Book Review – Yoga Minute

Yoga Minute: got a minute? you can do yoga!

Not going to lie. The size of this book sort of concerned me.  It’s 8 1/2 x 11, and under 70 pages, so I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into.

The concept is that if you have a minute or two here or there that you can still find time to do yoga.

The beginning is basic yoga breathing.  After that we get into simple stretches, standing stretches, twists, and a few more.  It’s all very basic yoga.

On the plus side, each pose comes with full color photographs of normal people doing yoga in regular settings.  Which is nice.  I think part of the reason a lot of us don’t exercise is because we can’t see ourselves as the people they show us doing it.

There are also photos of the author’s dog, which I totally could have done without since they add pretty much nothing to this book.

 

In all, it’s a great intro to yoga.  If you’re already doing it, you probably don’t need this book.  Still, I’ll give it a 4/5.

Book Review – Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book

Doctor Who: The Brilliant Book 2011
Edited By: Clayton Hickman

With this weekend being the 50th anniversary and all of the longest running science fiction show ever, I figured I should review a book about it, but I didn’t have that brilliant idea until like three days ago, and this was the first Doctor Who book I saw laying around.  Thus, it wins the review.

That’s not a bad thing.

The Brilliant Book is meant to be a companion book to the television series.  There are interviews, factoids, and about ten gajillion color pictures.  Plus, there’s an episode guide that includes a quick write-up, the magic moment, deleted scene, Q&A, and more.  The detailed info about creatures and people is awesome, but the cool thing is you also get bonuses about things like how they did the makeup for Silurians or Arthur Darvill ragging on Matt Smith in an interview.

I assume that they did a series of these, and I only wish I could have a bookshelf full of them.

I give the book a 5/5 companions.  :p
