This review is from: Warrior Pose: How Yoga (Literally) Saved My Life (NONE) (Kindle Edition)
From the opening pages, it's easy to understand why Brad Willis lasted as long as he did in the television journalism world and why that same blunt, petal-to-the-metal approach landed him on his (broken) back incapacitated, overburdened, and disheartened. Our television-facinated culture loves action, the dramatic story, and the brash headss-on reporting energy that was Brad's signature. But what does a caring, curious man do with all that witnessed pain? Seemingly, stuff it, drink and drug it away, and run, run, run. And oh dear, it is a long fall down and an even longer rise back to health.

Mr Willis spends much of the book describing how lonely and angry he was, and how pain, fear, and denial kept him there. I know the title says "How Yoga (Literally) Saved My Life...but I think it was love that saved him. He finds, through yoga, a way to love himself and let go of all that he'd carried around in that emotional flak jacket for years. I wish him continued good health and happiness.
