Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Davich (The Best Guide to Meditation) has written a book ideally suited to the moment-swift, light, surefooted, brief, easy to read, and offering the promise of results in very little time. That said, Davich's little guide to meditation is indeed humorous, wise, effective, and resolutely nonsectarian: his work should offer readers of many faiths and traditions the opportunity to insert a bit of meditation into their lives and, as Davich promises, carry that meditation forward toward loving kindness. For most collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    An excellent book for the meditation novice.

    Though I have done some higher level meditation in a monastery setting, I needed a book to help me start my own simple home practice. I did not want to wade through anything too heavy, and I enjoyed the simple, direct approach designed for the lay person. Though at times I found it a bit too over-simplified, it is excellent for the beginner who has no no experience or knowledge of meditation. Plus, being a very busy person, I liked the idea of 8 minutes a day. I am almost finished with the book and am ready to move on to a more spiritual and higher level treatise on the subject. Great gift, and I did use AND enjoy it.

    It is worth an 8 minute investment daily!

    This book makes learning useful techniques for meditating simple. If you find yourself to be one of those people who hold onto stress and can't seem to shake it.......meditation could be the key. This book was written in a foolproof way and all the reader has to do is follow the instructions. I look forward to continuing my practice as I have found it helpful in keeping me fresh and my outlook towards life positive.

    A fabulous introduction to meditation - highly recommended!

    This was my first book on meditation, and it was so helpful. I didn't have the slightest knowledge of meditation, but the author slowly introduces you, explains everything simply (without treating you like a novice) and introduces several 10 minute meditations to get you started. It was a tremendous help for my anxiety problems - they went away!

    I've since moved on to longer Jewish meditation, but this book got me going. Highly recommended!

    Great meditation for beginner's book

    It is great for people with no time to meditate but with a desire for something more then the standard prayer routine. If you are looking for enlightenment and awakening, however, it will take a very long time using this method. It is much better then doing nothing at all.
