It's good, but...

...it's included in the final part of "Do You Do It or Does It Do You." I didn't realize this until I'd already purchased the "Do You Do..." title. I like the mediation instruction he gives in the first half, but it gets a little corny towards the end...

A Teacher teaches . . . about meditation

Alan Watts is a recent discovery for me, and surely at the right time for me.

Meditation has been a struggle for me. My perception of meditation has changed for the better from this short audiobook. Breaking aspects of meditation into components and their possible effects or usage makes sense and helps me as a student trying to learn a new skill by myself. The light undertone throughout his discussion is helpful.

The internet has made it possible for me to find some very good Teachers and Alan Watts is a real find. I am still listening to another audio book that is a compilation of various lectures he made, and it too is really enjoyable.

Alan Watts' voice is *positive* and energetic - it's fun to listen to him.
