"In this compelling work of investigative journalism, William Broad exposes the "scientific" claims made about yoga--from its much-vaunted healing powers to yogasms--to scientific scrutiny. "The Science of Yoga" is a wonderful read that any yoga practitioner thirsting for authenticity should study carefully before suiting up."--David Gordon White, author of "Kiss of the Yogini"
