4.0 out of 5 stars the feeling of being in love, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Few novels that set out to portray the feeling of being in love work for me. This one does, along with The Waterfall by Margaret Drabble, in a sweet, calm yet viscerally penetrating way. It reminds me, warns me and keeps me in line, usually smiling.

5.0 out of 5 stars yoga practice in the context of the known, the surmised and the lived, 20 Sept. 2012
It's a good year when you find a book that answers the questions you never found the right person to ask - subjective questions with largely objective answers - presented as a logical thought process yet without fear of the intrusion of the illogical.

There's a lovely bit on the rectus capitus anterior where the writing flexes from science to sensing and ultimately, as throughout the book, to the prime message of 'enquiry'.

Blackaby has unpicked movement without fracturing it and teaches intelligent practice in the context of the known, the surmised and the lived, suggesting an approach to yoga that is rational, disciplined and fulsomely human and humane.
