This book is a very clear and useful manual for doing what it says, developing a personal practice.
It doesn't however replace the need for a real teaching in the first years. But no book does.
Bear in mind too that there are many different types of yoga and this one is a slow breath-based approach based on bringing consciousness to the postures and observing the effects.
Those practising vinasya, astanga or alike would probably not understand where the author was coming from, although the dynamic styles also stem from pupils of the author's father.
It also has an excellent translation of the yoga-sutra at the end. Perhaps the clearest I've read,
