Great book, written in language easy to understand and apply in our western culture. I have been following the winter program for my body type – Vata – and it has proved very effective. The routines are not complicated or time consuming, very manageable. I also bought a copy for my daughter who has taken several workshops with Mahduri Phillips & she thought it was a wonderful book. In a nutshell I found that the book follows the KISS principle while staying true to the ayurveda philosophy,
