The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (translation and commentary by Chip Hartranft)... by far the best book on the YS

"Patanjali recognised that one of the most primary internal forces in a human being is the inclination toward selfhood. Self-making has the effect of organising the shifting contents of consciousness into a seamless pseudo-reality that seems to unfold over time. This constructed reality consists of oneself as subject and everyone else as object. From this vantage point, the world and the self feel like enduring entities, each different from the other, with essential qualities that are carried forward through time."
