This book is wonderful.

If you are reading this review it's because you are considering buying the book - I'd say, buy it!

Matthew Johnstone has a gift: he understands - he really does. The book is very simple and uncomplicated but shows a deep understanding of a very complex phenomenon - the un-quiet mind. (un-quiet meaning; troubled or stressed or anxious or sad or fearful or .. well, states of mind that are not calm) The simple pictures and text are instantly calming, but the book also does describe how to get into a deeper practice.

There's no point in me saying more - if you're considering buying this book it's because you've come to it either through looking for titles about meditation, or because you know Matthew Johnstone's work.

It's classic MJ and gets 5 bright gold stars from me : )

I've looked into meditation a few times, and tried it a bit, but never committed to it. As a result I tried this book as it was a different approach to what I've tried previously.

I'm very pleased I decided to buy it! Yes it is short as others have mentioned. But I wouldn't want to be it any longer. It has all the good guidance I need. Why stuff it with other fluff just to fatten it out.

I started to practice once a day. It was tough but persisted and started to get better. Then after about a week, one night I had a very vivid dream. Like nothing I have ever experienced. It is hard for me to explain how vivid it was, but it was very real. When I woke up I felt very strange about it. I realised meditating may have had something to do with it, and it spooked me so much I decided to stop meditating.

I didn't have another dream like it for the next few nights. So I started googling to see if it was meditation that was responsible. Turns out the answer is yes. However it is a good thing. It shows the meditation is really starting to be effective. I was spooked by it, but in fact it is just part of the journey and I should be encouraged by it.

Now I know this I have started again over the past 2 days and keep referring back to the book. I will now stick with it no matter how vivid the dreams are. As long as they don't become vivid nightmares I will be happy as it was an interesting experience!

So please don't be put off how short the book is. It has been effective for me and I would recommend it for all begginers.

I absolutely love this book. I keep hearing about how amazing meditation is meant to be so I've been meaning to give it a go for ages but have been quite put off by the thought that it's quite difficult to do, up until now. I love how accessible this book is and how it takes you through it step by step. Am a big fan of Matthew Johnstone anyway, but I love how practical this book is.
