    "Awesome!"

    I discovered Jack Kornfield while listening to the Duncan Trussell podcast, and after listening to the same podcast over 5 times, I realized I should give one of Jacks books a try. He is an excellent writer on Buddhist teachings, and I'm very thankful for the things he has opened my eyes, and mind to. The Wise Heart is a fairly long book with many things to offer. I just finished my first listen, and I can promise you it won't be my last!

    If you could sum up The Wise Heart in three words, what would they be?

    Great book to get you started in understanding Buddhist Psychology and the principles of meditation.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No character but Jack is a fabulous author and reader.


    What about Jack Kornfield’s performance did you like?

    His calm, peaceful and deliberate style of reading made this a easy to listen to book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What you should know about meditation before you get started.


    Any additional comments?

    A top book for all who are new to Buddhism.

    "Content was great."

    I found it difficult to fully take in the message due to the monotone nature that it was delivered in. Perhaps you could argue my mind was not clear enough to take in what the reader was providing. However the flat delivery did not keep my attention.

    "Can be life changing"

    Jack's voice is an easy one to listen to. The ideas in the book had a profound effect on me. I had listened to Jack's audio presentation at Spirit Rock, Buddhism for Beginners, years ago and fell in love with the concept. If you really listen to the ideas I think they can help give a lot of deep understanding of the world. I loved it. Thank you Jack for your beautiful words.
