I spent over a year reading this book as part of Buddhist study group with a lay Buddhist minister leading the group. I hated the book for months. The style of writing was wordy, and I couldn't help but wish McLeod had had a better editor. BUT . . .

I'm so glad that I hung in there. There aren't many books that change my perspective radically, but this one did. By the time I finished the book and with some superb guidance by the group leader, I was seeing quite differently and my meditation practice deepened. I don't know if this would have happened had I read the book independent of the group process, but perhaps.

In any event, I am now re-reading Wake Up to Your Life and discovering things in the early part of the book that my great resistance blinded me to the first time around.
