This book is an excellent primer for those who have never mediated and want to learn.
If you're not familiar with meditation, check this book out and use it as a launching pad. If you are familiar with meditation, skip this one, as there's not much information here that you won't already know.
Victor makes meditation simple and injects a lot of humor into this small but powerful book. He provides a good definition of what meditation is (allow, allow, allow) and tells you to not worry about enlightenment but just to meditate. A lot of people who are interested in meditation will probably approach their first session of meditation like I did. Expecting to be a Zen warrior monk after their first try. Victor quickly dispels these myths and provides a realistic goal for you to have. And you know what? I couldn't be happier that he did. Had he not I would have thought I was doing something wrong or thought I wasn't good enough to continue practicing and likely would have quit altogether. I think others would have too.
In short, buy this book if you're looking to gain some peace and happiness in your life. I recently completed the eight week plan and I can honestly say that I gained a profound sense of peace and tranquility after practicing Victor's meditation techniques described in this book. I even routinely did more than one eight minute session in one day because after a while meditation began to make me feel incredibly peaceful and happy! And in this day an age of constant stress, information bombardment, and always being on the go that's a priceless thing to have gained.
If you do the 8 week program you will likely be able to choose a meditation method that suits you best in a continuing meditation practice. The only downside for me was that there were some forms of meditation that I found did not help me reach any sort of depth and were more of a distraction than a vehicle.
