“Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics” by Dan Harris, Jeff Warren, and Carlye Adler
If you’re a subscriber to the 10 Percent app then the title of this book, “Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics”, shouldn’t be unfamiliar for you. It is similar with that fun course in the app, “Meditation for Skeptics”, where Dan Harris and Jeff Warren drive around America on a huge bus to teach meditation to various types of people or groups of people.
And that is exactly what this book is about, the extended analysis and diary for that particular journey across the country. It has all the similar level of fun narrative, jokes, and meaningful lessons that the course provide us. It also has the transcript of all the guided meditations for that course, complete with the hilarious commentaries.
Moreover, while Dan Harris’ first book, 10% Happier, was more about his journey from TV meltdown to searching for meaning to discovery of meditation (and meeting all the wonderful teachers along the way that become the teachers in the Ten Percent app), this 2nd book is also about the technicalities of meditation, that are detailed enough to teach us everything we need to know to start meditating like the pros, but clear and concise enough that it doesn’t dwell too much on the nonsense.
You may say, the book is perfect for anyone skeptical on this whole meditation mumbo jumbo, but curious enough to want to give it a good try. Always a good fun with these guys.
