"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

I love yoga before bed because you get your heart rate up with out a sweet and it relaxes you. This book I can pick what ones will work best for the crazy hours I work.
As a person of faith in God an Christ, it's easy to skip the part you feel are to far out side your own believes, this book is open to any believes, so you can make it what you believe in. Now really didn't read any of that, it just over all yoga is about you an what makes you feel good and feel healthier. That why it about what you believe.
The picture are wonderful, I love that there was one guy. It's nice because some men hurt at work an I can show them this book to help them.
I'm some what a Tom boy, or just closed off from everyone. I found that yoga help keep me at peace with the work man side, an out side of work the really me who's feminine.
This book definitely has the best pictures in the realm of yoga books, with excellent descriptions on how to get to the positions depicted, a tid-bit sorely missing in many others.
The sequences are well thought out and flow easily. Some information missing on how long to hold the positions and the author seems a bit emphatic on a very rapid sequence which I would not recommend for beginners. In fact if I were to have one criticism that would be it: little information for stark beginners with fairly advanced poses directed by practiced yoga pros. I would love to see a book that really addresses the "never-have-touched-my-toes-before" crowd, at least in a little tiny section.
The book is written in friendly and popular style, which I welcome not being a purist of the yoga practice but I consider this a plus not a minus. After all the object is to reach everyone and make them move, right? Right.
Now for my only real beef with the book, aside from the fact that turning pages back and forth made the book fall apart in about five uses (no fault of the author but, really, a yoga book that is not flexible enough to lay flat? ah the irony!). But I digress, the only thing I did not care for was the scattered pop-nutrition that was obviously well meant but neither complete nor researched enough to belong in an otherwise excellent publication. I would suggest either get a nutrition expert to chime in on "cleansing" practices and such things or eliminate all together. Also the recommendation of not drinking water at all before and during yoga practice is perhaps fine for the practiced yoga enthusiast but not for beginners. Yoga can be quite strenuous for the rank beginner and they need to drink when the body says drink.
Overall an excellent book, best pictures in the business, excellent sequencing, perfect explanations written for those that seek the ONE book on popular yoga practice.
I would definitely recommend this book.
I don't get into the "routines" really, I just go through the poses. This book is nice in that it classifies your poses by, for example, "Standing Poses" "Seated Poses" etc. Well done book, overall.
It starts with an introduction of what yoga means and how it all started, while providing you with a some insight on some terms and story behind it all.
Then is has a 7 day meal plan for a detox with recipes! Take not that this part is optional, you don't need to do this detox or any type of diet while trying these yoga moves, it's just a sample menu if you want to.
It has a lot o fun poses that are photograph really well and explain through-fully. This book also has a lot of 15 minute routines for any type of issue you have (even a broken heart).
It's a really good book, even if you aren't new to the yoga world, this book would be a really good addition to your collection. It's one of my favorite yoga books for sure!
