Publisher's Summary

Buddhism is all about training the mind, and boot camp is an ideal training method for this generation's short attention span. The chapters in this audiobook can be listened in any order, and are simple and easy to understand. Each story, inspirational quote, and teaching offers mindfulness-enhancing techniques that anyone can relate to. You don't need to be a Buddhist to find the Buddha's teachings motivational. As the Dalai Lama says, "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."
So whether it's Mother Teresa's acts of charity, Gandhi's perseverance, or your aunt Betty's calm demeanor, as long as you're motivated to be better today than you were yesterday, it doesn't matter who inspires you. Regardless of religion, geographical region, race, ethnicity, color, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, flexibility, or vulnerability, if you do good you feel good, and if you do bad you feel bad.
Buddhism isn't just about meditating. It's about rolling up your sleeves to relieve some of the suffering in the world. If you are ready to be a soldier of peace in the army of love, welcome to Buddhist Boot Camp!

the book that saved me from myself

I love the style of Timber's writing. There's no religious dogma in this book, it's just a practical, down to earth, realistic suggestion of a peaceful and positive way of modern life. I listen to it regularly for motivation, centering and inspiration. I came across Timber Hawkeye somehow at a time in my life when I was lost. A time when I was giving my all to someone, found myself left out in the cold and wondering what was wrong with me or how I would ever get over it. Life seemed to be spiralling. Buddhist Boot Camp showed me a different way of looking at the world, a way that would remove fear, blame, guilt and negativity. Suddenly I understood and accepted and the dark cloud of anxiety lifted.

Everyone needs a Timber Hawkeye in their life. No preaching, no "conversion", no religion, no need to run off and wear robes and live in a cave! But a beautiful, inspiring way to find peace among the mad stresses of modern life. I'd wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone.
