5.0 out of 5 stars He is a gifted teacher and has already produced some excellent DVDs on yoga and anatomy and hands-on adjustments, 4 Nov 2014
I've been a yoga teacher for 15 years and encountered David while undertaking additional training in Ashtanga Yoga. He is a gifted teacher and has already produced some excellent DVDs on yoga and anatomy and hands-on adjustments. This book does an excellent job of clearly explaining how the body works, while always relating the theory to practice on the mat. Although there is a good deal about muscles and joints, David's understanding comes from a holistic view of the body. As he makes clear throughout, a clear understanding is needed of the role of connective tissue and the inter-relatedness of every aspect of movement in the body. Among the best yoga and anatomy books on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timely book for those who care about the environment, 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everything we do and have is based on Nature - our lives, our existence and our economies. The environmental movement has evolved beyond simply protesting about the degradation of the natural environment. Now people like Tony Juniper are showing how utterly dependent we are on finely balanced natural systems and how removing parts of the whole can have disastrous consequences. Taking the Monty Python joke - What Have the Romans Ever Done for Us? - and replacing it with What has Nature Ever Done for Us?, Tony Juniper tells compelling stories about how the environment supports economic and social life without many of us realising it. The book is entertaining, informative and easy to read, with a wealth of facts to counter the naysayers who are content to see Nature continue to be ravaged and exploited for short-term gain. This is a wake-up call for us all, and a rollicking good read.
