This book will not be helpful to beginners and is certainly not as accessible as a pick it up and read it at the doctor's office kind of magazine article, nor is it a manual with instructions on asanas and breathing.
It is a good read, perhaps even a must read for practitioners with a few years of yoga practice who want to go deeper in exploring the historical origins, beliefs and variations of yoga. It's quite dense and assumes the reader has familiarity with Sanskrit and Hinduism and other Indian philosophical traditions.
Not a lighthearted book for the typical Westerner looking for insight on Asana's or even a typical guru worship treatise expounding on what makes "my guru" so great. This cuts straight to the heart of what Yoga has always and will always be about; mystical union. Bring a dictionary. I know I needed one lol.
This book expands the reader's horizons, understanding of different yoga methods, goals, specialties, concentrations."Must Read" is an understatement.
