Irresponsible Pseuodoscience

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Those with under twenty pounds to lose who already enjoy yoga may appreciate this book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Another meditative or yoga book.

Would you be willing to try another one of E. Jonathan Kessler’s performances?


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Yoga Poses for Weight Loss?

Those where the referenced scientific material was ambiguous or blatantly skewed to blur the causality lines would be required to be re-written or cut entirely.

Any additional comments?

There are many good points made in this book that reference true science. However, the presentation of most of the facts is in such a manner as to insinuate wrong, backward or outdated causality. Much of the theoretical biological and health science regarding weight loss that is referenced has been shown in recent studies to be inaccurate in the aggregate. It is irresponsible for this book to be presented to audiences that may not know the difference between good science presentation and poor science presentation.
