This is a great addition to my regular Yoga practice. It concentrates on problems that I have had and could not solve with other means. The book was much delayed and I almost gave up but I'm glad I didn't. The positions in the book have been a wonderful addition to my regular proactive and I have found relief from pain. The Fish Pose, Squats and the Windshield Wiper has been especially helpful and the tips area great. Mood and attitude is everything and this little book is a big help in changing a persons emotional attitude. The positions concentrate effort to relax, breathe and focus on just the right areas to relieve lower hormone levels. The tips are great to ease into some of the more difficult postures as well. I recommend this book highly for anyone looking for additional help with midlife issues and anyone who needs additional help doing Yoga on their own.The Book is well written and laid out in an easy to understand format. Being small, it is tottable to class, or in your bag. Anything I have needed to find was easy to locate. Also I went through the book and did all the postures which let me know the ones I have not done on a regular basis. Some of the practice will work better than other parts, and of course it takes time for this to show up in real changes, nevertheless I can tell that Dr. Turske knows what works generally and properly.
Having read my first Sidney Sheldon, 'Bloodline', back in the late 1970's, I was happy to have the opportunity to read this book. Tilly follows all of the cues of the famous writer, keeping it timely. I loved the reference to "Wall Street", the recent market crashes, and Burnie Madoff. Excellent read.
