Lotte Berk was one of the most extraordinary women of our times. She became world famous as the devisor of the Lotte Berk Technique, a revolutionary fitness programme that led her to great fame and wealth during the 1960s and 1970s.

Among her students were a swathe of movers and shakers - Britt Ekland, Maureen Lipman, Geraldine McEwan, Zoe Wanamaker, Shirley Conran, Edna O'Brien, Prue Leith and Sian Phillips.

This is a compelling portrait of the outrageous German émigré by her daughter, Esther Fairfax. It reveals the inner workings of a Bohemian life lived to the extreme. Cajoled to dance naked in Paris at the age of 16, Fairfax's remarkable story embraces drug addiction, sexual liberation, poverty, isolation, fame, and finally, hope.
