At last what many people have been looking for: a well produced , highly artistic illustrated guide to the often difficult and arcane world of Ayurveda! While there are a number of excellent introductory books on this subject, until this one none have been presented in such an accessible visual format. If you have trouble getting into Ayurveda or introducing Ayurveda to your friends, family, students, or clients, this book may be exactly what you need. The Complete Illustrated Guide to Ayurveda makes the study of Ayurveda not so much an intellectual excercise as an enjoyable adventure. It uses traditional Indian art as well as contemporary illustrations and examples, to make the subject relevant to people today. Yet the book does not sacrifice anything by way of content. Anyone interested in Ayurvedic medicine or natural healing will want to have this book, not merely on the shelf, but out in the open for everyone to look at and benefit from. The END

If you know nothing about Ayurveda but are curious and want to know more, this is the place to start. Beautiful layout, art work and easy to read text, charts and photographs. This is not a how to manual but a layman's manual of concepts.

Format: Paperback
This book was interesting in that it explored regions of Ayurveda I had not encountered before. What I didn't care for was its lack of a doshic assessment test, lists of yes and no foods, and some common recipes. In that respect it was not specific enough to be used as a resource book. Then it was terribly specific in its case studies. At least in terms of herbs. It might use half a page to list ingredients in an herbal medicine then say nothing about dietary changes. I probably will not use this as a sourcebook. If you are looking for that (especially as a beginner) get Judith Morrisons THE BOOK OF AYURVEDA.

This is a fine intro to the Aryuveda view of health and wellness. The visual material (photos,drawings,etc) gives an excellent overview of Aryuveda philosophy.

Attractive and concise, the book supplies the reader with profiles of of subjects to enhance the understanding of how Aryuveda can be utilized in understanding personality and behavior. I also appreciate the cautions noted, i.e., consulting a trained Aryuveda physician for correct evalution and treatment. Hopefully, the book will encourage safe exploration of alternative health options.
