"This is one of the most accessible and relevant books available on meditation. Hurry up and read it!" (Ian Gawler OAM, author of Peace of Mind and Meditation - Pure and Simple).
"An ideal introductory text for anyone interested in, but slightly wary of, meditation. I only wish he'd hurried up and written it years ago." (Nigel Marsh, author of Fat, 40 and Fired).

Not bad

I am in the progress of listening to this book.
So for I am interested.

One minor thing that pissed me off:
Audio book chapters are not mapped to audible format chapters. You get to skip in chunks of 70minutes and get in the middle of book chapter.
This is true for format 4. Big thumbs down to audio publisher for this screw up.

Ok, but I should apply mindfulness technique on this irritation :)

Yes, and worth the credit.

Hurry up and read. Its pretty much about its topic line. Mostly common sense stuff, but a good listen. It tells you about meditation and how it helps you center yourself. Its practical in describing the rewards and benefits that come from it. I would recommend this and a few more in the series to help you understand meditation. This one is not trying to push the envelope on the benefits and sounds geniue in its presentation. You will fell like you got your credits worth and I am glad I listened. If you have an interest in meditation, I think you will find this good base info.
