So this book definitely does have some different poses then the last yoga bible she did, which is something important to know if you have the first and wondering if you really want the second.
I purchased the kindle version of this because I really struggled with keeping the Yoga Bible Classic open when I was trying to do poses, and I thought the kindle version might help. So the answer to that is yes and no. No in that less information appears on a page then probably would in the text book, so for the individual exercise explanations, the pictures are more spread out. But there is a putting it all together section at the end of each main subsection that shows each of the exercises in picture form only, which is what I prefer to look at after I've read the more detailed description of how to do something, and it very nice to have a format to view that which doesn't require props to keep the book open. And I like that this is well linked in the kindle format.
Now for me, personally, this book got a bit more philosophical then the last one, and there were points where I found myself disagreeing. That's the problem with philosophies and personal beliefs...someone can always argue with you. Like when she said that “when you exist in the present so much stress just falls away.” Holy cow, I've lived through some amazingly stressful events in the past 5 years, and I can tell you that from my perspective, sometimes the present can be overrated and I definitely don't want to think about it consciously. I've read some of the most inane, mindless things known to man just because I needed to keep my mind from thinking about my current circumstances for long enough to be able to get back in the ring and go another round.
Or when she opines that everyone is perfect as they are. For me, I love me and I am a very confident woman these days. But I will also be the first person to tell you, I'm far from perfect and some times I can just be a royal stinker. I know this about me, I accept this about me, and it's the journey each and every day to try and be less of a stinker in some way that gives my life such a rich texture of meaning and purpose.
As a practitioner, I felt like the philosophy parts detracted from it for me personally, but they aren't harmful, so I'm not taking away any stars for it. And especially because that is opinion based...some readers may find great benefit in that section. For me personally, the yoga explanations seem solid to me, and that's really what mattered most.
What I would have loved to see in this book and every other yoga book I've ever read is a pronunciation guide for some of the terms uses. She uses westernized names for the poses, so I'm not taking stars off of it, because the terms in question appeared in the introduction as she was discussing yoga philosophies. I would still like to be able to pronounce them without having to look them up on line, but since I don't have to try and file a pose in my memory based on a word I'm not sure how to pronounce, I'm letting that one pass. But just as a recommendation for future books, because I know this author has written a few yoga books, as this is now the third one of hers I own…
Overall, I really enjoy her yoga books more than any of the other authors on the subject I have read, and this book is no exception.
