Direct, as the title suggests

This book is brimming with practical nuts and bolts advice and wisdom for someone with a regular meditation practice. It might(?) be a bit much for someone totally unfamiliar with meditation, but it would be excellent if you truly wanted to try sitting on a regular basis. There is a pretty serious discussion of concentration-one pointed attention on a single object, like the breath-as a means of strengthening mindfulness that i found very helpful. That theme of developing concentration in tandem with mindfulness and how they serve each other is something i don't think i had read or heard explained so clearly before. I would absolutely recommend this book if you sit or really no bullshit want to try sitting. I would say this book would be 100% amazing if you had tried meditating and wanted to have more direction and understand mindfulness more clearly. So, yea in that case, 100% amazing for anyone who meditates.
