Brilliant mediation guide!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I've been looking for comprehensive guide to meditation for years and know that found one now. By far the best book on meditation you can find. I've bought several hard copies of the book to be able to give as a gift.

Good content, narration is distracting

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Get a different narrator.

What didn’t you like about Sean Runnette’s performance?

He is an award winning narrator and I don't understand why. He consistently pronounces the "s" sound as "zsh" or similar, like he's clenching his teeth or something. It wasn't that "dizschtracting" in the audio sample but listening to it over time took me out of the book. I'm sure I'm in the minority here; maybe I'm just over sensitive. Drove me crazy.
