Overview

Thousands of years ago, philosophers and scientists in ancient India devised a system called Ayurveda, or “the science of life,” which explains the nature of everything in the universe. Now, in What’s Your Dosha, Baby?, author Lisa Marie Coffey applies this ancient wisdom to modern-day relationships, offering readers an exciting new way to measure their compatibility with lovers, friends, co-workers, and family, and arming them with the insight they need to make all their relationships work. After determining their personal dosha—one of three personality types based on physical features and personality traits—readers can learn how their dosha interacts with the others, their physical and emotional communication styles, instinctual preferences regarding food, travel, lifestyle, and work, and much more. Perfect for those looking to end the squabbling with their mate, resolve a conflict with their boss, or get the man or woman of their dreams to commit, What’s Your Dosha, Baby? will help readers find true happiness and achieve great success in life, love, and relationships.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Coffey, a lifestyle and relationship expert, takes a fun and stimulating look at Hindu Ayurvedics, a "science of life" designed to increase productivity and creativity as well as identify love matches. Taking a mainstream, upbeat approach that will help Americanize this unfamiliar subject, Coffey describes three personality types (doshas)-Vata, Pitta, and Kapha-which are made up of different combinations of the five basic elements (i.e., air, space, fire, water, and earth). Everyone has one dominant dosha, but Coffey asserts that "all three doshas express themselves in some way for everyone." Although initially reminiscent of "typing" books like Tom Maddron's Living Your Colors: Practical Wisdom for Life, Love, Work, and Play, this book doesn't waffle as much. Nine chapters explore the basics of each combination (e.g., Vata man and Pitta woman), while the rest of the text addresses topics like parenting, relationships, and even diet. Recommended for larger public libraries. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
