Peace ar last!
I didn't know life could get better! My soul yearned for confirmation that 'less is more.' I'm simply amazed, no 'rocketed to the 5th dimension' with this stuff. To live a life conscious of the moment, purposefully , slowly and serenely is all I've ever wanted and this book teaches me how in the simplest of terms. Like, right here, right now stuff, like 'begin where you are stuff, NOW. No thinking necessary 'just be the person/thing that you seek, right now. Thank you Jon and every other teacher of this way of being, thank you.

Excellent clear introduction to Mindfulness
I am a clinical psychologist working with people experiencing a range of psychological problems, and recommend this to everyone I work with when using mindfulness (which is most people!). It is very easy to listen to, explaining the history and practice of mindfulness in every day life. The first half is a talk about mindfulness, the second half is a series of simple mindfulness exercises. Well worth the money!

I've listened to this every week since I downloaded it a few months ago, and find it extremely helpful in relaxation and keeping me grounded. I love the tone and cadence of it; it less like a reading and more like an impassioned conversation with a friend. He removes the religious and new-age-y connotations from meditation, and explains how awareness fits in with thoughts, senses, mind and body.

Great for beginners
This book will teach you how to listen. If you are in a hurry this is not for... you. There are many pauses that will test your patience but if you let go and just listen you will be satisfied.
