Not necessarily. I have not read the print version, but I intend to purchase it too. I'd like to review the exercises more carefully.
I suppose one could compare it to "Wherever You Go, There You Are" by Jon Kabat-Zinn, because they are both basic guides to mindfulness mediation. They have very different perspectives and the writing is quite different.
enthusiastic, clear, happy
The title didn't grab my attention, so I was a little hesitant to purchase it with my precious credits. I worried it would be a superficial treatment of mindfulness meditation, but I am happy to say my first impressions were wrong. At first I was skeptical about how much insight a Google engineer could convey in a book about mediation. As it turns out, the engineer had many insights and a great sense of humor. I am preparing to teach a basic mindfulness class in the fall, and I found this book very useful in terms of it examples, clarity and suggested exercises. I especially liked the how the author compared mindfulness, emotional intelligence and self-awareness. These comparisons make the topic of meditation more mainstream and accessible.
