I expected a book about yoga and i got a tome on pschology. In a nutshell, a bore.

The Author promises a lot in terms of both Yoga and self discovery but fails to deliver either. Although he approaches the subject from a psychospiritual basis, he relies on anecdotal stories from a 1970's style commune to attempt to make his points. I found the anecdotes to be trivial or boring. If you wish to explore Yoga through the eyes of a therapist you'd be better served by Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy: A Bridge from Body to Soul by Michael Lee. Mr. Cope also fails to address fully the nature of Kundalini Yoga (the source of his guru's lineage), which is covered far better in, Kundalini Yoga : The Flow of Eternal Power by Shakti Parwha Kaur Khalsa or Kundalini Yoga for the West : A Foundation for Character Building Courage and Awareness by Swami Sivananda Radha. Finally, if one really wants to develop an understanding of Yoga the reader would benefit from Beyond Power Yoga : 8 Levels of Practice for Body and Soul by Beryl Bender Birch or Yoga : The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness by Erich Schiffmann. All in all a disappointment, as the promising components failed to be crafted into an integrated whole.
