“Like his other books, Light on Life is rich in yoga philosophy and methodology. But unlike his previous writings, this new book is full of autobiographical anecdotes. . . . [A] formidable will percolates through Light on Life.” —The New York Times
“Rather than present the yoga postures as he did in Light on Yoga, Mr. Iyengar reveals in Light on Life the ‘heart of yoga' that he personally discovered through more than 70 years of disciplined, daily practice . . . [including] the precise ways that yoga can transform our lives and help us live in harmony with the world around us.” —Yoga Journal

My personal experience with Iyengar teachers is simple: you will not get hurt. I believe that is behind the focus on technique and alignment. I have not seen this in other popular schools of yoga.
No one living has Mr. Iyengar's street cred, but two other writers I have read seem to have a similar focus:
Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness
Bringing Yoga to Life
