did not like it
Recommended to Brenda by: it was sent by the publisher for review
Recommended for: no one!
Read in January, 2006

This book was a pure disappointment! The authors seem to disregard the original text and come up with their own Buddhism-inspired interpretations, thus failing to do justice to the Yoga-Sutra, which clearly is a Hindu scripture.
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

Kevin Brenda is spot-on with this review. I question the motivation of the author delving into the Yoga Sutras without the expertise to understand it or the care to be honest about its message.
