The author gives a nice, actually quite good, framework for approaching basic prayer. Given that the word 'mystic" is in the title, however, I had hoped to hear a more esoteric discussion (along the lines of Thomas Keating for example), and had hoped he would refer more to, and draw from, the teachings of actual mystics to a greater degree.

Would you listen to Armchair Mystic again? Why?
What other book might you compare Armchair Mystic to and why?
Practicing the Presence of God for modern day.
Have you listened to any of Mark E. Thibodeaux’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Very pastoral and heartfelt.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No extreme reactions, just a deep sense of longing to be with God.
Any additional comments?
This book dispelled a lot of my preconceived and taught notions about what contemplative prayer and Christian "mystics" were about. I'm sold.

I really enjoyed this book. I found that the author gives really practical advice on how to improve your prayer life. This book is not about Mystics or Mysticism it is about the ordinary person wanting to improve his/her prayer life to become as close to God as possible in an ordinary lay persons life
