Weaving together the accumulated wisdom of his two worlds - Buddhism and Western psychotherapy - Mark Epstein shows how "the happiness that we seek depends on our ability to balance the ego's need to do with our inherent capacity to be." He encourages us to relax the ever-vigilant mind in order to experience the freedom that comes only from relinquishing control.
Drawing on events in Epstein's own life and stories from his patients, Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart teaches us that only by letting go can we start on the path to a more peaceful and spiritually satisfying life.

beautiful and insightful
Would you listen to Going to Pieces without Falling Apart again? Why?
I am definitely going to listen to this book multiple times because it was full of insights about the way our minds work, and was written and read in a beautiful way, full of anecdotes and stories to illustrate his points, which for me is a super helpful way of teaching.
What does Patrick Lawlor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He's a very enjoyable reader and I loved his voice as the narrator of this book - it just felt right.
Any additional comments?
I am reading all of Mark Epstein's books that I can get my hands on and so far this is my absolute favorite. It is inspiring, beautifully written, with exquisite insights into the human psyche. It made me very interested in the Buddhism/meditation/psychology similarities and relationships. It was super positive, soothing but engaging and full of exciting new ideas...basically one of the best books I've ever read.
