missing section!

WTF! Missing some of the most insightful sections. Feeling ripped off, Karma and Ahisma no where to be found. Unable to maneuver between chapters.

Didn't care for the background musak

The material was difficult to digest withe the woo-woo hippie background music. Some of the concepts were lost in this format. I would not recommend.

Music or chimes during speaking

The wisdom is superb however the chines are terribly annoying. It would be very helpful to tone them down in other editions.

great book

Very valuable tips and I even enjoyed the music in the background. He explains the concepts of what meditation is in great detail.

Poor sound quality

I have two other of this author's book which he narrates. The sound on this recording is very poor where the others are not. I also have the CD of this book and it was fine, so I can't understand what happened to this one. It's distracting to listen to because of the substandard sound quality.

Exceptional

As a fan of Eckhart Tolle I have been looking for even more practical guides on being present. I am encouraged to continue not only in my daily attempts (practice) of yoga but am also renewing my commitment to mindful meditation.

Good book, awful narrator.

Get the physical version. The narrators voice is so dull and monotone it will put you to sleep in your car.

Speaks too fast

How could the performance have been better?

Jon kabat-zin is an excellent speaker but narrates this book in an awkwardly fast pace making it hard to listen to

Extremely insightful

Probably the best book on understanding what mindfulness and meditation really are. The best jumping off point.

But PLEASE, the music at the beginning of the chapters should absolutely be eradicated! It ruins the audiobook experience.
