    The law of Yoga is the law of Life. Yoga embodies the secrets of successful living and combines profound and age-old truths with a way of life acceptable to the modern mind.  
    But Yoga is not a religion, nor is it a mystic cult.  
    It is a Hindu system of philosophic meditation and asceticism designed to effect the reunion of the devotee’s soul with God.  
    It is a philosophy which integrates the individual life and the world surrounding us to achieve a basic harmony and equilibrium in the heart and mind of man. 
    This book is primarily concerned with this Yoga of the physical body known as Hatha Yoga.  
    While the body and the mind cannot be separated and the health of one affects the health of the other, I have laid stress on the day to day problems and ailments of the average person who wishes to improve his general health.  
    Not everyone has the mystic vocation to achieve union with God, the Universal Spirit, which is the primary aim of all Yoga, but everyone would like to know how to improve his health. 
    Many Westerners, moving as they do in a world of hurry and stress, feel that Yoga holds nothing for them and that the whole philosophy is rather remote, vague, and impractical.  
    In this book my aim is to show readers how the ancient system of Yoga provides an effective answer to the many problems of our modern life. 
    You can take an active part in the hurly burly of everyday living and Yoga will act as a protection from the numerous stresses of your environment.  
    While best results are obtained by exercising and practicing breathing and relaxation alone, nevertheless you need not become a hermit to achieve success and improved health through Yoga.  
    Healing Yoga joins the ancient knowledge with the practice of hatha yoga to help treat common ailments, including headache, asthma, bronchitis, insomnia, fatigue, neurasthenia, arthritis, rheumatism, obesity, female disorders, tension and emotional stress, kidney and liver complaints, eyestrain and stiff neck, stomach pain and the improvement of the figure. The book is suitable for both beginners and experienced yogis.

    ABOUT THE BOOK
    As the global economy endures tumultuous twists and turns largely due to unsound and unsustainable investment strategies, it is important to rediscover and pay heed to the ideas of economists such as Benjamin Graham. The crux of Graham’s philosophy is approaching securities investment from a real wealth, real value perspective that focuses on long-term wealth creation. Graham’s mindset is the opposite of that which has led to “destructively creative,” or to put it more bluntly, downright fraudulent accounting techniques and dangerously speculative short-term investment schemes that have caused such economic upheaval on a global scale throughout the better part of the last decade.
    
    Contemporary economic luminaries such as billionaire Warren E. Buffett agree. Buffett, who contributed the preface and appendices to this edition of Graham’s seminal tome, is widely quoted as saying The Intelligent Investor is “by far the best book on investing ever written.” In the preface Buffett doesn’t mince words with regard to the weight of the book’s significance:
    “To invest successfully over a lifetime does not require a stratospheric IQ, unusual business insights, or inside information. What’s needed is a sound intellectual framework for making decisions and the ability to keep emotions from corroding that framework. This book precisely and clearly prescribes the proper framework. You must supply the emotional discipline.”
    
    The current hyper-emotional, lightning-fast-paced investment climate very much needs a refresher course on the principles outlined in Graham’s The Intelligent Investor. As market volatility becomes the unfortunate normal modus operandi for the corporate and financial world, investors should keenly take to heart the concepts Graham provides.
    MEET THE AUTHOR
    Joe Taglieri is a professional journalist and musician (drum set and Latin percussion instruments) in Los Angeles. He has written on a range of subjects for a variety of publications since the 1990s. Taglieri's forte is writing about governmental and economic issues, and he has a keen interest in sports and the arts, most notably music, television and film. He holds a degree in print journalism from the University of Southern California and has studied, taught and performed via the drum set for nearly 25 years and has done the same with Latin percussion instruments such as conga and bongo drums, cajón and timbales for more than 15 years.
    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
    No doubt, the risky investment practices that contributed to the Great Depression provided a fertile field of reference for a young Benjamin Graham as he would go on to develop financial strategies that proved widely influential and firmly withstood the test of time. As Zweig put it in the Intelligent Investor: “Graham came by his insights the hard way: by feeling firsthand the anguish of financial loss and by studying for decades the history and psychology of the markets” In the same work, Buffett also aptly observed:
    
    “It is rare that the founder of a discipline does not find his work eclipsed in rather short order by successors. But over forty years after publication of the book that brought structure and logic to a disorderly and confused activity, it is difficult to think of possible candidates for even the runner-up position in the field of security analysis...Ben’s principles have remained sound...His counsel of soundness brought unfailing rewards to his followers...”
    
    A clear example of value investing’s long-term relevance can be seen through the lens of the insurance company GEICO. (The acronym stands for Government Employee Insurance Company, which was the firm’s first niche client market.) Noting GEICO’s sound and safe business model that had resulted in significant growth, Graham’s investment firm purchased a 50-percent stake in the insurance company. By 1972 shares originally purchased at $27 apiece vaulted to a peak valuation of more than $16,000.
