Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chuck D | 2/19/2014

    " I learned some really good technique's from this book. Even though the "for dummies" may be frowned upon I'm not pretentious enough to think I am above this. It was very informitive. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JoJoTheModern | 2/14/2014

    " An excellent primer for someone who wants to know what meditation is all about. Covers how-to, why-to, what to expect, the practice of meditation in a modern life, and aspects both secular and spiritual. Anyone who is curious about meditation will find assistance and instruction in this highly-accessible book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie M | 2/6/2014

    " Just a reminder of everything I learned in the '70's. I have passed it unto my spouse for his viewing please. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 2/4/2014

    " Chapter six begins, "If you're looking for simple, concise meditation instructions, you've come to the right chapter." I'd say that goes for this book as a whole - basic techniques and mechanics for beginners are available here. The book is easy to follow (dummies, duh), and provides much additional info of interest - where/when to meditate, how long, are eyes open or closed, what to do with your hands, what if your foot falls asleep, etc. It continues on (over 300 pages) to more advanced stuff, but I didn't get that far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Scott | 1/31/2014

    " Being the only "for Dummies" book that I have ever read, it would be pointless to compare its effectiveness with other titles in this series. I learned some simple exercises for shaking the stress from the brain and learned more on the importance of breathing, posture, and having a clear mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 1/28/2014

    " Great overview of the science behind meditation, and various techniques. Would be good for someone who just wants to dabble. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brandon | 1/17/2014

    " This was the best "for dummies" book I have ever read. The author did a great job at explaining the history of meditation and gave plenty of different exercises to give you a taste of the various meditation methods. Anyone who wants to learn about meditation should read this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sasha Rose Clifton Oxnard | 1/14/2014

    " A very useful referrence for those wanting to start a home meditation practice. Very much a how-to guide with good answers to questions. Not a book to read cover-to-cover. And I didn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leon M | 12/21/2013

    " Good collection of meditation techniques and tips, but repeats itself quite often. But all in all a good introduction for meditation! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 EP | 12/20/2013

    " Painful, snobby, not a good motivational book to start, even though it is supposed to be one... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen | 12/17/2013

    " Assigned for a course, not something I would have chosen, but a good survey introducing many practices "

    " Erstes Drittel gelesen, bisher sehr gut. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 7/10/2011

    " Good book on the basics of meditation and mindfulness. Felt a bit self-conscious reading it, but that's not a reflection on the book. ;-P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshsisson | 4/15/2011

    " Nice overview of different meditation techniques practiced over time and throughout the world. I think the author lacks some credibility, but the exercises are fun to try anyway. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 9/12/2009

    " Wow, am I really admitting to reading a Dummies Book? Yep, it's a good grounding in the very complex world of Buddhism... the many 'arms' or 'legs'... various philosophies that emerged regionally... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April | 9/19/2008

    " Ok, I didn't technically read the entire book, but there are some really good take home messages and it made me want to visit Tibet one day and hang with the monks. It is certainly something people should read to put their lives, and organized religion, into perspective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leigh | 8/10/2008

    " Take each moment as it comes. Nothing lasts forever. Breathe. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 7/1/2008

    " A really good introduction to Buddhism. Goes into history, theory, and practice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rcharbon | 6/25/2008

    " Good overview of Buddhism, with a clear understanding that there is a practical use for Buddhist ideas even if you don't swallow the mystical BS whole. It is simple, but after all, it is for Dummies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 H.A. | 5/3/2008

    " A cute and comprehensive overview of Buddhism for anyone from the curious to a beginning student. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erma | 2/5/2008

    " I love the "dummies" books. They are the Cliff Notes of Life. Buddhism continues to fascinate me because it more a way of life than a religion and so much about it rings true.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tonia | 8/15/2007

    " I don't usually like these books but I'm enjoying this one. I've read many books on the subject and was left with many questions. This one has answered many of those questions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jim | 4/29/2007

    " Bookshelf Buddhists unite! I like this book because (despite the cheesy premise) it really has a great overview of different Buddhist traditions without the esoteric language that plagues so many Buddhist texts. Whenever I consider getting into Buddhism again, this is where I turn. "
