Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Ever insightful and consistently entertaining, this book captures our imagination at a steady pace. It's a carefully woven tale about personal experience, at the same time as remarkable as an integrated circuit - all the while being as matter of fact as the paper its printed on. The observations are astute in their clarity, and impart subtle lessons from a contemporary yogic voice.
