The book consists of four parts:
Part One: The Path consists of
* The Material World and
* Setting Your Intention.
Part Two: The Foundation consists of
* The Practice of Nonviolence (kindness toward ourselves and others),
* The Practice of Detachment (Allowing what nature intends for us), and
* Letting Go of Excess (Knowing when enough is enough).
Part Three: Expression consists of
* Posture Practice and the Pursuit of Inner Beauty,
* The Breath,
* Living the Ayurveda Way, and
* Practices for Building Awareness.
Part Four: Union describes
* how to put is all into practice - with clear examples showing how the above theory and postures and holistic way of healing could be made part of life, followed by an Appendix of case-study examples.
The book is succinct and well-written. It reads like a friendly conversation, but it is still substantial and makes you introspect. The exercises are described in an audience-friendly manner and with corresponding photographs. There are well-drawn examples to accompany each new aspect of the pose/breathing/following the foundational practices. Cameron has sprinkled the book with personal anecdotes as well as his sense of humor and has presented the book in a humble manner that makes it even more accessible for anyone.
My personal experience with the book: From just following the sections on The Practice of Nonviolence (kindness toward ourselves and others) and The Practice of Detachment (Allowing what nature intends for us) alone - neither are what they seem at first and have much wider reach than just what goes into your diet, etc., I have achieved transformations which have brought a greater degree of peace and grace in my life.
