From Publishers Weekly
The third installment in Bell Tower's attractively packaged Sacred Teachings series, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali offers a modern translation of a 2,300-year-old Indian meditation text. Translator Alistair Shearer gives a somewhat ethereal introduction ("Yoga is the transformation into the Divine, and of the Divine into everything") that is too long-winded at 80-odd pages. Still, the sutras are beautifully rendered.

I almost gave the book 4 stars thinking of all the typographical errors that could have been attended to by those who scanned and rendered the book to Kindle format. But I'd be sadden to despair if by doing so anyone would be turned away from reading this penetrating interpretation by Charles Johnston, a British Sanskrit scholar in the civil service during Mohandas Gandhi's India.
In a later addition to this review, I will endeavor to point out the most egregious typographical errors found in the book, that all may be better served by its purposeful existence. I found an old hardcover edition that I believe will shed light on some the puzzling errors contained in the Kindle edition.
