Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darrell Brogdon | 2/13/2014

    " This is a very good, easy to do, and approachable introduction to the practice of meditation and what to expect. The accompanying CD is a huge help. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/11/2014

    " A perfect primer for anyone who is interested in improving their physical and emotional health through meditation. It is essentially a four-week course in which you learn several core practices and the concepts behind them. It comes with a helpful cd with brief instruction and guided meditations. Even the non-beginner may discover helpful tidbits. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 2/7/2014

    " Almost everyone I know could benefit from reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmen | 2/7/2014

    " Great entry into meditation. I had meditated before but this jump-started my practice. The tone is very accessible and friendly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ingrid Exner | 2/5/2014

    " I picked up this book after doing Loving Kindness and meditation for a number of years. Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation- A 28 Day program is an amazing book that is appropriate for both the beginner and for tose who have been practising meditation for many years. Sharon Slazman provides an easy to read book defining the "nuts and bolts" of meditation. She wonderfully describes the greater concentration, happiness and awarenesds as being only a few of the benefits of practising meditation. I would recommend this book in a heart beat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lois | 2/5/2014

    " This is a really good book, and although I didn't manage to do the complete 28-day program, I read the whole book and am sure I will go back through it often for encouragement in my meditation practice. I'm especially drawn to the Lovingkindness form of meditation, which is how I first heard of the author, and in following it, I can forgive myself for not sitting every day, and just start over. The CD is a nice addition to practicing, also. Thanks, Sharon! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathi Crawford | 1/26/2014

    " I found Sharon Salzberg's "Real Happiness: The Power of Meditation" book very easy to understand and apply. I purchased the book because I wanted to learn more about meditation and begin a meditation practice. The book is set up to read in a weekly format as you build on your knowledge and apply the approaches in your practice. The book includes a companion CD that you can listen to for guided meditations. Sharon shares examples throughout the book with personal anecdotes to make meditation accessible for everyone. Whether you have been practicing meditation for a long time or you are a beginner, you will learn something from Sharon's book to enhance or begin your practice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Corbett | 1/19/2014

    " Very, very basic which is fine for beginners, but I had expected something deeper. My issue, however, was not with the lack of depth, but the lack of a "28-day program" which was touted on the cover. I expect beginning meditators will like this book -- if they want to develop a meditation practice over a 4-week period and not with 28 day-to-day guidelines/suggestions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 B.Z. | 1/12/2014

    " A really hands-on-not-too-much dharma-talk look at how and why to make meditation a part of your daily practice. And for those audio-learners, it comes with a CD. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 1/7/2014

    " This is a very good primer for approaches to meditations designed to develop concentration skills and basic mindfulness. An excellent, accessible introduction--complete with guided meditations on CD--along with plenty of encouragement to develop and maintain a daily practice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 1/7/2014

    " checked it out from the library and have since ordered a copy of my own. ready to practice some mindfulness!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 12/14/2013

    " Sharon, you are the best!!! Wonderful words! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 11/30/2013

    " If you could only have one book about meditation, this would be a good choice. Easy to understand and lots of examples for clarification. I will probably read this one again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greet | 11/28/2013

    " a book to read and reread. Still working on putting it into practise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eshaneh | 11/18/2013

    " An excellent book for people new to meditation and even long-time meditators. Salzberg's wit and wisdom shine through. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 11/16/2013

    " This is a great book, and sets a very nice structure for beginning a meditation practice. She includes just enough research but not too much that it becomes dense. A very easy, quick read with a fantastic CD of guided meditations included. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn Givler | 5/24/2013

    " Sharon makes meditation easy and attainable. As someone who finds it amazingly difficult to sit still, this book really helped me settle in. My meditation practice has gotten stronger, and as a result I feel calmer, more focused, and more peaceful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L8start | 11/26/2012

    " A four-week program to start meditating or renew an existing practice. I loved the book. It was written in a clear, simple style with very real instructions for making mindfulness part of daily life. Loved the book and the accompanying CD. What a bargain! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mollie Glick | 8/1/2012

    " The best intro to meditation book I've found. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 7/18/2012

    " This book was well done and accessible, but honestly, if I've got some free time on my hands, I'm always going to choose reading over meditating. This is probably a compulsion that could be cured through meditation. Anyway, I'm hoping that some of this sticks with me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 7/24/2011

    " particularly good tome on the subject of Meditation. It comes in a special Kindle edition that's pretty cool. "
