by: Shinzen Young

Musician and poet Leonard Cohen called this book “a towering work by one of
the great teachers of our time”. Young is not only an ordained Buddhist but also a
determined scientist, and here he applies all his skills to what really might be
happening when we meditate. It’s a vital map of the territory: well-written and
approachable, it goes very deep, and clears away a lot of the woolly concepts that
have sprung up around the contemporary rise of mindfulness. Thus it becomes a
book of profound hope, because it shows that Buddhist concepts stand up to the
most rigorous analysis. Read it carefully and your life will become more
meaningful and satisfying.
