It takes the committed reader through a series of meditation exercises both in written form and in the accompanying CDs and in order to get full value out of the book then these really do have to be followed closely - this is very time intensive so be sure you have the time to commit if you want to get full value for money.
If you don't have the time then, like me, you may still find use in the book as it is extremely well written, explaining in some detail and more clearly than I have seen before some of the fundamental concepts of Buddhism and the objectives of meditation. For this alone it is worth the purchase price.
