Unlike books on yoga that provide instruction on technique, Going Om is a unique collection of personal narratives from celebrated authors. This anthology of original material values the quality of writing over the authors' flexibility. Ira Sukrungruang shares his heartbreaking struggle as a 375-pound yoga student discovering self-worth on his mat; Gloria Munoz explores the practice of stillness with lyrical elegance in the midst of her busy mind; Neal Pollack's signature sarcasm leads to surprising turns at yoga class with his dad; Elizabeth Kadetsky uses yogic wisdom while coping with her mother's devastating Alzheimer's.

a couple of good stories, but overall just eh
I think I was hoping for something a little more enlightening or uplifting, but most of these stories had little to do with yoga. A couple were outright annoying in the author's entitlement and self absorption. And a couple were actually enjoyable. Overall I wouldn't recommend the book, there are just too many good books out there to waste time and money on a mediocre one.

no real lesson or relevance behind the book
Would you try another book from Melissa Carroll (editor) and/or the narrators?
Any additional comments?
this is merely a series of short stories and leaves no end feeling of anything, I don't see the overall point to the book , its merely peoples different experiences of yoga and not really anything substantially engaging or enlightening
