California psychiatrist and meditation expert Greg Sazima's audiobook exhibits the casual abandon of someone who has truly mastered the art of "giving it a rest." He trains family medicine residents at a Stanford hospital and, with his history of surviving serious bone cancer, comes across as a complex but accessible meditation teacher who knows a lot about the pleasures and misunderstandings surrounding the ancient practice. Narrator Daniel Henning's enjoyable performance captures the author's likable persona and grasp of the human condition. The community theater director's cheery performance serves as a bouncy, complementary vehicle for the author's conversational writing. His delivery is crisp and dramatic but never upstages Sazima's optimistic sensibilities or minimizes the pathos in the author's personal journey.
