From the Inside Flap
As a striving entrepreneur, Shannon Duncan had always thought that money and success would bring him happiness. But when he retired a multimillionaire before the age of thirty and could buy almost any possession or experience he wanted, he realized that the source of happiness was definitely elsewhere. Through a series of realizations, brought about through self-exploration and study, Duncan realized that what he was really searching for was to feel good about himself, and thus feel safe and peaceful in the world. Once he gained the opportunity to realize what wouldn't bring him peace, he began to understand that peace was always within him, underneath the turmoil, if only he would surrender enough to see it.
Duncans book, Present Moment Awareness, has already become a self-published word-of-mouth phenomenon, garnering praise for its practical, down-to-earth advice for living in the present. Filled with easy, accessible anecdotes and exercises, Present Moment Awareness shows readers how they can drop their emotional baggage, calm their worries about the future, and start enjoying the peace and happiness that can only be found in the present moment. Through a series of simple but enlightening concepts, Duncan shows how we can discover the true causes of our stress and discontent, transform our emotions from rulers into advisors, and start enjoying our lives, right here and now.

Interestingly enough, the word "meditation" only appears *once* in the entire book, seemingly by accident when the author was relating an anecdote. This is probably by design - perhaps he didn't want to turn off people who have felt let down by other more Eastern-spirituality-laden books on the subject. Then again, this may not really be a book about "meditation" per se. It is really about living in the present, rather than obsessing about the past or future.
I ignored the author's advice and simply bookmarked the various exercises, then read my way straight through the book. When I had finished I thought that the author was credible and inspirational enough that I tried them out, and found all of them to work roughly as described.
An excellent work that I will read again.
