    I got this book after having bought several of Vasant Lad’s other books (home remedies and cook book) and I am even more of a fan of the way he writes. His style is approachable but still has some good technical information. The book looks at the pulse, food, yoga, the science of Ayurveda and lifestyle as well as other things. It is a great starter and a foundation before going into more depth. Definitely worth picking up and reading.

    It’s practically the best introduction one can have in the science of Ayurveda. It gives you an overall explanation of all the fields and helps you find your own constitution as well!

    Ayurveda is quite a complex concept to grasp for Western people as so many parameters have to be taken into consideration. Compliments to Dr. Vasant Lad who has really made a great effort to make it “easier” to understand. Finally a book on Ayurveda that one wants to finish and really read until the end. I definitively enjoyed it and will highly recommend it.
