Before starting this, I knew nothing about Michael Stone, but this turns out to be a series of essays he's written around the world (nice life!) about his musings on yoga, Buddhism, and faith. Stone says some profound things that I really enjoyed (one that stuck with me is how yoga encourages you to let go of your secrets to live a more honest life, and I've personally seen how much relief occurs when this happens, even with non-yogis), but most of his writing (which he admits) is quite academic and not particularly relatable. I need more practical words about inherently difficult topics to understand them better, so this just wasn't my thing. And also, it was a little all over the place. I think he knows of what he speaks, he just didn't quite speak to me. But I'm giving him a B for effort!
