Loose, informative, and easy to read, the authors lay out the what, how, why, and when of meditation. Focusing on health and happiness, noting that like running, this movement will one day take western countries by storm, they graphically and quickly lay the foundation of the process. At times silly, at times serious, they illustrate away and even go as far as to give a step-by-step program in which the reader goes from just sitting for a couple minutes a day, and over weeks finds themselves meditating for a more substantial period of time. Yes, the goal is twenty minutes a day, but like long and strenuous periods of exercise, they recognize that people will land where they land, but that the act of sitting (to meditate) will be enough in the end. All-in-all, if you love the idea of meditation, a sound mind, and a thankful life, give the book a read. It will motivate you, get you thinking, and maybe even compel you to build a meditation haven in your domicile.
