This funny, sad, super-honest, all-true story of Chelsea Handler’s year of self-discovery features a nerdily brilliant psychiatrist, a shaman, four Chow Chows, some well-placed security cameras, various family members (living and departed), friends, assistants, and a lot of edibles.

Author Benjamin Lorr wandered into a yoga studio - and fell down a rabbit hole. Hell-Bent explores a fascinating, often surreal world at the extremes of American yoga. Benjamin Lorr walked into his first yoga studio on a whim, overweight and curious, and quickly found the yoga reinventing his life. He was studying Bikram Yoga (or "hot yoga") when a run-in with a master and competitive yoga champion led him into an obsessive subculture - a group of yogis for whom eight hours of practice a day in 110-degree heat was just the beginning. So begins a journey.

I’m a yoga teacher and I’m booked on an Ana Forrest workshop in a few weeks so I thought I better do some research as our styles are polar opposite to each other. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book but it has invigorated and inspired me to continue to follow and teach my path my style of Zen yoga, as a teacher I have a mixture of beliefs and faith I don’t fully subscribe to any one school of yoga and I’m ok with that I’m authentic to me but it’s awesome to know that I’m not the only one in this situation. Great book great narration eye opening and honest which is refreshing.

The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease.
