I also highly recommend this book as an excellent and detailed guide to the chakras and to some extent the nadis (of which there is no complete guide in publication). It is of great practical assistance to those interested in kundalini yoga and will particularly assist those who follow unreliable New Age methods.
However, as an experienced librarian, I wish to warn all those interested in this subject that this is not a new title but in fact a reprint of the 1980 publication entitled "Layayoga : an advanced method of concentration". I condemn the publisher Inner Traditions for not clearly indicating this fact prominently on the item as well as including a false "Foreword to the Second Edition" (the writer of which clearly asserts this is simply a reprint) and so deceiving those scanning booklists that they may be unnecessarily purchasing a duplicate.

This is an excellent book of reference. The author has done extensive research of the Hindu scriptures for this book and presents the teachings in a very easily understandable language.
This book may disappoint readers who want some nuts and bolts advice about awakening Kundalini as this book, though very detailed, does not really decribe the techniques for kundalini from a user point of view.
