The author has developed a series of exercises supposed to aid women in getting rid of protuberant buttocks and an overstuffed waistline. The book provides a series of exercises said to be useful for this purpose and also some diets said to be valuable for overcoming constipation as well as obesity. The author is especially inclined to recommend the dances much used by the savages in their religious and social efforts, commonly called the "danse du ventre" or more vulgarly known as the "belly dance."
