Tantra: The Path of Ecstasy - Georg Feuerstein An approachable and stimulating introduction to a fascinating, complex and mysterious subject.

Although informative, this is very much not a how-to book, peppered as it is with warnings of the 'do not try this at home' variety.

The book makes it clear that it is only skimming the surface of what can be understood about traditional Tantra, an ancient mystical technology which, due to its sexual elements, has been largely interpreted in the West as being merely focused on achieving sexual ecstasy while being outside the pale of respectability in normative Hinduism so that modern practitioners in India tend to be underground and little known.
