Review: The Yoga of Max's Discontent

The Yoga of Max's Discontent The Yoga of Max's Discontent by Karan Bajaj
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A book about spiritual awakening and self discovery that reads so smoothly you don't realize you've been turning page after page for the last 3 hours.

Max Pzoras has eveything he ever wanted: an education, a good job, wealth and comfort. But when his mother dies, he feels lost and alone. He then embarks on a trip to India on a quest to "find himself" (I know it sounds pedestrian, but there's much more to it)

Looking for a spiritual teacher he's heard about, he goes from the cold North to the hot and droughty south, where he will work hard, physically and spiritually.

I'm always a bit amused when people flee their lives in order to "find themselves", but even if Max starts as an amateur, not knowing exactly what he wants or needs, the road to finding it is incredible. Hard and lonely, but incredible none the less.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
