I found this a little disappointing really. There are some nice meditative practices explained, and some interesting scientific theory about the benefits of meditation. Other than that, I didn't feel it offered anything very astounding and was a little too lacking in the Buddha aspect of "Buddha Standard Time" for me personally. It had a self-help-for-stressed-out-executives vibe about it, which wasn't really what I was looking for! Not a bad book, but not exactly life changing either. I think if you want to read about living mindfully in the moment, you would be better with any of Thich Nhat Han's books.
