I like that there is a book that cuts through all the bullshit and tells exactly what claims about yoga pass scientific muster, but the useful information contained in this book wouldn't fill more than 20 pages. There is a whole lot of filler.

More of Josh's books…
“A lot of the people who read a bestselling novel, for example, do not read much other fiction. By contrast, the audience for an obscure novel is largely composed of people who read a lot. That means the least popular books are judged by people who have the highest standards, while the most popular are judged by people who literally do not know any better. An American who read just one book this year was disproportionately likely to have read ‘The Lost Symbol’, by Dan Brown. He almost certainly liked it.”
The Economist

“Books educate people and educated people ask awkward questions of those who govern them. The educated, in short, are considered ungovernable. Better to keep people ignorant of the past and to concentrate their minds on the utopia that lies ahead.”
The Economist
