    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    A smart, entertaining, and illuminating discussion on what happiness really is. This will open your mind to a different reality. Highly recommended.

    Overall

    Great for busy people, who want to gracefully, add meditation, and it’s benefits, into their life. The methods are innovative, and they work.

    ‘Meditation in a New York Minute’ is filled with simple ways to reach a calm, lucid state in the midst of a hectic workday. The author shows exactly how to use little chunks of time during daily activities, to reach an hour a day. A fascinating concept.

    I was looking for inspiration to get back on my meditation schedule. After listening to the audio sample, I knew there was enough value to warrant a purchase. I’m thrilled, as it’s even better than I’d imagined.

    It seems like many audible listeners gave ‘Meditation in a New York Minute’ a high rating, but no one has taken a moment to write a positive review yet, which this deserves. Listen to the sample, and see for yourself.

    Overall

    I hesitated to get this at first. Mainly because I'd never heard of the author, Shinzen Young. But I was sufficiently intrigued by the title; the attainment of enlightenment being a lifelong quest, or at least interest, of mine. Several months ago, after listening to the audible sample, I decided to buy it. I'm so glad I did! Science of Enlightenment is an extraordinary, and life altering work.

    I listened to Science of Enlightenment twice. Both times, I was delighted by the uplifted feeling I received while listening to it. I've come to understand through this audio book, that seasoned meditators are always in a state of meditation to varying degrees. It seems that the crystalline clarity and sheer power of Science of Enlightenment stems from the fact that the author is in a state of lucid meditation while speaking. Perhaps accounting for the inspired, positive energy I get from listening to it.

    From searching on the internet, I discovered that Science of Enlightenment, and many other lectures by Shinzen Young, have never been put into a book form. In fact, the only book I was able to find is a new one on overcoming pain. So the probability of Shinzen Young doing aggressive, national book signing tours, at this point at least, seems unlikely. This non commercial approach makes his work all the more appealing and real.

    I've read many books on the topic of meditation and enlightenment, and even practiced at a couple of Zendos in New York. Although these experiences were excellent, I still hadn't been able to get on a regular meditation schedule. Listening to Science of Enlightenment, gave me a deep understanding of meditation, enlightenment, religion and related topics. As a result, I've finally been meditating, which has profoundly impacted my life. I look forward to the extraordinary long term effects, which Young describes, after a few years of meditating.
