This is exactly what you need if you want to start practicing meditation. The author stresses out how important it is to focus on the simpliest techniques at the beginning and never give up until you become fluent. This is exactly what my own experience shows. If you're looking for a good guide on how to start with meditation (in day-to-day life, not in Shaolin monastery after 15 years of constant practice), this book will be just perfect. Not only does the author show you the technique, but also tells you about the mindset, lifestyle and thought hygiene, which are all very important areas, necessary to cover if you ask me. I'm glad I bought this book.
