Improvisational Therapy : A Practical Guide for Creative Clinical Strategies
Bradford P. Keeney
Systemic Therapy Press
Practical, and essential for the clinician.
Dr. Keeney presents a wealth of information in a small volume. Little time is wasted on theory and the question "Why?". Most of the book is devoted to explicit descriptions of techniques that can be powerful techniques of change. In the first third of the book, Dr. Keeney describes a number of techniques from the MRI, forerunners of many of today's "power therapies". In the second third, ...
The Soulful Art of African-American Quilts: Nineteen Bold, Improvisational Projects
Kansas City Star Books
Finally, a book about African American quilts by an African American quilter! This wonderful book has many project specifics for those who want patterns, as well as much inspiration for those of us who work without patterns. Each quilt is paired with an historic quilt, and a "memory" is written along side. I was initially impatient with these written memories, as I did not really see how they ...
Amazing Phrasing: 50 Ways to Improve Your Improvisational Skills (Alto Sax)
Bought the book several months ago. I have continued to use it everyday in my practice sessions. It covers all the important areas that I'm working on. Even though I use it everyday, I am only half way through the exercises provided on each subject. Should challenge me for a long time to come. CD included has a good rhythm section as well as a Sax part. You can take the Sax part out ...
Improvisational Models of Music Therapy
Kenneth E. Bruscia
Charles C. Thomas Publisher
Clear insight into different models of music therapy
This book is a treasure for people who want to know more about music therapy. It compares different models of music therapy always with the same categories, which makes it easy to find differences and similarities. It is not only refered to british music therapy but also to international music therapy (e.g. Orff-model). It actually describes different models of music therapy with the emphasize on ...
Improvisational Negotiation: A Mediator's Stories of Conflict About Love, Money, Angerand the Strategies That ...
A very entertaining and resourceful read
Mr. Krivis has succeeded in creating a very entertaining and resourceful book that anyone in the conflict resolution arena would find a must read, including attorneys, mediators, claims adjusters, negotiators, human resource personnel, private parties in conflict, and the list could go on and on.

How I Taught My Brother to Cook: A Food Memoir and Guide to Simple Improvisational Cooking in the Tuscan, ...
John & Patrick Barrows
Slumgullion and Nude-ish
I was given this book as a gift and I placed it directly onto the bookshelf, where it sat for over a month - probably because the pictures of the authors/brothers make them look like two psycho killers. I'm glad I finally found time to start thumbing through it (my thumbing turned to reading - the discourse between the two brothers is hilarious) and I got hooked on the whole crazy thing: Italian ...

Training to Imagine: Practical Improvisational Theatre Techniques to Enhance Creativity, Teamwork, ...
Imaginative, and Effective, Training Activities
Over the last couple of years, I have become interested in adapting techniques from improv theatre to organizational training settings. Koppett's book helped me solidly solidify my thinking on the matter. She divides her book into two sections, Principles and Activities. The Principles section is broken into seven chapters that address trust, listening and awareness, non-verbal ...
Evolution (The Improvisational Style of Bob Brookmeyer For Trombone)
An editorial glitch.
I second the previous reviewer's comments, without qualification; but I'd like to warn buyers of one major proofreading failure, in the presentation of "I Hear a Rhapsody." The transcription occupies six pages, pp. 64-69. In my copy (just yesterday received from Amazon), which I have no reason to believe is unique, the content of page 66 is erroneously reprinted as page 68, the music that ...
Improvisational Design: Continuous, Responsive Digital Communication
The MIT Press
Object Oriented Designing
Ishizaki presents an articulate description of decentralized dynamic design systems in a manner easy enough for a complete luddite to understand. The book makes no direct technical references (although it does present algorithms in a formal language invented by the author consisting of English words), but the fundamentals of the design process are easily implemented on any design project. The ...

Playing Along: 37 Group Learning Activities Borrowed from Improvisational Theater

I met Izzy at a workshop he led several years ago. As a professional facilitator, I'm any trainer's worst nightmare: the professional in the audience. Well, Izzy and his workshop were awesome, and his book is a MUST HAVE for trainers and facilitators. Absolutely valuable in helping me re-think how I engage people in workshops I lead and develop.

Amazing Phrasing - Trumpet: 50 Ways to Improve Your Improvisational Skills
an excellent guide
I found this book particularly appealing and useful as it was not the usual weighty, daunting volume as are many other books on improvisation. It is also simple to use, clearly laid out and sequential. The exercises can be easily managed by the average amateur player and they give an invaluable insight into how improvisational skills can be developed in relatively simple understandable terms. ...

The Improvisational Cook
William Morrow Cookbooks
Fabulous recipes/Great book
I'm a home cook, and this and her newer book are 2 of my top 3 cookbooks.(Gourmet being the other, but please please no one ever repeat those impossible- to- read yellow titles!) I find these recipes to be wonderful, and her suggestions on how to build from each one work really well. Many of the techniques and tips are not new to me, but my family and friends think the recipes are terific. ...
Amazing Phrasing - Keyboard: 50 Ways to Improve Your Improvisational Skills
Hal Leonard Corporation
There must be 50 ways to lead your improv
Invaluable resource for all levels of keyboardists. I wandered through the first 19 "Ideas" and thought I had pretty much been through those. Then I began reading into Idea #20. Progressively more intricate and advanced content (for me) through the remaining chapters. I have enjoyed listening to Debbie Lemke over the last 25 years here in Santa Barbara. It is great to finally have her ...
