Reviewed in the United States on May 29, 2018
Next time you get fed up and depressed listening to today’s endless litany of bad news, pick up Robert Isenberg’s book of essays, “Why Men Are Suspicious of Yoga”, open it at any page, and be prepared to have your spirits lightened. Robert writes with a wry and witty eye on the foibles of human beings, including his own. There’s the famous (or infamous) Mr. Frig, the technically sophisticated refrigerator that has no trouble speaking his mind to his human owners, who he plainly regards as inferior to him in understanding of what’s what. There’s the fox who does not take kindly to discovering that the sexy female fox lure he’s been following has, in fact, been laid down by some idiot human for some obscure idiotic human reason. There’s the funeral being organized by OCD friend, Harvey, for his mother, though she’s still very much alive and he’s signed up for a tennis game that morning that his partners do not appreciate him missing for a funeral for somebody who hasn’t even died yet. In short, drop into Mr. Isenberg’s zany world for a while and when you emerge, the real one won’t seem quite so dark and depressing.
