I am a high school student and had to read this book for my research project. I enjoyed reading only parts of the book because a lot of it was very wordy and confusing. There were unnecessary parts in the book talking about health, but never mentioned why it helped with yoga or even relating to it. I did find a lot of the information I needed on this book though, for example I did learn a lot about the philosophy and the different forms of Yoga. I did not like how I did not find much history or the culture involved with Yoga. The pictures and explanations with the pictures helped me also. I also thought it was good that in the back of the book there was a glossary for words that were difficult to understand, but not everything was greatly explained. I do recommend this book, but for advanced readers. Even though this book leaves out information, it will interest you in certain parts. My favorite part is about reincarnation and karma. This book made me want to learn more about Yoga, but I would try reading a book that I can understand and will not give me confusing details.
