About this book:
According to Zen Buddhism, life is full of suffering, which is brought about by our attachment to things and people. We all have those moments when we feel we are just about to give up in life (we are depressed), feel stressed by our past, and are anxious about our future. This is just normal to everyone around the world. But while some of us can handle the stress, anxiety and depression that comes with the challenges that life throws at us, there are those instances when we feel we cannot just handle it. During such times, we become angry with ourselves, situations and the people around us. We lose hope in our future and no matter how much we try to fake a smile, it just doesn’t work.
Well, do you know that you could end up committing suicide if you continue harboring stress, anxiety, and depression? And even if you don’t commit suicide, the simple fact that you are constantly depressed, anxious and stressed puts your body on overdrive, which means that you are likely to end up suffering from various health complications including but not limited to hypertension, heart disease, obesity, digestion problems and a lot more. Well, if you’ve already started experiencing those and want to change your live for the better, you probably need to start thinking of how to introduce meditation into your life. If you are new to meditation, you are likely to think it isn’t something you should even try because it is for the monks. Well, this isn’t true. In this book, I will show you how to meditate to fight stress, depression, anxiety and restore your happy self. Here is what this book will teach you:

Every so often, I go on book buying binges (read - I love finding free Kindle books on Amazon!), and I bought this particular little book several months ago, and sat down with it recently.
The author sets out valid arguments about meditation and its benefits in concise language that is easy to understand. He lays out a solid case in favor of why meditation is so good for you, and briefly talks about different ways to meditate.
However, where I got a little hung up (I've been meditation for years, but I don't profess to know it all, by any means), is his suggested procedure for meditation. If I were a newbie to the idea of meditating, knowing myself, I would never end up on a cushion, getting down to the business of meditation, because... It would take me 3 hours to get through all the set up steps, I'd never find a place totally free of distraction to pull this off, and between starting the process and getting to the actual meditation, I'd have to tend to something else for my family.
In a nutshell, that part of the book, is a little overblown and over-complicated in my opinion (I've read and am reading, much better books on meditation and mindfulness where this area is concerned - reviews to come if they aren't already done).
On the other hand, if you're debating whether to begin a meditation practice, or whether meditation is right for you, this isn't a bad book to start with, and the price makes it accessible to everyone (as of this writing, it is still free for both Kindle and audio versions).
