Mark Thornton zips through this semiautobiographical meditation training manual with a cheerful Aussie smile in his voice. He attempts to allay listeners' doubts about his credentials while sharing pearls of meditative wisdom--techniques and ideas from a variety of disciplines. Apparently he has hordes of students soaking in his condensed wisdom, but in audiobook form it comes across as scattershot and arbitrary. While listeners may be able to implement some of the centering meditative techniques, the lack of a working structure makes this anything but a calming listen. The hyperbolic title is presumably a publisher's attempt to sell more audiobooks. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
