5.0 out of 5 stars The author has great insight on Vipasanna meditation, August 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mindfulness in Plain English: Revised and Expanded Edition (Paperback)
I very much enjoyed this book. It is a very useful book. And it is very well written. The language used in the core chapters dealing with the vipassanna meditation indeed use plain language. The prose is very clear and the key ideas are emphasized repeatedly. There is no room for ambiguity in the text.

However, in my opinion, the large chapter on metta which was added later is not of the same quality as the core of the book. It feels as if someone else wrote it. Author should resist writing about personal stories, which is a major fault with typical run-of-the-mill self-help books. Examples include the story about a young girl hugging him at the airport, story about a man failing to reciprocate author's greetings in West Virginia and several others.
