My wife has been obsessed with the dancing of Fosse after seeing Cabaret, so I bought this book as a gift for her. She absolutely loves it. The book is simplistic enough for her as a beginner to be slinking around the house in the characteristic Fosse style. Plus, one of our daughter's college friends is a theater major in college and has borrowed it and found it to be helpful in learning the dance style. I was skeptical after reading the negative review here on amazon, but found the book to be well-written and it was able to teach my novice wife and a theater student some new dance moves. Overall - highly recommended.
