Although I haven't read too many books on the subject of yoga, I have a feeling this account is rather unique. As a Westerner and psychologist, Stephen Cope helps like-minded people understand the history, exploration, and integration of yoga in a modern world. His personal accounts aren't relegated to the enlightened, and I rather enjoyed the analyzations of his interpersonal relationships. While this approach could have veered too far from the subject matter, I found he kept my interest and helped me apply yogic philosophy to my own life. All in all, I'd recommend this book to anyone already interested in yoga, though it may not be suited for everyone else.
