Don't be misled by the presence of the word "Secrets" in the book's subtitle. What Sachs has accomplished here is no cryptic, esoteric text. Instead, he has encapsulated his years of interest and study into one tight, thorough (and thoroughly enjoyable) presentation of Tibetan healing concepts, and how they can be easily assimilated into our lives. Charts, illustrations, and clear, engaging writing combine here to create a sort of Ayurvedic owner's manual for the body. Yoga, nutrition, sexuality, spirituality, and other factors of the balanced mind, body, and soul are all discussed. Sachs maintains both his reader-friendly voice and clear, uncorrupted mastery of the subject matter throughout.
