I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. Most chapters are well written, with easy to understand language and good examples throughout the book. The contents matched the chapter title and book cover. The author devotes a whole chapter explaining different types of yoga and how they benefits us. More information about the author Sanjay Goel is needed in the book; his background and a picture of him would have helped me understand more about him as a person. His beliefs, and does he himself practice what he preaches? The author tells us throughout the book how to achieve peace and bliss, the ultimate purpose of human existence. It explains that the human mind is always disturbed, restless and wandering in the past, present and future. Due to lack of understanding, there is the false belief that these materialistic objects would give us more satisfaction and happiness. That materialism causes us to feel empty and our desire increases, yet we feel no satisfaction. Only the person who understands that there is nothing to achieve or lose in this world, can understand that life & death, happiness & sorrow, gain & loss, good & evil and so on, shall always be equal to each other; only they can become a Yogi and obtain the state of peace and harmony. Deep spirituality, inner peace, is within your reach after reading this book. This book does push hidden boundaries; you will find that you will look differently at the relationship between yourself and the world around you. That happiness is not just a dream, it can be achieved within your reach.
