An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation that offers new insights as to how this ancient practice can help modern lives while avoiding the pitfall of cliche. This is a book that will help people, simply put. I know a lot of very powerful, very stressed-out, type-A personalities who will be getting this book from me as a gift this year. (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love)
A sceptic's guide to meditation. With great humour he goes into it kicking and resisting and ends up embracing mindfulness and explaining it brilliantly, while never losing that humour or becoming part of the 'socks and sandals' brigade - I loved it (Ruby Wax, author of Sane New World)
With startling, provocative, and often very funny candor, Dan Harris tells the story of why he urgently needed to tame the strident voice in his head, and how he did it. His argument for the power of mindfulness-which he bases both on cutting-edge science and his own hard-won experience-will convince even the most skeptical reader of meditation's potential. (Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project)
10% Happier is hands down the best book on meditation for the uninitiated, the skeptical, or the merely curious. Dan Harris has whipped up an insightful, engaging, and hilarious tour of the mind's darker corners and what we can do to find a bit of peace. Part confessional, part investigative journalism, 10% Happier is 100% engrossing. (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus)
With a healthy dose of scepticism and humour, Dan Harris skilfully demystifies meditation, reminding us all that a healthy and happy mind is not only essential for our own sanity, but also for those around us. More importantly, he provides a compelling invitation to move beyond words, from the idea to the experience. A wonderful book and excellent advice. (Andy Puddicombe, founder of Headspace)
The perfect book for the spirituality sceptics who really do need meditation in their daily routineSee all Product description
