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.

A very helpful book for everybody who wants to practise meditation seriously. Goldstein is a renowned meditation teacher, but in this book he also shares his own painful and joyful experiences on the spiritual path in a warm and honest way. The book is absolutely readable for total beginners and yet still interesting for experienced meditators.

Been on retreat with this guy, and he is a Guru of Insight Meditation. Very simply written book highly recommended to both us old timers and those newer to the Buddhist spirit (note that I didn't use the word religion).

Insight meditation has one special quality: clarity. Its an interesting and easy to read book suitable for all levels. A good help that, apart from guidance, can help you solve a few doubts about meditation and its practice.
