Well spent time

Learning in a short time how to use the rest even better is worthwhile. I've learned meditation from many teachers, and think his simple techniques are in agreement with what really works. Much of the ceremony and fuss around meditation is meant to keep the thoughts occupied or distracted enough that you actually can meditate.. this just shows you how to meditate wherever you may be, without long preambles. It isn't new-agey and isn't in that style. Most new-agey "meditations" would be better termed "cheering visualizations" which can relax and benefit a person, but doesn't immediately give your mind from your own core the chance to meditate and create out of itself. He's teaching, simply, MEDITATION.

Meditation in a minute? Not here!

Low on practical exercises, high on really boring talk, and a very annoying UK (I believe) accent make this painful to listen to. When something is titled, "Meditation in a NY Minute," you expect a series of one-minute meditations, not endless self-important babble about how the author was "chosen" to teach.

Sounds incomplete

I really like Marks paperback version but this sounds like its incomplete. One minute Mark is taking I'd through a Visualization and then bam! We hope you enjoy this audible....

I thought we would get "The putting it all together" chapter and a conclusion.


Anyway.. Content and ideas good... Finished product poor.
