I'm sure some else may get a lot out of this book, but not me.

I would definitely NOT recommend it to someone just starting to meditate. In the first few pages it tells the reader to start with meditating 20 minutes twice a day and work up to an hour twice a day.

A better recommendation would be to start at 5 minutes 3 times a day, then 10 minutes twice a day, and so on.
