    Story
    (20)

    Ten years ago, Claire Dederer put her back out while breastfeeding her baby daughter. Told to try yoga by everyone from the woman behind the counter at the co-op to the homeless guy on the corner, she signed up for her first class. She fell madly in love. Poser is unlike any other book about yoga you will read—because it is actually a book about life. Witty and heartfelt, sharp and irreverent, Poser is for anyone who has ever tried to stand on their head while keeping both feet on the ground.

    Amanda says: "More mommy memoir than yoga memoir"
    "What a bunch of ..."
    Overall

    I agree with the previous review that this is a mommy memoir. Too much blabbering about upper middle class white mommies trying to justify their excessive behavior.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: If you’ve ever loved a dog - or even patted a dog - this book, told from the perspective of man’s best friend, will tug at your heartstrings...and won’t let go until long after Welch performs the last word. Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master.

    If you could sum up The Art of Racing in the Rain in three words, what would they be?

    Dogs Rule


    What did you like best about this story?

    I have always known that dogs have deep thoughts and this book just reinforces that image.
