Here is a book about meditation for those who are scared off by the typical meditation books in the new age or spiritual sections of the book store. Dan Harris is a successful reporter for ABC news, who is plagued by stress, worry, and the non-stop to-do list running through his mind. His tipping point is an on-air panic attack where freezes, starts speaking incoherently, and then completely stops. For the sake of his health and career, he realizes something needs to change.

Dan ends up exploring meditation as way to calm his racing mind. He reads about and interviews many of today's gurus, which provides interesting fodder for the book (wary of Eckhart Tolle at first, he ends up admiring his teaching. He thinks Deepak Chopra is essentially a charlatan). After much frustration (typical of anyone beginning a meditation practice) he comes to find meditation deeply helpful, although he is quick to note that it's not an absolute panacea.… (lisätietoja)

The retelling of a news journalist's path to less anxiety, and more calm. By interviewing for work several self-help gurus, he found his path to a bit of more peacefulness. He recounting of a silent retreat was both humorous and informative. Loved the way he also recounted the stress of being a network reporter and anchorman. The competition would put anyone over the edge and made them doubt themselves. Very readable.

Although I'm not a yogi myself, I've always been intrigued by the practice.

While Dan may come across as a super privileged white man, he grapples with his own demons in a way that's relatable. It's refreshing to witness his struggles, skepticism, and eventual fulfillment.

Admittedly, I never felt like picking up the book at my usual reading times, it never truly left me ‘wanting more’. But once I started reading again, I found it to be quite engaging. I truly enjoyed it, and there were moments that had me laughing out loud, especially during the retreat chapter.

Overall a solid 4 for the fun! And who knows maybe I too can be 10% happier!

This was more about Dan Harris and less about meditation than I expected but it was still a worthwhile read for me.

At times I considered abandoning it but pushed on and was ultimately worth it to take away the message that it's at least worth trying the practice to see if it helps. Having a skeptic who voices some of my own misgivings come around to supporting the idea is certainly compelling.

What I found most interesting is that many of the ultimate lessons Harris learned are things I think I already recognize and practice. I'm not sure if it's the Catholic upbringing (I've often said to my husband Mass to me is less about true faith and more about getting an hour to zen out in a place with familiar/comforting ritual) or the marathon running where I spend hours and hours in my own head doing little but breathing in and out and "noting" what's going on with my body. Perhaps I've been meditating all this time and just didn't know it!
