Heya, fellow book nerds-slash-philosophy-wonks:
Check out this excellent round-up of yoga philosophy books from Yoga Journal. I've had several folks ask me lately where to start with yoga philosophy. Here's a great resource. Beyond these, I always, always recommend anything by Steve Ross or Michael Stone. You can't go wrong with those two. Now get in there.
A Good Read (YJ)
