This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn about the practice of meditation. This book does a good job of explaining the basic process of meditation along with how to take this process into everyday life. It offers a simple and relaxed method to understand and live meditation.

This book about Vipassana meditation is so much more than a 'how-to' book. It gently and clearly describes the philosophy behind the meditation practice, and how to overcome one's stumbling blocks in doing the meditation. It's one of my favorites.
