Klappentext: The Science of yoga draws on more than a century of painstaking research to present the first impartial evaluation of a practice thousands of years old. It celebrates what’s real and shows what’s illusory, describes what’s uplifting and beneficial and what’s flaky and dangerous – and why. Broad unveils a burgeoning global industry that attracts not only curious scientists but true believers and charismatic hustlers. He shatters myths, lays out unexpected benefits, and offers a compelling vision of how the ancient practice can be improved.

William J. Broad has practiced yoga since 1970. A senior writer at The New York Times, he has won every major award in print and television as a science journalist. With Times colleagues, he has twice won the Pulitzer Price, as well as an Emmy and a DuPont. He is the author or coauthor of seven books, including Germs: Biological Weapons and America`s secret war, a number one New York Times bestseller.
