5.0 out of 5 stars Strongly recommended read., 18 Aug 2014
This is an exceptional yoga book. Like all great reads it has been very thoroughly researched by a prolific, tireless and conscientious yogi, Uma Dilsmore-Tuli. I believe this is her fourth book and probably her most impressive and one can only begin to wonder what this leading women's author might turn her pen to next.

5.0 out of 5 stars A camel weeps to music as it reunites with it's calf!, 1 April 2008
Breath-taking cinema. This film's desolate landscape mirrors the harsh nomadic life of a Mongolian herder family successfully etching out a living 2000m above sea level. A richly crafted storyline beautifully juxtaposes a warm and fragile past with a poignantly cold westernised future. It achieves a perfect directorial feast of visual and auditory delights. How they managed to pull this off in such an unrelenting climate and in such a remote place is mind boggling which only serves to intensify this film's charm and sense of mystery.

Any pointless concerns about the apparent impossibilty of filming such events are tenderly dissolved by the camels own incredible tears. You simply couldn't make this up and that's the point. It's real and camels don't follow scripts. Ultimately this magical cinematic gem leaves you spellbound for all the right reasons. It's raw emotional content leads you to it's undeniably spiritual conclusions.

Watch it and let your soul feed on this profoundly lyrical tale of love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fearless outspoken worldclass investigative journalism, 21 April 2007
This was the first Pilger book I read. A friend gave me his copy who insisted I read it immediately. This was completely out of character for him and so I read it and haven't felt the same about the world since.

Pilger relentlessly fills the pages of this remarkable book with assertions that seem incredulous compared to our sanitised media coverage of the world. But what makes this undismissable is that he references almost every painful fact. Respectfully and uniquely treating his readership as peer reviewers of his work rather than accepting automatons.

Pilger's unveiling of some of the world's worst comtemporary injustices is a beacon of truth in the stormy world of political corruption, greed and mass manipulation. This sort of book takes both enormous effort as well as immense courage to publish and demands the attention of a far wider readership.

I have read most of the other reviews on this website and they all seem to have given this book the maximum 5 star rating. If you've come this far I respectively ask you how can you not read it now?
