Until recently, if offered a book on meditation, I would have expected it to come with a free Enya cd and a bag of fair trade chai. ;) I have always considered myself too logical-minded for stuff like navel-gazing. This book, however, written by researchers at UCLA, compiles some very convincing data on the benefits of meditation; benefits to the quality of one's daily life, stress level, and longterm physical health. The best part is, the techniques described are ridiculously simple. Not necessarily easy to master, but simple to learn (sorta like Texas Hold 'Em). With this book as a guide, there's hope for any one of us to become, as the authors say, a "recovered fretter."
