The first review for András Pető  appeared in The Budapest Times on Friday and this has now gone up on the newspapers website at:

The editor has made it a feature article with some pictures.

The review includes a brief account of the history of Conductive Education’s discovery by the West, particularly the UK and an overview of the book’s contents.

The editors of András Pető have produced a compilation consisting of memories of colleagues and others who knew him at different times, notes and letters written by Pető himself, obituaries following his death in 1967 and a selection of overviews.
