Highly recommended." — "Library Journal"

Easy reading - profound thinking in short bursts of 2 page chapters. Meaningful and joyful. I will read and reread for many years to come.

Very useful in terms of practical suggestions for meditation. Tends to emphasize freedom more than compassion and makes occasional references to "past lives" which doesn't really jive with my belief system.

If you believe your meditation practice ought to have a positive moral value, and be more than another macho achievement on your path to becoming a superman, this book is for you. This is a serving of meditation for persons who already doubt the truth or value of bourgeois hierarchies. It stands much nearer to Buddhist tradition, philosophy, metaphysics and religion than most contemporary American neo-liberal and objectivist proponents of managerial mindfulness. Like many contemporary Nirvana recipe books, discussion of stuff that might be important to you, even after you become a mental eagle, psychologically soaring over the human ants below, is kind of left out. Capital, work, climate, gender and the social are all overshadowed by the prospect of becoming a modern Zarathustra, John Galt or superhero member of the Fantastic Four. Goldstein is an intelligent and gentle guide to his own experience, and a proper teacher.
