‘Thank goodness for Claire Dederer, who has written the book we all need: the long-awaited funny, smart, clear-headed, thoughtful, truthful, and inspiring yoga memoir. To simplify my praise: I absolutely loved this book'

'An engaging, snappy writer...her book is a pleasure'
‘Whip-smart ... How yoga became an obsession, gave her insight she didn't know she lacked, and even began to threaten her happy marriage, she relates with wry humour and honesty'
