“With his teachings and this wonderful book, Josh joins the emerging trend of integrating the best practices of Western theorists with the highest wisdom of the Buddha.” (Noah Levine, from his foreword)
“Josh Korda has laid out a no-nonsense psychological road map for anyone who wants to get to the heart of their stuck patterns. It's rare that a teacher is so honest about himself and it humanizes the practices, allowing the reader to see their way through to profound inner change and connection with others. (Lodro Rinzler, author of Love Hurts)
“Josh Korda makes Buddhism relatable and fresh, weaves in neuroscience and psychology, and serves it all up with a heaping dollop of candor, fearlessness, and wit. This book is how-to-guide for people wanting to learn how to face demons, forge deeper connections, sit comfortably in their skin, and step away from the distractions of social media and mindlessness of consumerism—things we all know will never leave us satisfied. Tune in and unsubscribe.” (Cara Buckley of The New York Times)
“Unsubscribe is unvarnished Dharma. With fierce determination and piercing insight, Josh Korda aims to awaken a culture lulled by material comfort and spiritual delusion. Only open this book of you are ready to hear the truth and take on the task of authentic transformation.” (Kevin Griffin, author of One Breath at a Time)
“Many of what I consider to be the universal truths are presented in this book, but one thing made Unsubscribe really stand out: This book is blunt. And that's exactly what we need it to be. No flowers, no empty promises, just the honest truth.” (Miguel Chen, author of I Wanna Be Well, and bass player for Teenage Bottlerocket)
“Inspired. Unsubscribe offers a way to radically change your life into wholehearted being. Read. Explore. Engage!” (Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison, editor Awake at the Bedside)
“Josh Korda brings a fresh face to Buddhism. His teachings, grounded in the Theravadan tradition are derived from his personal experience of addiction and recovery. He presents the dharma in a way that is accessible, engaging, confrontational, and honest. A contemporary sutra for the dharma curious and the seasoned practitioner, Unsubscribe offers us the opportunity to see the Buddha Way through a new lens.” (Sensei Robert Chodo Campbell, New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care)
“Josh’s book offers extremely satisfying insights on how to give meaning to our lives, how to understand and work with emotions, and the importance of interpersonal relationships for our well-being. I especially appreciated how he draws from his many years of study and practice of both Buddhism and modern psychology to tackle these issues, which are so fundamental to so many of us.” (Than Philippe, Forest Monk & Monastery Abbot, Phayao Thailand)
“An intelligent, compassionate addition to popular Buddhist literature that doesn’t shy away from the realities of life and practice.” (Publishers Weekly)

This is no happy-hippy fluff piece, nor is it some angry anti-establishment rant... this book is both a manual for the heart/mind as well as a toolbox to perform preventative maintenance and repairs on it. Josh Korda's new offering is the antithesis of many similarly targeted writings which give the distinct feeling of being a Dharma book overreaching to come across as relevant in the modern psychology era, or a psychology book attempting to lend itself "spiritual authority"... it demonstrates a most practical mastery of both Dharma and modern psychology, organically integrating both approaches.
Josh knows that when help is needed at deeper than surface levels a stream of platitudes and conceptual assurances will not suffice. He offers a cohesive approach to life's difficulties through explorations of concepts that are matched with somatic practice suggestions in chapters that are of digestible length. In summary: Depth, Breadth, & Heart of the most useful type skillfully conveyed through a fluid & personal writing style.
My only objection to the various emphases of “Unsubscribe” is that is seems dismissive of those who, by nature or by preference, have a taste for the joys of healthy solitude, silence, and seclusion. Certainly there is ample support in the sutras-and in life-for these states, but little attention is given by the author to the more introverted aspects of practice.
Other than that criticism, which is founded on personal inclination, I highly recommend this book for its effective insights and techniques.
I highly recommend this to anyone that is on the path, seeking, meditating.... you will find it of great value.
While reading Unsubscribe, I feel both comforted and impelled to wise action. It's like speaking with a kind friend who holds your particular experience and wellbeing in their heart while also illuminating possibilities for the benefit of our shared world and urging you towards compassionate discernment in your own life choices. The book is a great blend of insights and practices with which the reader can experiment.
I would love to know how it's experienced by folks who are encountering these teachings and reflections for the first time. I intend to find out by giving the book to friends!
