    " This is a fantastic book. Easy to read and understand for people newly interested in meditation and the short sections make it a great book to pick up for 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Highly recommend this one. I borrowed it from the library but I'm going to buy a copy for the bookshelf. "

    " Pick it up, flip through, and find a section that appeals to you. Buddhist philosophy is one idea taught thousands of different ways and this book can help you come back to where you are. Incidentally, I've heard his son speak and did not connect too well to him. "
