I tried to listen to this while lying on the floor to fix my shoulder, ala _Pain Free_ by Peter Egoscue. Unfortunately, it put me right to sleep every time. Aside from being too tired, I guess I don't really want to meditate that much after all. I had this for almost two months and didn't even start it until a few days before it had to go back.

Listened to it on audio and it was OK. I did like that it was a guided practice, which was easier than reading and then meditating.
