I found the book to be very informative in explaining what Yoga Nidra is, its benefits and the various phases, or stages of practice. What I found to be greatly lacking is the details on how to practice.
Without the CD, (I can only assume that directions are given on the CD), I could certainly understand the goals of each stage of practice but had no guidance as to how to go about it.
It might be a good idea to provide a download link, to the audio file, for those of us buying the Kindle version of this book.

The CD is very well produced and Richard Miller's voice and pacing are quite good. His instructions are clear, without talking too much. Some meditation CDs are very wordy to the point of distraction, but this one isn't like that.
However, the book that comes with the CD is in desperate need of an editor. I'm a yoga teacher and generally used to reading flowery material, but this one goes over the top. I found myself reading and rereading sentences trying to cut through all the adjectives to get to the meaning. I think Richard Miller's points are often lost in his overly descriptive text. A good editor would do this book a great deal of service.
I don't think you necessarily need the book to get something from the CD. However, it is useful to understand what the meditation is all about b/c it isn't the same as other forms. It's a shame that his text makes the practice seem overly involved.Read more ›
Yoga Nidra is an easy practice to learn and is bloody effective. I suffered from serious anxiety for many, many years not knowing that I had a problem. I thought that everyone lived like this. I finally sought help from a psychiatrist who identified my problem as PTSD and prescribed Xanax which seemed to work, but I hated depending on chemicals.
Years later, I saw a psychologist who suggested Yoga Nidra and recommended Richard Miller's book. One day I realised that I hadn't used Xanax for over two years. And I still don't!
I word of warning. Don't think that Yoga Nidra will work without you putting in the effort to practice and don't expect instant results. It takes determination and thirty five minutes a day. That isn't a lot of time to devote to a practice that WILL help!
