosacral books aren't competing with each other; it's best to get as many as you can and cull what you can from each of them. Sometimes a short course is easier to digest. The Heart of Listening, which is a phenomenal and vastly more comprehensive work, can also be overwhelming and confusing for the beginner. If you actually do the exercises in this book, you will have a good start on what should prove to be a long journey of developing skills.

Great help Feb. 20 2006
By A. Nagler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm in a class for Cranial/Sacral with a teacher who isn't very good at teaching. Frustrated with the lack of materials, a general disorderly method of giving what he does know, and his very slim instruction in palpation, I began a search for a book to help me get what I wanted. This book is fantastic! It clearly lays out the 10 step protocol and gives great tips for discovering the rhythm through palpation. The illustrations are helpful as well. I was quickly loosing any interest in a subject (CST) that I have been wanting to learn for years but this book saved the day! I showed it to my teacher and he said that it would be a good text book to use for his classes in the future. I hope, for their sake, he does.

The print was large enough for me to read and was not complicated reading. To the point without all the filler verbiage.
