I bought this book hoping that I could get started with yoga on my own. As a beginner's introduction to yoga, it is rather unsuccessful in that it uses terminology without defining it first and has photographic illustrations that do not show the key points of the yoga positions as clearly as the drawings in "Yoga for Dummies."
The author clearly is knowledgeable and passionate about his subject, but I don't think that these attributes serve him particularly well in an introductory text of this type.

I think the book, Yoga for Men, is a great value in terms of content, modest cost, and considering it also includes an audio CD. Not bad!!! The focus is on men, but many of the concepts are applicable to women as well. This book is not only beneficial to men but to all the women who love them. Recommended as gifts from women who have husbands, partners, fathers, brothers, sons and male friends.

I was never a yoga kind of guy, but after reading this book I actually had the courage to go to a class. I'm still going and loving it. Yoga For Men does a great job of making yoga seem less of scary 60's hippie thing and more just a great way to stay in shape, mentally as well as physically. I know many people have hang ups about yoga, especially men, so this book was sorely needed. It's a great value too, fully illustrated and with a companion CD included.

I think this author had good intentions--trying to title yoga postures with names that suggest the business world, and I guess in his opinion, that's where the men are who need to learn basic yoga. But, there are SO many tons of other books out there that do such a better job of introducing yoga to newbies. Maybe the problem seems to be that men are shy of yoga so they need an apparently macho introduction, but guys, go with the tried and true titles out there, or DVDs from Rodney Yee, Rod Striker, etc. The photos are poor, the model (who may be the author) is NOT a good example (OMG his handstand is completely weird) there are misspellings and misinformation. Don't worry about whether you're doing macho yoga--any old yoga is great, whether the teacher is female or male--just do some research and spend your money on a really good title--even Light on Yoga by Iyengar.

I wasn't pleased when my wife gave me this book for Valentine's day. My response was, 'You couldn't find a sports book?'. Very mature. I have basically used the CD to this book everyday for 10 years. It sets the pace and tone extremely well. When I do my morning session without the CD, I have a tendency to rush through it.
No yoga book is perfect, but this was perfect for me. I thank my wife for one of the best gifts I've ever received.

I bought this book thinking that it would give me more yoga poses to work on. I have to say that the poses in the book are basic at most and that I learned more yoga in high school then in this book. I like yoga because it makes me more relaxed. I was hoping the book would help with more issues that men have with yoga like flexibility and relaxation in the upper shoulders, back, and the groin area. These areas are typical for men to carry a lot of tension and stress. I did give it a three star because of the meditation sections. But this book didn't differ from a regular yoga book so I was disappointed.
