An interesting view on meditation. Very useful for anybody who wants to find some release from the stress in our modern life. The book is not just a pleasant, funny lecture: it also gives an introduction on meditation techniques as well as yielding some help in facing the typical problems that arise when trying to meditate for the first time. Very instructive, funny and useful for everyone. I would recommend it to anybody who doesn't feel completely satisfied with his/her own life, or who sometimes feels like a fish swimming around in a fish bowl...

"An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation."
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.
Startling, provocative, and often very funny . . . [10% HAPPIER] will convince even the most skeptical reader of meditation's potential. Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
