Fine, small essays from the author's blog entries. Many good points to ponder...so, it is especially good that each essay is focused, but brief. Allows time for reflection, which is what the author is doing about his spiritual life and practice. Occasionally gets off the path, but I was never "not" interested in his compelling approach to living a life based in values.

This is an interesting book, which I wrote a review of on my website. http://www.artdock.net/mind-work-pete.... I recommend it for anyone interested in meditation, and using meditation in their everyday lives.
