George’s travels and conductive lifestyle

This week I received a copy of George’s travelogue published last October and previewed at the 8th World Congress of Conductive Education in Munich.

George has cerebral palsy. His  Hungarian mother and grandmother arranged for him to  attend Conductive Education sessions in the Pető Institute when he was  a small boy, and since then he  has lived a conductive lifestyle supported by his family.

This book recounts a holiday in the Rockies of Canada, and another on a  cruise down the Danube travelling through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and, of course, Hungary. Both holidays were spent with his family, sharing the experience and supporting him.

 It is a wonderful read that makes the reader think he/she is on the journey too, overcoming all the obstacles in a very cheery manner.  What seems normal and easy for most of us is a real challenge for George and he manages it all beautifully!

This book is a very interesting read that I recommend to anyone who would like to know more about living a conductive lifestyle.

If you wish to obtain a copy, please contact Susie Mallett at  for details of this and other publications from CN Press.

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

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

Again, email Susie re ordering and payment.
