just as it says

If you are beginning to explore sitting meditation, this is an excellent audio guide and introduction. The guided practice is succinct and well-done, and I appreciated the commentary before and after. It is a nice progression - from breathing meditation and slightly beyond - easy to listen to and nicely explained. A friend had recommended the printed version of this book, but I found that having the audio guided practice much more appropriate than trying to read/remember/practice. Initially, the audio helps me to re-direct/return to focus. Highly recommended.

Great, compact, effective

This is what a meditation audio should be. It's brief and includes four or five guided meditations of around ten minutes each, along with brief discussions by the author before and after each meditation.
