The density of the text and the abundance of lists in the first half make this audiobook a little hard to get into. The second half is pure practical philosophy and absolutely beautiful, I loved it.
I've recently become interested in Buddhism and have read numerous introductory books. This one started strong with fresh info on how the brain works. Towards the end it became more of a standard quick intro to types of meditation.
It is probably better to get as an ebook, as some of the heavier science is probably easier to read at your own pace than to listen to.
If you are using a meditation app like headspace, this book makes a little more practicable sense
Trying to get through this, and I usually LOVE content like thins, not sure I'll make it without returning it. The speaker is presenting complex info in the driest most boring way ever. Some books just don't translate to audio well and maybe this is one of them.
This is a very good book which teaches simple ways of living life. Points and brings attention a lot of simple things to do that can change the way we look at things. It is using the things to bring more togetherness with nature, God, and each other.
Simply: thank you
I started reading this book during what ended up being one of the most challenging times of loss and pain I have ever been forced to face. The lessons, insights and techniques comtained herein have left me forever stronger and happier.
Enlightening is how I'd describe my listening experience of this title. Very informative and enlightening. I'd definitely listen to this book again.
