A great idea but poorly executed
I returned this book after the first chapter. It seemed to be a comprehensive guide to many types of mediations, which would be a great resource. But it sounded unedited, full of long lists of near-synonyms, with the useful ideas buried under the writing. The narration didn’t help—mostly monotonous. Sorry to hear an obviously qualified author be unable to share his wisdom.
