#1 New York Times Bestseller REVISED WITH NEW MATERIAL Nightline anchor Dan Harrisembarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable. After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out. Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain. 10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America's spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.… (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! ( )

For those looking for more practical tips on stress reduction, this is probably not the book for you. It's not until the final few pages that Harris gives actionable advice beyond "Start meditating." That said, for those who might be looking for a witty, insightful story of how one person journeyed through a journalism career and a meditation practice at the same time, this one is highly recommended. Dan Harris is funny and just the right amount of self-deprecating to keep from descending into self-pity. ( )

Nightline anchor Dan Harris embarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help. 10% Happier is a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news, with a takeaway that could actually change readers’ lives.

Perhaps the most glowing testimonial I could give would be to acknowledge the following reality. After reading Harris’ engaging book, I’m actually considering meditation for the first time (the emphasis on “considering.”) “10% Happier” is a highly readable tome that skillfully blends self-help tips with Harris’ fascinating career (including a panic attack he suffered during a live network show as five million viewers watched). True, I might be especially enamored of this book given the fact that I’ve been a journalist for several decades. I can’t honestly say I would have enjoyed the tale nearly as much if Harris was an accountant or electrical engineer (nothing against accounting or electrical engineering, of course). But Harris effectively raises a number of thought-provoking points. Our "inner narrator" is all too often obsessed with the past and the future — even though "the now is all we have." When the author shared the realization that he had "been sleepwalking through much of his life, swept along by a tide of automatic, habitual behavior," it made me seriously evaluate my mindset. Here’s my take-away: If practicing meditation techniques can actually make someone more clear-headed, rooted in “the now” and 10% happier, it sounds like a solid bang-for-the-buck. ( )
