Publisher's Summary

Whether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or busy stay-at-home mom, the secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to hurry up and slow down, or unplug. As Anne Lamott said, "Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you." Contrary to what every type-A person thinks, studies show that you can actually be more effective by doing less, by unplugging from the chaos of your life for just minutes a day. This can be done effortlessly - even while waiting on line at Starbucks - through meditation.

But Unplug is not the book for anyone who loves buddhas and woo-woo talk. It's a revolutionary book by spiritual entrepreneur and founder and CEO of a popular LA-based meditation studio Suze Yalof Schwartz. The first book that shows the overwhelmed and overworked type-A person how and why to unplug in order to recharge.

Experts ranging from Dr. Oz to Harvard scientists to Vogue claim meditation can make us happier, healthier, more effective, and even smarter. And Unplug is the only book that offers a no-nonsense approach that will appeal to anyone, even if - no, especially if - you believe you think too much, you have no time, you can't sit still, or it's just not for you. In it, Suze debunks a lot of the misperceptions about meditation, including the notion that you need to sit still for long periods for it to work. She also shares the incredible benefits you'll experience, the proof and science to back up how meditation works, and tools and techniques to easily incorporate quick-hit meditations into daily life.

A book for skeptics that will enrage any skeptic.

What disappointed you about Unplug?

Promises to skip bullshit and woo but will recommend it when given a chance.Many faith based claims and no evidence to follow suit.Claims feel exaggerated to the point to the point that I lost faith in the author and decided to stop listening.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Clear instructions.
