If you’ve realised the importance of meditation in your everyday life, then you know it is best to do it regularly. One of the quickest ways to learn how to meditate is to read while listening to a CD or MP3.

Now, we won’t lie, there are some drawbacks to this book and CD. Dummies are easily discouraged by long books and this weighs in at almost 400 pages, with the early chapters talking about the importance and goodness of meditation. Since the book is quite long, many Dummies may get drowsy reading it but we’d recommend not reading it cover to cover. read the first few chapters and then just read the sections that interest you first.
Another gripe is the voice on the CD sounds, without being too harsh, a bit egotistical and new agey and to a certain extent stoned. What the listeners want is a voice that match the author’s. A voice that is practical, knowledgeable, fun loving, open, likeable, and well rounded. Many Dummies practising meditation want the right voice on their CD and they’ll gladly pay for it. That said, once you’ll learnt to meditate you won’t notice the voice after a while.
Despite its drawbacks, this is a good book worth the $25 (new) price. If you want an unbiased approach to meditation and emphasis on its essence, then this is the book and CD for you. What is important is your personal transformation and your achieved peace of mind.
