Publisher's Summary

Downward Dog tells the tale of a handsome Bad Boy who becomes a yoga instructor while trying to redeem his womanizing ways and win the forgiveness of the only woman he’s ever really loved. Down on his luck, thanks to a failed nightlife venture, which fell apart because of his womanizing ways, our hero’s stuck with massive debt and broken dreams. His only safe haven is the yoga world, and when his well-connected best buddy launches his yoga career among New York City's elite, our working-class hero becomes a guru to society’s top one percent, a wolf let loose amongst a flock of comely sheep.

Chick lit for guys

Any additional comments?

At first I hated the main character of this book and had a hard time listening. Then I realized there was a sort of self-depracating humor about the character that becomes more apparent as the book progresses, that the whole story is making fun of what a Yoga Teacher typically represents -- a lot of contradictions at the very least. Fun to have a male protagonist who is somewhat exploited. In the end, it was an enjoyable, funny, and somewhat illuminating book.

An auditory page-turner... or chapter-turner?

I seldom listen to fiction. This one caught my attention and I'm glad it did. It's one of those books you can't put down.

It's funny too:)
