I've written a short book on mindfulness. The very title, "Zen on the Run: Mindfulness in a New York Minute" encapsulates the focus of this work. It is brief and easily accessible. It's targeted to those (not just New Yorkers) who multitask, are inattentive to the world they live in and blot out the essence of being present, (i.e., they're not fully living their lives). The format of this book is Q & A.

This book fills a niche: it's target audience is those who are put off by lengthy, fuzzy, and spiritually focused treatises, they want haiku, not an epic poem, a text message not a page-long letter. My book is short, to the point, somewhat humorous, yet no-nonsense.
