In diesem dritten und berühmtesten seiner Bücher schildert F.M. Alexander (1869-1955) sehr persönlich und detailliert die Umstände, Experimente und Entdeckungen, die ihn zur "Entwicklung einer Technik" führten.Professor Nicolaas Tinbergen würdigte in seiner Nobelpreisrede von 1974 diese Tatsache - nämlich dass "ein Mann ohne medizinische Ausbildung eine der wahrhaft grossartigen Beschreibungen von medizinischer Forschung und Praxis" gibt. Andere Autoren sprechen davon, Alexander habe durch seine intensiven Beobachtungen des unter normalen Bedingungen tätigen Organismus "eine Physiologie des lebendigen Organismus geschaffen"."Der Gebrauch des Selbst" ist das eingänglichste der vier Werke F.M. Alexanders und enthält viele sehr nützliche Informationen, die dem Leser die Alexander-Technik näher bringen. Dazu gehört vor allem Alexanders Schilderung, welchen Weg er beschreiten musste, um die Grundprinzipien seiner Technik zu entwickeln. Dieses Buch ist somit ein Grundstein der Alexander-Technik. Für Lehrer und engagierte Schüler dieser Technik steht es an erster Stelle. Um Alexanders Methode wirklich zu verstehen, ist es sinnvoll, die Geschichte ihrer Entwicklung zu kennen. So erst kann man nachvollziehen, auf welche Prinzipien Alexander seine Methode gründete
