Format: Paperback
I bought this book for one purpose only - to help my daughter de-stress during exams.

"Meditation" cunjurs up all sorts of images, and in this fast-paced, hi-tech, all-action world many feel they don't have time for it, like students!

It's an easy book to read, browse, get the hang of. The meditations are simple (almost too simple it seems!) and easily fit into everyday life. My daughter,myself and many friends of ours are hooked on different exercises and yes, they do only take 5 minutes!

The book is a bit wordy in parts, but the various exercises are first explained fully then there is a shaded box with easy-to-follow instrucions.

As an intro to Meditation or for busy people, this book hits the spot!

This was my first book on meditation and I found it well written, easy to follow and, most importantly, it makes it easy for you to get started with meditation.An excellent introduction to the subject and definitely worth a look at.

Very well written and easy to understand even for me seeing this was my first book on meditation.
It is very good for someone who would like to get started on meditation ie. it just tells you simply what meditation is all about without going into the religous side.

2 types of people could use this book. (i) absolute beginners trying to get a start into meditation & (ii) people practicing formal meditation who want some help extending their practice into daily life.
The book is not perfect. There is a western perception that meditation is a relaxation technique (a cheapskate's alternative to a few beers?)- that this book encourages. A more accurate view is that the relaxation is a useful side effect of formal training in awareness & concentration. This book encourages the current tendency of our society to try & do everything in a hurry. If you want a more thorough approach to meditation, and are prepared to set aside a daily practice period, try "Breath by Breath (Rosenberg) or "Wildmind" (Bodhipaksa) - both serious, but clearly written books about traditional practice. (I found using a buddhist centre open class a key focus for my practice. If this is available, I believe it assists building a regular practice.)
For me, highlights of the book were mindfulness of urination - using a trivial & frequent daily task to practice concentration - and using red traffic lights as an opportunity for mindfulness - which increases my pleasure in driving.
One last word, the traditional Tai Chi aphorism definitely applies to meditation - an ounce of practice is worth a ton of theory.
