Even though I have numerous books on meditation I found this 195 paperback volume surprisingly refreshing, interesting and informative. Where most books on meditation recommend doing two 20-minute sessions as a minimum, the author, in order to bring more people into the practice of mindfulness meditation promotes just 8 minute sessions at a starting point.
I love the writing style and approach this writer uses to encourage the reader to practice meditation. He gives easy and practical answers to numerous questions about meditation. This text is organized into three parts. Part one meditation 101 gives a simple and practical introduction to the subject of meditation. The second part goes into detail on his 8 week meditation program. The final section explains how to upgrade beyond the 8 minute meditation program.
In conclusion, this book is one of the best I have ever read on introducing meditation practice to anyone interested in the subject. If you are interested in a no nonsense, simple and effective meditation system you should check out this wonderful book.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Haiku Moments: How to read, write and enjoy haiku).
This book is an excellent primer for those who have never mediated and want to learn.
