While it seemed like much of the book focused on convincing the reader to take up (and stick with) biblical meditation, I did feel comfortable that I could do it after completing this book. I enjoyed the 10-day meditation guide at the end, which takes you step-by-step through the "ponder, personify, practice" process using some verses quoted in the book. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book.
Side note: He included a story about having trouble sleeping once due to a sudden fear that popped into his mind, but meditating on a Scripture verse allowed him to fall back to sleep. I've been struggling with fears popping into my head when I'm trying to sleep, but I've been able to remain calm since I started pondering Bible verses as I go to bed. I felt like that story was just for me.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher through BookLook.
In nine chapters Morgan addresses the importance of biblical meditation and provides practical steps to put this spiritual discipline into practice. Throughout the book there are quick tips which provide simple ideas that help make biblical meditation something that any reader can easily implement in their day-to-day life. In chapters 2 through 8 Morgan helps readers understand how to think about Scripture as they meditate on it as well as providing techniques that can be used. The final chapter addresses Bible memorization which is really foundational to meditation as one cannot meditate on Scripture that has not be stored in memory.
Given the lack of priority professing Christians place on the Bible Morgan's book is both timely and valuable. It's written at a level where most readers will find it accessible and understandable.

I received a copy of this book free in exchange for my honest opinion.
I really like this book because Morgan shows you how to focus your meditation time so that you go into it being prepared and having the ability to get the most out of your time. His writing is very grounded in scripture and he leads you back to the bible, which I love. There is also a 10 day study guide at the back of the book that can get you jumpstarted on your path to biblical mediation.
There is one thing that I actually got a little aggravated with. Throughout the book Morgan directs you back to his website to get a free study guide and meditations. When you go to that address there is nothing there, none of the items you are directed to find. I had to SEARCH his site and only came close to what Morgan was talking about. To get your free meditations you will need to scan in your receipt and jump through some hoops to received it. Now, this doesn't really effect the substance that is in the book, but for me, it's the little things that can be a bother. For me, the study guide at the back of the book was enough.
Overall, this book would be a great way to deepen your faith walk and I highly suggest you read it.
