5.0 out of 5 stars The simplicity of genius
This is the most elegantly lucid introduction to the philosophy of yoga that I have ever read. The way Besant simplifies very profound issues is, to me, a work of genius. If you like exceptional clarity I recommend this work. Besant manages to discuss all the most important issues in life in this short book.
And if you are interested in theosophy, read this first...

3.0 out of 5 stars My Fault - Wrong choice
I'm sure it's a very good book but it's heavy going, made the wrong choice and gave up on it.

And if you are interested in theosophy, read this first. It will save you much time by making other theosophical authors more understandable.

I suppose it just wasn't what I was expecting. I tried to read it seriously but found it really hard going. Sorry!

Very Informative in every way, just wish I had started years ago.

I have arthritis ( all over ) and although I am only a third of the way through the book I do get relief.

It's an ok read and gives some good basics, but I think I'll stick to the DVD versions to show me exactly how to properly!

So glad this was free on Kindle. Because if I'd have paid for this I'd be screwing. It's not a introduction to practical Yoga poses. It's just a load of hippy unscientific twaddle about oneness and the self and the universe.
