Very comprehensive study of meditation

If you could sum up Meditation: The Complete Guide to Meditation for Mental Balance, Health, and Vitality in three words, what would they be?

Informative, interesting, enlightening

What other book might you compare Meditation: The Complete Guide to Meditation for Mental Balance, Health, and Vitality to and why?

This is the first meditation book I have ever read so I don't know how to answer that honestly.

Have you listened to any of Darren Roebuck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I have not, this is the first of his books I have ever read.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The part of the book where we simply are. We exist and that's a good thing and everything else is situational and created by ourselves and other people.

Any additional comments?

This is an amazing booknow for beginners I had no idea there were so many different types of meditation. I thought meditation was basically done one way so that was amazing to learn.

Great for basic overview

Would you listen to Meditation: The Complete Guide to Meditation for Mental Balance, Health, and Vitality again? Why?

I liked the book and would because it covered a lot of material on how to really get started for the why of meditation instead of just how to do it.

What other book might you compare Meditation: The Complete Guide to Meditation for Mental Balance, Health, and Vitality to and why?

This is the first book I've really read in regards to meditation and I think it was a great book to start with.

Any additional comments?

I think this was an exceptional book as a beginner. I enjoy hearing about backstories and how things developed into what they are instead of just being told the idea of this is what we're going to do now just go do it.
