Iyengar has been hailed as "the Michelangelo of yoga" (BBC) and is considered by many to be the most important living yoga master. Yoga’s popularity is soaring, but its widespread acceptance as an exercise for physical fitness have not been matched by an understanding of the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual development that the yogic tradition can also offer. Here, Iyengar brings readers a new and more complete understanding of the yogic journey.

Book Cover Image: Title: Don Juan, Author: Lord Byron Buy It Don Juan
Lord Byron
Byron's exuberant masterpiece tells of the adventures of Don Juan, beginning with his illicit love affair at the age of sixteen in his native Spain and his subsequent exile to Italy. Following a dramatic shipwreck, his exploits take him to Greece, where he is sold as a slave, and to Russia, where he becomes a favorite of the Empress Catherine who sends him on to England. Written in ottava rima stanza form, Byron's Don Juan blends high drama with earthy humor, outrageous satire of his contemporaries, and sharp mockery of Western societies.

Book Cover Image: Title: Casanova in Bohemia, Author: Andrei Codrescu Buy It Casanova in Bohemia
Andrei Codrescu
As the old adventurer relives his life while writing his memoirs in a provincial Bohemian castle at the end of the eighteenth century, Casanova continues to delight in the maidservants, reacts with intellectual vigor to the unfolding of the French Revolution, and collaborates with Mozart on Don Giovanni. At once a libertine, a defender of women, a revolutionary, and a visionary, Casanova is now finally given due credit for his writings, his philosophies, and, of course, for his amorous magic.

Book Cover Image: Title: Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Author: Pierre Choderlos de Laclos Buy It Les Liaisons Dangereuses
Pierre Choderlos de Laclos
Together, the Vicomte de Valmont and the Marquise de Merteuil, two supremely bored French aristocrats, concoct a wildly wicked wager: If Valmont can successfully seduce the virtuous wife of a government official and an innocent former convent schoolgirl, then Madame Merteuil will sleep with him again. Can he do both? First published in 1782, this book both scandalized and titillated the aristocracy it was aimed against, who publicly denounced it and privately devoured it.

Book Cover Image: Title: Zorro, Author: Isabel Allende Buy It Zorro
Isabel Allende
Allende displays her affection for the masked legend in this novelistic meditation on his roots -- from his initiation into the fencing and wisdom traditions of his parents, as he witnesses the brutality of the colonial regime, to his devotion to the cause of the poor and the powerless. Allende's Zorro portrays its lead character as a man becoming a hero.

Book Cover Image: Title: The History of Love, Author: Nicole Krauss Buy It The History of Love
Nicole Krauss
Leo Gursky, a retired locksmith, does his best to get by. Sixty years earlier, before he fled Poland for New York, he met Alma, fell in love, and named a character in a book after her. Unbeknownst to Leo, the book survived, and now it provides a link to the son he's never known. How this long-lost book reappears and connects their lives is only one of the small miracles in this inventive, and surprising novel about rediscovered love.
