Sir Stafford Cripps says of Mr. Alexander :
" I regard it as one of the fortunate experiences of my life thatI should have met F. Matthias Alexander at a time when Ihad been suffering physically for many years, and that Ishould have had the opportunity of going through a coursewith him. There can be no doubt as to the value of histechnique judged by the practical results which I have myself experienced."
Aldous Huxley, the celebrated writer, says :
" It is now possible to conceive of a totally new type of educa-tion affecting the entire range of human activity ... an edu-cation which, by teaching them the proper use of the self,would preserve children and adults from most of the diseasesand evil habits that now afflict them. ... I heartily recom-mend this latest and, in many ways, most enlightening of
Mr. Alexander's books. In
The Universal Constant in Living
they will find, along with a mass of interesting facts, theripest wisdom of a man who, setting out fifty years ago todiscover a method for restoring his lost voice, has come, bythe oldest of indirect roads, to be a quite uniquely important,because uniquely practical, philosopher, educator, and physi-ologist."
