I'm on my 9th day in a row. I use the app CALM. Super helpful. Sometimes I just sit quietly and breathe. It's pretty wild to start this being quiet and centered thing. Dan Harris makes it all so accessible. (and omg..so funny) Yes...read it!!
Harris' use of language can be a bit "salty" at times, but he doesn't do that often, and only as part of his effort to be as down-to-earth and real as he can be about his own skeptical journey.
At the conclusion, Harris makes no startling claims for meditation, just that he's 10% happier, which he considers a solid return on his investment, as most financial advisers might say. But he has come to appreciate the merits of meditation so much that he wants to continue increasing his "rate of return" as much as possible.
This is Harris' way of saying that he still questions the idea about becoming "enlightened" which is an elusive concept for him, as it is for me! But he wants to continue practicing meditation since he now knows first-hand what the benefits can be in very practical, moment-to-moment terms.
This is the best book out there right now to help profoundly skeptical people begin their own reluctant exploration of meditation. But understandably, a skeptic still has to have just enough willingness and curiosity to open the book and peek inside!
This book is extremely well written. The prose reads extremely well, with actual conceptual development from paragraph to paragraph. Each chapter flows directly into the next so that I always felt compelled to read just one more chapter before bed. Be aware that Harris is a fan of $10 words, but just keep your dictionary handy and enjoy using your brain.
The title and the image on the cover, of a glass half full, speak volumes about this book's approach. It's real, practical, and analytical. Harris doesn't ask you to turn off your brain - in fact he expects you to use it.
The book also offers a small view into the world of news media stars. I enjoyed reading about both the glamor and the banality of these people's lives.
This is not really a how-to book. But that's part of Harris's point: You don't need much of a how-to book to improve your life through mindfulness.
