3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Krisna Zawaduk on Feb. 20 2010
Format: Paperback
Although I do agree with the fellow who noted that this particular edition of Light on Yoga is poorly bound and an awkward size, the book remains a classic. Try to get it used. Luckily, I have an older paperback copy that has remained mostly bound. The book serves the beginner as well as the adept, with good practices listed in the back. I learned my sanskrit words out of neccessity, to minimize the flipping back and forth from the practices to the plates and instructions. Each time I pick up this grand volume, a new little gem is revealed--so much is contained in this book. The introduction is well-written, explaining the 8 limbs of ashtanga yoga and some of the main philosophical elements from Patanjali's Yoga Sutras. There are also hints and cautions, special practices for ailments and pranayama techniques. An oldie but a goodie. As Iyengar himself one exclaimed, "a good book is better than a bad teacher".

Format: Paperback
It's obviously the classic of yoga books in English, and every student of the practice should have a copy. This is not a particularly useful book for the novice. Personally I find the postures mostly too extreme, but that's Iyengar Yoga. I would exercise caution and work with a qualified teacher, if you're attempting some of these postures or any of the other practices in the book. The book is also pretty poorly organized. If you want to use the suggested sequencing then you will find yourself flipping all over the book to find them. Sticky notes are your friend.

The thing that annoys me about this particular printing of the book is 1) it's a very awkward size (there are other editions that are much easier to transport and hold), 2) the binding is very poor quality and is sure to crack.

I would buy this used (hardcover or stitched binding) or buy the American edition available for much cheaper on the US sight. The book is worth 4 stars, but in light of my other points, I'm giving it 2 stars in total.

Format: Paperback
Best pictures, with best descriptions, week by week 6 years course plan, with gradual increase of difficulty level, so that you don't have to be flexible at all when you start the first week routine, and gradually progress in flexibility. If you'll have the persistence and perseverance then in 6 years you'll become a yoga master, if not, then you'll just improve your health, looks and flexibility to some extent.

B.K.S. Iyengar's book "Light on Yoga" is an amazing reference book in advancing your yoga skills & learning more about your own personal journey.
