As a beginner to the study of Buddhism a good portion of this book was over my head. However, I was able to learn new concepts from many parts of this book. It was well worth the time and money.
Excellent performance from the narrator.
Short, but a good place to get started with meditation. Talks about a number of lessons learned to help get your practice going. Rinzler is young but has been mediating for many years and has also taught meditation. I believe this book is good for ages 12 thru 100; but I think it particularly talks to the 12 to 30 crowd. I ordered a paperback version for my 22 year old daughter. There are some Buddhist ideas in the book; but if you are not interested in that part the book is still very worth while. The author offers personal help if you want to get in touch with him.
A lot of insights into understanding suffering. Several good suggestions for even using short periods of time to help you find happiness and understand suffering. I will plan on listening to this book a few more times to try and get all I can out of it.
A few times the noise from the audience was a little distracting, but not bad. The noise was the reason I gave 4 stars for performance. Thich Nhat Hanh's voice is very pleasant and nice to listen to.
This was the second book of his I have listened to and I plan on getting more of his books.
