With the same humor, candor, and practical advice that made him one of the freshest, most inspiring voices to come along in years, ABC News anchor Dan Harris now debunks all the myths, misconceptions, and self-deceptions that keep you from meditating so you'll quit procrastinating and get your butt on the cushion.
Interested in meditation, but allergic to woo-woo? Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for people who drank kombucha, played ultimate frisbee, listened to Enya, and used the word "namaste" without irony. Then he had a full-blown panic attack on live television (five million views on YouTube!) and on his way to sanity, discovered meditation for himself and became a convert.
His memoir about this experience, 10% Happier, became a number-one best seller and made listeners (fidgety skeptics like himself) curious about meditating. But then...in his travels, Dan encountered a lot of people who said they wanted to meditate, but couldn't quiet their mind, didn't have time, felt weird and culty doing it, etc.
So he set out on a cross-country trek with Jeffrey Warren, a master meditation teacher (a "Meditation MacGyver"), to get to the root of the problem. The result is a book that, with irony and insight, confronts and dismantles all the reasons you're not meditating - and provides a range of meditation practices that meet you where you are in your life and offer you the chance to become 10% happier, for real.

On-target help. Thank you, Dan and Jeff.
Overall: This book hit the bulls-eye with me. I do some kind of meditation every day., though I often wonder as in the Randy Newman song, “Maybe I’m doing it wrong.” Still, I’m mindfull of the positive difference in my life when I take the time. Dan’s 10% Happier book and app helped set the stage for what has become one of my best habits. That stage being set, this latest book is like acting class.
Performance: These guys are pros. It is excellent, as expected. It flows like a conversation.
Story: Pay attention to the title. This book is intended for fidgety skeptics, if that isn’t you, then you may not relate the the story which is essentially that of Dan Harris’s epistemic exploration of mindfulness meditataion as it relates to himself. The good news for me is, it checks most of my boxes, too. If the title fits you, then dive in, and don’t forget to check out the app.
