M4D is the best book on meditation I have read. It is simply and clearly written, and very well structured. It provides background, research results and describes the various things meditation is seeking to achieve, from the 'lowly' ability to focus attention, through relaxing, dealing with stress, gaining insight into the way one's mind has been conditioned, cultivating compassion, to the 'lofty' goal of spiritual Oneness. He even shows how you can use it to develop skill levels. In an undogmatic and good humoured way, SB shows how one can disembark at any of these 'destinations' and still benefit from meditation. He provides many examples of different types of meditation to serve different tastes and different purposes as well as detailing a comprehensive list of resources (books, organisations) to assist one on the journey. If all Dummies books are this good, I'm a convert.

Excellent read, straight to the point with very little unpronounceable word usage.
Does not focus on any religion or spiritual practise but gets straight down to the bones of the issue.
I have found it both an interesting read and very useful for getting me started along the way.
My thanks to the author.

Very good. I've been meditating for the last five or six years daily and never really got past basic first principals. Gives an overall view of different methods which I found quite fascinating.
