Well explained in simple english, This is a good first book on Pathajali Sutras
One suggestion to the publisher, the font is too small to read for people with reading glasses. It strains the eyes too much and spoils the pleasure of reading.
This book is one of best expositions of Patanjali's yoga sutras. The problem is with the Kindle version. The Sanskrit script is too small. Also, the sanskrit font size does not increase with the English font. I request that this problem be corrected at the earliest as currently the Sanskrit script is quite unreadable.
Thank you guruvu garu, for teaching us simplified methods and discussing yoga for various personal and health challenges in detail, and, for providing solutions for them through yoga. It is real light.

I am a little unimpressed with the packaging though on Amazon's part. I was expecting the typical cardboard book box that is easily recycled and instead got a plastic bubble wrap package which can not be. I know people will say I can save it to reuse, but haven't managed that in the past as I have a drawer full of them already. Also the bubble wrap didn't protect it anyway, as there is damage to the spine due to impact of hitting the floor after being pushed through letter box.
Moan over. Buy the book if you're interested in deepening your understanding of the philosophy and teachings behind yoga. There is so much more to it than being flexible and making "shapes".
