If you have never done meditation before this is a fantastic introduction If you have an existing practice and have been doing it for awhile there is not much in here to learn. A nice audiobook I will continue to listen to going to sleep when I need to come back to center. Pleasantly surprised by this book and definitely a great book to get on audiobook The title makes it sound like the book will be very dry, but it wasn t at all Instead, this book provides calming, practical advice for building the habits you want and explains how that advice fits into both science and the wisdom traditions like Buddhism Addresses many of the paradoxes of change, such as how trying NOT to think about something makes us think about it , or how when we are self critical in an attempt to change it undermines our ability to change Really helpful and a relaxing listen. 3h 2x Basic introduction to meditation with some neuro thrown in parts of the brain weren t referred to by name IIRC, just by function analogies I liked the reflective questions found the author s speech generally non annoying Visualization, imagining, reflections e.g., If anything were possible, what would you like to see , What do you want to offer to the world followed by the relevant What are you willing to let go of. Using science to give ourselves a better quality of life is a wonderful idea We can learn so much about what is working for groups of people and whyand what isn t working I learned a lot about how the brain works There is so much valuable information in this book, I can t even begin to give it all a review However, I can t recommend this book enough It s for those times when you ask yourself, Why do I act this way and What can I do to not do this next time Whether you are overcoming an addiction, wanting to lose some weight, stop procrastinating or just generally get a clearer idea of why we fall into patternsI would recommend that you read it There are also activities included that can really help you to get to know yourself better. This is an excellent audio book Dr McGonigal does a terrific job of elucidating the science that supports mindfulness practices Her explanations of why it is so difficult to stop mind chatter and to change habits and develop new ones helped me to be tolerant of my frequent failed attempts Dr McGonigal has a nice voice and her guided meditations are very nice She is one of my favorite psychologists.
