I'm at a time in my life when I am considering many changes... and I'm in search of answers. I bought this book today and I read it today. I've always known that all of the answers to all of your questions are within you... I just didn't know how to get the answers. Or, more importantly, perhaps I didn't have the confidence to trust my own thoughts. I now have a vehicle... a system... that I will put into motion so that I can live my best life.

This book may not affect others or have any impact whatsoever to the next reader. For me, I received the message at the right time; when I needed it, and when I could receive it.

Let me start off with a little background. 1st off, I like Russell Simmons. I believe he is trying to spread peace and happiness to the world. I am one of his Twitter followers. I also do Yoga, and used to meditate , but for various reasons, I've stopped doing it. The reasons I stopped doing it are discussed in this book. "I don't have time., My house is never quiet. I'm just too tired to do it." That being said, I've read many books on Meditation and Buddhism. I never really got into Transcendental Meditation b/c it's very expensive. Anyway, enough about me. I bought this book on Kindle last night and was finished with it this morning. Its a very quick , easy read at around 209 pages. There are 5 Parts to this book. Why meditate, Why you think you can't meditate, The physical benefits of meditation, Living up to your potential, and How to meditate. Now perhaps because I've read all about meditation and its benefits, I found this book to be pretty wasteful. For me, there was no new info. There are pages talking about how it regulates your nervous system, it's good for high blood pressure, etc. Is it me, or do most people already know this? ,Also, he talks about how to actually meditate in the last chapter. Basically this is it. Sit down for 20 min and twice a day, internally chant "Rum." Yes, Rum. This is your mantra he's given you. Groundbreaking! There is absolutely nothing new in this book for anyone who has been meditating, this book is not for you. This is for someone who really knows absolutely nothing about meditating and it's many benefits. Russell also talks about getting into Transcendental Meditation, but really doesn't delve into it, which was disappointing.Read more ›

this book is a wonderful tool to help you learn how to meditate. it also simply and clearly explains the reason that every human on the planet should be mediating, for personal health and the health of humanity.
simmons style is conversational and extremely user friendly. he illustrates several of the concepts in the book using celebrity anecdotes as well as his own experiences. i have dabbled in mediation for a few years using pre-recorded guided meditations, but have never kept up a steady practice. i tried the meditation instructions in the book and found that the 20 minutes went by quicker than ever before. and i find that i am able to meditate more deeply without using a prerecorded guide.
i highly recommend this book to everyone.

I had my doubts. I've tried meditation off and on before but never stuck to it. But Russ sold me on it. The book is a great, quick read, and I can't wait to put this into use.
Will you start dating super models like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
Will you become a millionaire like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
Will you somehow manage to reverse the aging process in a Benjamin Button-esque fashion like Russ after meditating? Probably not.
But it can make you happier, give you a clearer focus, and improve your mental as well as physical health.
So that works for me.

This book gives you a simple blueprint for 'real' success in life. It's very easy to follow and to the point. I suggest that it be read with an open mind and trust that there's a REASON for your reading it. A MUST READ.

I was expecting more of HOW to meditate (learn how to clear your mind of all the crazy thoughts going through it) and what should we really focus on thinking about. This book was more of who, why and what results you will get not "Meditation Made Simple" . It kept pumping me up to "I will get to that later on in the book" low and behold it was the very last chapter teaching you how to say the word Ruuummmm and sit up straight for twenty minutes. Very disappointing!!!!

Talked more about himself than instruction in meditation. Three quarters of the book could be skipped and the instruction is limited.

I was very disappointed. After seeing Russell Simmons on a TV talk show, I expected an enlightening read. The book could have been condensed into 20 pages. Not what I expected.
