Don't let the covers fool you. These are the most down-to-earth books about yoga that I've ever come across. Books about yoga and meditation usually bore me to tears. But these are incredibly inspiring – in part because you can actually read them, more like a novel than a text book.
So a cool thing happened while I was at Kripalu: I saw the author, Stephen Cope, walking down the hall! I was (weirdly) a teensy bit starstruck. That's how much I love these books. If you have even the tiniest interest in the yogic perspective you gotta check these out. I'd offer to sell you my copy used, but I'm going to hang onto it to reread instead :-)
