Melissa Carroll discusses and signs Going Om: Real-Life Stories on and Off the Yoga Mat

With candid, witty, and compelling experiences of yoga from renowned memoirists, including Cheryl Strayed (Wild), Claire Dederer (Poser: My Life in 23 Yoga Poses), Dinty W. Moore (The Accidental Buddhist), Neal Pollack (Stretch: The Making of a Yoga Dude) and many others, Going Om shares a range of observations about this popular practice. Unlike books on yoga that provide instruction on technique, Going Om is a unique collection of personal narratives from celebrated authors. This anthology of original material values the quality of writing over the authors' flexibility. Ira Sukrungruang shares his heartbreaking struggle as a 375 pound yoga student discovering self-worth on his mat; Gloria Munoz explores the practice of stillness with lyrical elegance in the midst of her busy mind; Neal Pollack's signature sarcasm leads to surprising turns at yoga class with his dad; Elizabeth Kadetsky uses yogic wisdom while coping with her mother's devastating Alzheimer's.
