Ayurveda used to be Greek to me until a friend gifted me this book. From the first page onwards, I was totally hooked. The book is truly a great primer to Ayurveda, explaining it in such an easy and convincing manner that even the worst skeptic has to be impressed. I now request for warm water at restaurants and try to wake up 15 minutes earlier than I used to. I eat my salads lightly cooked and don't watch gory movies at bedtime. What a difference these small things have made. I cannot recommend this book enough.

'The beauty of this book is that it is so simple. If you ever thought Ayurveda was hard to understand, you'll be pleasantly surprised once you delve into this book. It works because after reading just the first few chapters, you want to actually try out the ayurvedic routine. And the recipes...yum!!'

I'm one of those who always wanted to know what Ayurveda really, really is but didn't know who to ask. Then I picked up Essential Ayurveda. The greatest thing this book does for you is to tell you how amazingly simple Ayurvedic teaching is. As the author says, "Ayurveda is a verb'. On every page, I found a tip I could follow easily. Besides the recipes, I loved the ideas for playing with herbs and spices. The chapter on living the ayurvedic routine was so inspiring I can't wait to try it out tomorrow morning! Highly recommended for everyone looking to improve their health using simple but timeless ancient wisdom.
