Light on Life Book Review:

B.K.S. Iyengar--hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" (BBC) and considered by many to be one of the most important yoga masters--has spent much of his life introducing the modern world to the ancient practice of yoga. Yoga's popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness and the recognition of its health benefits have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. In Light on Life, B.K.S. Iyengar brings readers this new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey. Here Iyengar explores the yogic goal to integrate the different parts of the self (body, emotions, mind, and soul), the role that the yoga postures and breathing techniques play in our search for wholeness, the external and internal obstacles that keep us from progressing along the path, and how yoga can transform our lives and help us to live in harmony with the world around us. For the first time, Iyengar uses stories from his own life, humor, and examples from modern culture to illustrate the profound gifts that yoga offers. Written with the depth of this sage's great wisdom, Light on Life is the culmination of a master's spiritual genius, a treasured companion to his seminal Light on Yoga.

A Life of Light Book Review:

'Only a disciplined person is a free person.' - B.K.S. Iyengar B.K.S. Iyengar's journey began from an inconspicuous village in Karnataka. Losing his father early, he was buffeted by fortune from the home of one relative to another. He was in his teens when he met his guru (and brother-in-law) Krishnamacharya, a renowned yogic scholar, who took him under his wing. The young Iyengar found himself drawn to the teachings, but terrified of the teacher. Despite the tumultuous relationship between guru and shishya, Iyengar eagerly imbibed the intricacies of the art of yoga from his guru. Soon, following his guru's diktat, Iyengar found himself in Pune. It was in this city of strangers, that Iyengar established himself and built his home, and later, his yoga centre. Decades later, 'Iyengar Yoga' as it came to be called, became synonymous with a precision-based asana practise that Iyengar popularized and spread to every continent of the world. Narrated with love and compassion, A Life of Light is the biography of one of the most respected yoga practitioners in contemporary times. His life, spanning almost a century from pre-independence India to India of the twenty-first century, is an incredible testament to the spirit of ancient India thriving in a market economy.

Light and Life Book Review:

There would be no life on Earth without light from the Sun, and life would not be as highly evolved as it is had it not made the best use of light's energy and information for using photosynthesis, biological clocks, and vision. In Light and Life, Michael Gross explores six major aspects of the complex and fascinating interplay between light and life, ranging from the mythical role of the Sun in ancient cultures to the latest advances in scientific research, covering photosynthesis, bioluminescence, vision, perception, and biological clocks. - ;Light, like no other physical phenomenon, is linked in a wide variety of ways with the biological phenomenon of life. We can read this page because light is reflected from it, and carries the information to the retina; the oxygen we breathe was produced by photosynthesis; our sense of alertness relies on our biological clock, set using the cues of light and dark. Michael Gross explores the symbiotic relationship of light and life in this intriguing and entertaining book. Starting with astronomy and our relationship with the Sun and dependence on photosynthesis, he then turns to some of the stranger outcomes of the relationship - bioluminescent creatures, and their evolutionary significance. Finally he looks at the influence of light on biological time-keeping, the focus of much current scientific research. Life would not be here without light, and it would not have evolved as it has done had it not made the best possible use of light's energy and information content for using photosynthesis, biological clocks, and vision. This book explores all these aspects of the fascinating interplay of these two phenomena in a lively manner using many intriguing examples. -

In Paris Book Review:

"If the Internet could create its version of the perfect girl, Jeanne Damas would probably be her. . . . She's nailed that French girl je ne sais quoi." --Vogue A window on the world's most stylish city, with more than 100 full-color photos and profiles of 20 diverse and inspiring Parisian women, by "the coolest, most beautiful French girl in France" (GQ) and a former editor in chief of French Elle "We've always been crazy in love with this city. . . . We love its arrogance, its clumsiness, its simplicity. And especially the women who live here." Two quintessential Parisian women--model and fashion designer Jeanne Damas and journalist Lauren Bastide--shine a spotlight on twenty real-life women of Paris, dispelling the myth that there's only one type of Parisian woman and introducing us to the city that real Parisiennes live in. They're booksellers, singers, writers, activists, and antique dealers; they live in small studios, spacious apartments, or houseboats; their ages range from fourteen to seventy . . . and all embody the effortless chic and insouciant spirit of the legendary Parisian woman. In Paris takes us into these women's lives, telling us about their careers, families, favorite nightlife spots, shopping habits, and beloved books and films. Full-color photos taken by Jeanne herself accompany charming lists of advice on the French art de vivre--from the best places to people-watch with a glass of wine after work to the perfect Parisian playlist to the ten things that a French woman would never, ever post on Instagram. Witty, elegant, and modern, In Paris is an ode to Paris through the eyes of its eternally cool women--for everyone who has ever dreamed of one day living in Paris.

Testimony Of Light Book Review:

When Frances Banks died her friend Helen Greaves was by her side. Then, one evening, some three weeks after Frances' death, Helen sensed her presence. This extraordinary encounter marked the beginning of contact between them from either side of the veil. 'Testimony of Light' is based on the communications that Helen received telepathically from Frances. The scripts have been authenticated by those who knew them both and who were familiar with their individual writing styles. Moving and inspiring, this book is a testament to the enduring power of their friendship and offers an important message to us all - that the death of the body is but a gentle passing to a much freer and fuller life.

Prism Book Review:

In this refreshingly relatable memoir, David K. humanizes the experience of life with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. His many poignant recollections act as a prism, making the invisible visible, and demystifying the reality of having this neuromuscular disease. Among his many experiences: Being a "normal" college student: living away from home, staying in a dorm, learning independence, partying Confronting his early mortality at the age of 13, and being entirely unprepared to deal with it Kissing a girl for the first time at age 19, and realizing that women could indeed be interested in someone with a severe disability Learning he needed a ventilator the hard way: nearly suffocating when out with friends, and rushing home in a panic David does not sugarcoat anything, nor does he spout a lot of empty inspirational rhetoric. All he does is peel back the curtain and show what it's really like to live with a disability.
