Simply put - a very usefu

Simply put - a very useful book. Notwithstanding the title - which is a bit too catchy for my taste. But the subtitle - that's the vital thing! This is a hands-on take on mindfulness meditation and Buddhism in general, coming from the experience of a modern man who learned how to meditate and profoundly benefited from it. Dan Harris, a TV news anchor, is mercilessly candid, not without dark humor, in the description of the road that took him to meditation. The first few chapters are about that. But the rest of the book is what impressed me most. It's very relatable, as for the struggles any newcomer to meditation might face. And his insights and revelations are quite valuable. The concepts such as "Acceptance is not passivity" (!), or "Respond, not react" are so monumental that reiterating them only serves us best. Harris went straight for and managed to bring to light "an accurate diagnosis" of numerable examples of "our inner lunacy". I am with Harris - I don't think it's over-reaching to say that "Mindfulness.... could... change the world". In the long run, I think he has really managed to make meditation more appealing to anybody even hardly interested in it. Somebody who couldn't understand Eckhart Tolle - would surely get this guy, even though the message is basically same. After all, as Harris says - "If it could help a monumental skeptic like me, I could imagine what it could do to others."

I enjoyed this quite a bi

I enjoyed this quite a bit. Dan Harris has an engaging writing style, and I related to his skepticism. I think I might give this whole meditation thing a try.

Excellent memoir on the a

Excellent memoir on the author's experience with discovering meditation and mindfulness and their benefits. Many times Christians have a fear that meditation will somehow corrupt their spiritual practice, but given what science is learning about the mind, meditation and mindfulness could enhance the spiritual experience of individuals regardless of their religious affiliation. The author himself is not even religious, appearing to consider himself an atheist, and even he sees, and has reaped, the benefits of meditation and mindfulness. To top it off, Harris' writing is by degrees hilarious, insightful and brutally honest.

Give it a read - give it

Give it a read - give it a try.. I did and instantly saw the benefit. Now I'm a meditator & proud of it.And to boot??? It's the next BIG thing!
