This book tells of the benefits of meditation, and then repeats it. Then it refers back to other chapters and sections after they have already passed. I don't think most people who pick up a book on meditation are looking to be convinced as to why they should try it, but maybe I'm wrong. Quick run down - it is good for your health. There you go. And again, meditation has been PROVEN to be good for your health.
There are brief instructions on how to start meditating, with nods to various religious traditions without trying to embody any of them. It would be easy to listen to this book at 1.5x speed and never do anything with the information, which is all I've done so far. But I know for sure I can refer back to chapter 10 when I'm ready to try.
There was some information on types of meditation, on finding a mantra, and on not giving up just because it's hard. I would have like the book to be much more about the practical information such as this.
It would probably have been better in print, when I could skim the cycle of repetition. The information itself isn't bad, but it was the depth of a pamphlet, not a book. They should never have forced the issue to try to turn it into a book. Meditation is a bit like fitness or weight loss - a discipline. It's not complicated, but you have to do it. So go do it. Maybe I will.

I always wanted to meditate daily. But have been on and off about it never really finding commitment over time. After finishing this book I have new found motivation, new inspiration and practical tips how to begin, continue and thrive with my own meditation practice. I found the book inspiring, easy to digest (only 4 hours audio book ) filled with practical tips and a "no-nonsense" approach. I particularly enjoyed the first chapters with references to all the science and benefits of meditation.. That's turned on my mind. Great read! Thank you.
