    Step by Step Guidance with CDs

    The perfect book for a beginner like me. I never figured I would get into meditation since I have a major problem with staying on task mentally; but after reading that the neuro-scientists are realizing that mindful meditation has produced significant improvements in brain structure, I decided to give it one more try. Reading a review of Real Happiness by Sharon Salzberg got me started and I was very impressed with her approach that seemed much more attention-deficit friendly than prior books I had read. This workbook is a perfect follow up because it provides the structure, simple format and the 21 CDs that guide you through the different types of meditation and act as a resource for the future. If someone is not into details like in Salzberg's Real Happiness, you could start with this workbook and do just fine, too. Nice to have options!
