This Just In: Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics
Dan Harris used to think that meditation was for new age types only. After he had a panic attack on live television he went on a journey that ultimately led him to become one of meditation’s most vocal public proponents.
In Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics, Harris and his friend Jeff Warren, embark on a cross-country trip to find out what stops people from meditating. They rent a tour bus and travel across eighteen states, talking to scores of would-be meditators—including parents, military cadets, police officers, and even a few celebrities. The authors offer scientific backing on the benefits of meditation, create a taxonomy of the most common issues (e.g. I don’t have the time) and offer ways to help people overcome them along with other practical meditation guidance.
The book is not all serious and reads like the travel or road trip book which it partially is.
