The book starts of with a couple of useful insights into the Western way in which we seem unable to live with emptiness. Then, the author's psychoanalytic background begins to shine through and the author makes pseudo-scientific assumptions that would make Karl Popper scream from his grave.

(REAL NAME)   
Mark Epstein with examples from his own life and experience with his patients (he is a New York psychotherapist)gives a helpful guide to anyone seeking to understand themselves and to practise meditation in the Buddhist tradition. Very much a therapist open to his patients, Epstein tells of his own difficulties in finding out who he is and why he felt alienated and unworthy, and takes the reader clearly and carefully through a thought process which is readable and logical, supporting his argument with real-life stories and theoretical background from his teachers and mentors, who include Winnicott, Ram Dass and Joseph Goldstein. This is a convincing co-ordination of Buddhist and current Western psychology at a relatively simple and certainly helpful level.

This review is from: Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart: Buddhist Perspective on Wholeness (Paperback)
The book starts of with a couple of useful insights into the Western way in which we seem unable to live with emptiness. Then, the author's psychoanalytic background begins to shine through and the author makes pseudo-scientific assumptions that would make Karl Popper scream from his grave. It's a shame as I've been interested in both the subject of subjective freedom and therapy for some years now.

Absolutely loved this book an read it in a matter of days.
An inspiring story of how we could find inner comfort and help to overcome deep fears and everyday challenges.
Is an easy read that I really recommend to anyone that appreciate the value of Buddhist religion even without being a deep believer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Food for thought and the heart, 24 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart: Buddhist Perspective on Wholeness (Paperback)
I can not think of anyone who would not benefit from reading this book.
Rather than over filling our lives to distract us from ourselves it encourages us to examine and own ourselves.
