Whether you practice Iyenger style yoga or not (I practice Ashtanga,) I think this book is a must read for any person on the yogic or spiritual path: It has a wealth of information about the whole journey, with comments about his personal journey, ups and downs, and benefits of the eight-limbs of yoga. This is one of the first books I've come across that explains it very well and also gives insight of when and how to do certain things. And beyond that, it's also very well written - so articulate and ever-engaging. I have truly gained a lot of respect for Mr. Iyenger after reading this book. Thank you for writing it and letting the world into your life, Mr. Iyenger.
Without a doubt, every single page of this book is a gem. It's written with such simplicity and clarity that you see yourself in every page.
