10% Happier

index.aspxThis title is written by Dan Harris, an ABC News correspondent, current anchor of Nightline and weekend co-host of Good Morning America. I was hooked by the subtitle: How I Tamed the Voice In My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, And Found Self-Help That Actually Works – A True Story as I was shelving it, and I must say it didn’t disappoint. Harris relates how at one point in his early career, he let the “voice in my head run amok” during a live broadcast, which subsequently forced him to re-evaluate his attitude, career and life path. 10% Happier is an anecdotal primer for anyone interested in meditation and how to begin a practice. Harris discusses his teachers and mentors, as well as his successes and struggles, in a humorous and engaging manner and I found this a thoroughly enjoyable read.
