Yoga teacher Cyndi Lee offers a fascinating look at her journey of self-discovery and her struggle to help others while attempting to resolve her self-doubt. Lee's mission takes her across the world and allows her to speak with figures such as actress Jamie Lee Curtis and Louise Hay, one of the founders of the self-help movement. As a narrator, Lee reads with confidence, but allows her tone to become self-deprecating at times, which is fitting given the book's subject matter.
