6 Down, 46 To Go "Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Stretch: The Unlikely Making of a Yoga Dude is Neal Pollack's latest book. Finding himself in a mid-life crisis after a reviewer's comment about his appearance, Pollack decides to begin practicing yoga. The book follows Pollack's immersion into yoga culture, from his daily practice to retreats to conferences and eventually teaching. I have always considered Neal Pollack a clever and funny writer, but it is his genuine love for yoga in Stretch that makes the book special. Don't be afraid that Pollack's lost his edge, he points out the modality's absurdities, but he does clearly share his infatuation with yoga in this entertaining book.

My next book is Joyce Carol Oates' memoir, A Widow's Story.
