This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
This is a book about meditation. Fine for some. I wanted a book on neuroscientific facts or studies. The slow and boring pace where meditation is taught is not typical of a book about neuroscience. Change Through Meditation would have been a better title. I would not have wasted my money.
Would you ever listen to anything by Kelly McGonigal again?
NO!!!! I purchased the book after seeing an impressive performance on TED Talks. This book is nothing like that presentation. I feel a bit robbed.
What didn’t you like about the narrator’s performance?
It was read so slowly, I was bored at the first sentence. Again, this was a "How To" on meditation, not material about neuroscience.
Any additional comments?
Wish I had my money back

I first became acquainted with Kelly McGonigal through her talks published on youtube, and her work on compassion and social change is the best. YES! she does use brain science to back up her ideas (one reviewer below denies it). Yes, her methods are practical, though they must be steadily and regularly implemented. Read her book on willpower along with this one. They dovetail nicely, and the book on willpower will help you understand and apply the principles in this book.
