2.0 out of 5 stars Very business savvy, shame about the writing, 17 May 2010
A terrible read. But hats off to Jacqueline for her business accomplishments. This book taught me that you don't need to be a genius to make a company work, just very very determined. She has what it takes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I hoped it would be, 17 May 2010
I'm always a bit weary of buying clothes/accessories online for fear that what I receive will not correspond to my expectations. It is NOT the case for this watch. I was looking for a retro-looking gold Casio & that's what I got & more: it includes a handy alarm clock & stop watch function. Perfectly happy!

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Vipassana text, 17 May 2010
Please note: this is not a religious cult or phoney spiritual entertainment, this technique is a strictly practical & non-sectarian form of meditation.

If you've already experienced a 10 day Vipassana meditation course, this book will be a helpful & exhaustive reminder of many of the topics covered in Goenkaji's evening discourses. The book is divided into 10 well-structured chapters covering a particular aspect of the Art of Living: each contains a main text, a Q&A section with Goenkaji and a story depicting the lesson.

If you haven't yet taken a course, this book may represent a useful introduction to what this meditation technique is all about. Although - as Goenka himself says - reading about it without practicing is a bit like reciting a doctor's prescription over & over without actually taking the medicine.

I would strongly recommend giving this technique a shot. Even if you're the sort of person who wouldn't normally venture into this kind of activity (such as I was), the benefits in daily life are astounding.

Be happy!
