Have you listened to any of Eric Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Much preferred The Geography of Bliss, where the subject is not himself, but where are the happiest places in the world and what's it like to visit. In this book, he is religion-shopping in, if I may say, an intentionally shallow way. I have some experience with practicing Buddhist meditation, and his observations of his brief attempts to meditate with a teacher are very glib. That he includes a chapter on a new age cult called "Raelians" among discussions of the great religions of the world is inexplicable. His constant complaints about his own neuroticism soon become tedious.
I will say that he is the best reader for his own stuff--his voice has a certain charm and you do become engaged almost in spite of yourself.
My advice, try "Geography of Bliss," which I quite enjoyed, and skip this one.
