    Present moment awareness is an essential ingredient in life if one expects to experience any degree of authentic peace and contentment. It has been acknowledged for centuries as the cornerstone of spiritual awakening in all traditions of Eastern thought. In the West, however, it is still a relatively unrecognized concept for living. The Western mind is always restless, never content with the moment.

    Story

    Author identifies and helps you understand how some ways of thinking are prejudicial to bringing discipline and focus to life, thereby changing your perception towards the way we are normally inclined to do things and, in doing so, effecting change in a more efficient and meaningful way.

    Book is short, easy to read and filled with interesting anecdotes that will help you better grasp what is being discussed. I have noticed significant improvements in my abilities to concentrate and focus since applying what was taught in the book and highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their abilities.

    I also got the audio version. You can listen to a chapter every night and finish in a week. Different methods work best for different people, this one worked best for me. I find that the information sinks in best this way.

    I also highly recommend that you take some notes of the main points whilst listening/reading. Writing things down also helps you learn them, add to that the fact that you have a concise and neat summary by the time you finish.

    Apply what you have learned! Buying and reading the book count for, at best, good intentions. You have to fully integrate the concepts into your life if you want to reap their true benefits.

    Happy listening!
