Bendy Kate's Little Book of Handstands
Being right-side-up too boring? learn to turn that frown upside-down, and then start smiling instead, because it would still be a frown, just an upside-down one. Bendy's latest book covers everything handstand and hand balancing, from basic conditioning and positions, up to and including contortion handstands (though maybe before you start contorting about, you should read Bendy Kate's Advanced Stretching Technique first).
Learning from scratch
In the 14 chapters provided, you'll learn the basics of simple upright handstands, useful conditioning exercises, wall balances, entries and exits into handstands, and progressing up to balancing canes, one handed balances and contortion. As a result of this very broad range, this book is suitable for all levels, though if you're unsure of starting this kind of discipline, consult a trainer or professional before training.
Bendy Kate is not only a fantastic Pole Dancer (Two Time world championship winner), aerialist, and handbalancing performer (see her showreel below), she is also a BSc Hons in Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation, which allows her to explain the biomechanics of handstands and help you understand the physical foundations behind successful handbalancing.
