I ordered this book as gift for myself. The book has 231 pages and a flexable cover. I wished it had a spirsl bound cover though. It covers a wide varity of topics including, bow hold, left hand position, shifting, bowing techniques, vibrato, and intonation. I usually pick out one or two excercises a day to review. There are 300 and most have pictures. This book is not for beginners because it has excercises in different positions. A beginner could do some of the excercises in my opinion, just not all of them. There is a lot reading so it would be for an older student. Love the book and it is worth the money.

I did not realize how many things my teacher never discusses until I got Basics by Simon Fischer. Anyone who is curious about what a top teacher offers will love this book...other method books are Dick and Jane compared to this. Don't hesitate, but be prepared to work on many new technique details once you get started; this volume goes beyond "basic."

This book breaks each technique into its many components. It thus helps identify what is causing a problem and makes it possible to solve the problem in the most efficient way.
