More about the new András Pető book

Whilst in Hong Kong for the World Congress on Conductive Education in December 2009 it ocurred to me that the little that was known about  András Pető was scattered around in various different places. Why not bring it all together in a book? For the last eighteen months we have been doing just that and along the way managed to get three previously unpublished papers and facsimiles of  a exam booklet and poems by Pető for inclusion in the book. These were the icing on the cake!

Getting all this collected, edited and ready for publication took longer than expected and publication a fortnight ago of  András Pető was a day of celebration for Conductive Education Press.
Copies of this are now being read and comments coming in. Yesterday Susie Mallett blogged her thoughts about it which can be read at
and says her favourite piece is the one  by Júlia Dévai , which was specially written for the book. (Júlia also very kindly allowed us to reproduce the exam booklet and poems from her personal archive.) Her piece is my favourite too. It brings alive the time when Pető’s conductive pedagogy was slowly emerging, in great detail, a  fascinating account.
I wonder what other readers of the book are deciding  are their favourites.
Please do write and let us know.

New book about Conductive Education

 

Eine Geschichte nach einem Schlaganfall in Wort und Bild
(A post stroke story in words and pictures)
Waltraud Heussinger
Nürnberg: Conductor Nürnberg
10 euros (£8.50)

Conductor Nürnberg has just published a new book in the series Conductive Lifestyles.

A lady who had a stroke relates her experiences and explains what a difference the discovery of Conductive Education has made to her life and this book, edited and introduced by Susie Mallett,  is copiously illustrated with coloured photos taken by her husband. The story is told in German with parallel English translation by Susie providing what I believe is the first book by an adult recording her experiences. It makes very interesting reading.

As Conductor Nürnberg  is based in Germany I am acting as Susie’s UK postwoman and therefore I have some copies. If you wish to purchase a copy, please email her at

small66711@aol.com

with your details and she will invoice you, send me your UK address and I will post a copy to you. This will be much cheaper and quicker than sending it from Germany.

I also  still have a few copies of  CN’s first book Tell me a Story you can purchase too see  http://www.gillian-maguire.info/2011/02/let-me-tell-you-story.html

Again, email Susie re ordering and payment.

More on masterates

A little while ago I posted a blog on masterates in Conductive Education after finding a request for information about such a course on the Internet.

Today Susie Mallett has posted on her blog about Masterates and why she wouldn’t want one. It makes very interesting reading and I will keep an eye for any comments made.
