Absolutely Nothing New in this book, but perhaps useful regardless....
Reviewed in the United States on April 13, 2017
-There is absolutely nothing new in this book. The author has simply rehashed the work of the introduction writers Goleman, Kabat-Zinn and of several other authors.
- The meditation exercises given are standard Buddhist meditation exercises that have been in print for many years. Some appear to have been copied almost verbatim from the above mentioned authors. (I am surprised Google allows an employee to publish non original material)
- The other exercises he uses in his Google course "Search Inside Yourself" ("one on one listening", etc) are standard New Age techniques that have been in place for many years.
-The book is written in a straightforward style, easy to digest for the newcomer.
- If the book has helped anyone to find a happier life, then it is overcomes the criticisms listed above.
