I bought this because I was interested in meditation for weight loss, and still am. The book starts out with interesting ideas and I had an open mind so I just flowed over the references to "past lives" and the supernatural. But, I gave up and stopped listening when the author began advocating skipping vaccinations because they are "toxic." Really? Anti-vaccinations? This books seems beyond new-age, it is anti-science.
Good. Narration is fine. It is the content that is not worth your time.
Anti-vaccinations, past lives, non-science based assertions.
I enjoyed this book more than any of the dozens I have listened to from audible. The author reads it himself and his voice is full of energy and humor. The story is self-deprecating, funny, and in the end, enlightening.
The narrative take on the pressures of a corporate job and the method dealing with them through meditation.
This guy should read other books! He is terrific. Just the right amount of energy and humor for a book of this type. I suspect his time as tv anchor was big help.
I have now bought two other copies of this book to give to family and friends. I am making my husband read it and although he never reads books of this type, he too is enjoying it. It is a terrific story about how personal stress was alleviated by meditation for a skeptical, intelligent, regular, non-religious guy who otherwise had who had no interest in such things.
Beautifully and skillfully written. Try it!
Interesting ideas and well written but the author is better thinker and writer than he is a reader. The audio is stilted and awkward. Very hard to listen to. Wish I had bought the paper version.
