This is hands down the best reference for meditation. It gives Eastern concepts in clear Western conceptual ways along with the science behind it that Americans will find necessary. Not only is this a "how to" guide to meditation, but he has answered in advance almost any and all questions that you will have along the path including, "why are we doing this?", "where are we going?", "what will happen along the way?", "what pitfalls can I expect and what do I do about them?". He even explains Zen in an understandable way.
WAY better than my expectations. If you get only ONE guide to meditation- get this one. He DOES speak slowly, but if this bothers you, then download it to your IPod and you can speed it up. I USUALLY do that with my audiobooks, but this one is so packed with great information that I didn't want to miss anything that was said.
This audiobook is an abridged version of the book and at the beginning, she states that if you want more information on the exercises, then reference the book. Why would I have bought the audiobook if I have the paper version to reference?? What a waste.
