Yoga is so popular. And everyone claims to know what "real" yoga is? Religion? Exercise? Business? Spirituality? How do we navigate the tensions between yoga and consumerism? As yogis we want to let go of attachments, as consumers we want hot designer exercise clothing. But these things are not as contradictory as they seem. Buying Dharma is about the way modern postural yoga helps us live with the contradictions between our rhetoric and our actions. Jordan Shapiro takes a look at Yoga from a depth psychological perspective. He offers a brutally honest and sometimes funny account of yoga in the United States. Ultimately he concludes that yoga's contradictions are what make it such an effective spiritual practice for the 21st century.
From a world-famous pioneer in arthroscopic shoulder surgery comes the first step-by-step "how-to" guide to advanced techniques in shoulder arthroscopy. Dr. Burkhart describes the innovative techniques and instruments he has devised to solve the most difficult surgical problems and offers dozens of tips, tricks, and pearls you won't find in any other book. More than 900 full-color arthroscopic and clinical photographs and numerous drawings complement the text.
The first section explains the principles that underlie successful operative shoulder arthroscopy. The second section gives step-by-step, bulleted instructions and "tricks and tips" for 70 arthroscopic procedures.
A bound-in DVD contains 4 hours of video showing the 70 procedures. Each procedure in the text correlates exactly to the video.
