From Scientific American

Here, the practice of yoga is directed toward the individual's needs and goals.

Review

Krishnamacharya was one of the greatest yogis of modern times-a master scholar, healer, and spiritual teacher-whose students have changed the face of yoga in the West. Now Krishnamacharya's son, himself a renowned teacher, talks about his father's unique vision of yoga. -- Yoga Journal

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. Be advised that this book contains an incredible bonus - the best, and most understandable translation (actually a translation/interpretation) of the Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali that I have ever read. After years of searching for a translation that I could actually use in my personal practice, I am very grateful to have found this one. This alone is well worth the price of the book. Highly recommended.

I am on my second reading of the book. I got so much out of the first read that I want to go back and read it again. A must read for everybody whether you have a yoga practice or not.
