Buddhism is all about training the mind, and boot camp is an ideal training method for this generation's short attention span. The chapters in this audiobook can be listened in any order, and are simple and easy to understand. Each story, inspirational quote, and teaching offers mindfulness-enhancing techniques that anyone can relate to. You don't need to be a Buddhist to find the Buddha's teachings motivational. As the Dalai Lama says, "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."

So whether it's Mother Teresa's acts of charity, Gandhi's perseverance, or your aunt Betty's calm demeanor, as long as you're motivated to be better today than you were yesterday, it doesn't matter who inspires you. Regardless of religion, geographical region, race, ethnicity, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, flexibility, or vulnerability, if you do good you feel good, and if you do bad you feel bad.

Buddhism isn't just about meditating. It's about rolling up your sleeves to relieve some of the suffering in the world. If you are ready to be a soldier of peace in the army of love, welcome to Buddhist Boot Camp!

    "Hallmark Card version of Buddhism"

    This seemed to be someone reading a PowerPoint of all the cliches they've ever heard. There was no meat to the discussion. Very superficial.

    "Little Gem"

    I was hesitant about purchasing this audiobook so glad I did what a little golden gem it is. It’s not about religion or trying to get you to follow anything religions. To me the book was about being true to you yourself. There are lots of lovely quotes and examples of everyday living, its common sense and easy to follow. I felt so in tune with this book I was even finishing his sentence. The author’s narration is excellent. All I can say is Namaste.

    This book doesn't go into great depth. However I found it entertaining and informative nonetheless.

    I'd definitely listen to it again....

    Very good book. Lessons of gratitude are practical and liberating. Timber Hawkye reminds readers that we have so much to be thankful for so easy to get caught up in the fast pace, media driven, power hungry world that we live in that we forget about what is truly important.

    "Good Perspective"
    Where does Buddhist Boot Camp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was not my favorite book of all time but good for beginners. First step book in mindfulness and meditation. Learn Buddhist basics!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Timber Hawkeye? Why or why not?

    Maybe. It would need to be a little deeper.


    What does Timber Hawkeye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His insight gave me another way of looking at myself and situations. Not life altering but enlightening.

    Loved it! I have re-listened at least a dozen times, and have recommended it to all of my friends, family, and health coaching clients. I don't consider myself a Buddhist, but I apply the principles I've learned from this book to my life daily.

    "Excellent book"

    Buddhism described in a simple manner. (Is there a better way to describe such a subject?) I can apply these to my life. And already am now, thanks to the time it takes to read a book. And I see changes happening. Good changes in my life. Thank you, Timber Hawkeye!

    "Great Guidance For Everyone"
    If you could sum up Buddhist Boot Camp in three words, what would they be?

    Gold Standard Advice


    What other book might you compare Buddhist Boot Camp to, and why?

    It is a little unique but f you like Wayne Dyer or similar authors, this will appeal to you


    What about Timber Hawkeye’s performance did you like?

    Timber Hawkeye is clearly a genuine guy with a lovely honest and balanced approach to his subject. He is accepting of everyone and their own beliefs whilst being sharing and open about his own.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    Buddhist or not, anyone would benefit from listening to this.

    Story
    "the book that saved me from myself"

    I love the style of Timber's writing. There's no religious dogma in this book, it's just a practical, down to earth, realistic suggestion of a peaceful and positive way of modern life. I listen to it regularly for motivation, centering and inspiration. I came across Timber Hawkeye somehow at a time in my life when I was lost. A time when I was giving my all to someone, found myself left out in the cold and wondering what was wrong with me or how I would ever get over it. Life seemed to be spiralling. Buddhist Boot Camp showed me a different way of looking at the world, a way that would remove fear, blame, guilt and negativity. Suddenly I understood and accepted and the dark cloud of anxiety lifted.

    Everyone needs a Timber Hawkeye in their life. No preaching, no "conversion", no religion, no need to run off and wear robes and live in a cave! But a beautiful, inspiring way to find peace among the mad stresses of modern life. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone.

    Story
    "Life changing common sense"

    Why do we have to learn what we already know to be true from someone else...?

    We are so caught up with the day to day stresses of 'normal' life, that we forget the basics and run the treadmill. This is an easy to follow book which brings you back to earth and focuses the mind on what is important. It clears away the claptrap. As we listen to the book, we know the narrative is correct and we can see how we have lost contact with common sense.

    It left me grounded.

    It is the sort of book you can dip into now and again when you feel the need to clear the mind of non essential concerns

    Worth every penny.
