Buddhist monk (and Western psychologist) Jack Kornfield cofounded two well-regarded meditation retreats, and through his bestselling books and tapes he has helped popularize the practice of Buddhist insight meditation in the United States. His newest book continues the tradition. This abridgment is seamless, and Kornfield comes across as a smart, humble, humorous man with real charm--in short, an excellent teacher. He reads with a clear, gentle voice that sounds singsongy at the beginning. Yet he livens up when relating personal anecdotes, and soon enough his narration improves, making this a winning choice for anyone interested in learning about using the most practical aspects of Buddhist psychology in daily life.
