Not really about meditation per se, but very good.

If you're looking for a book on "how to meditate" you should look elsewhere. This book is not about Vipassana meditation technique, it's more about the philosophy that underlies it. So the title may mislead, depending on what you're looking for. However, having said that I found the discussions that are contained in the book to be extremely good and very useful from the point of view of Vipassana as an approach to life in general. So if you think of LIFE as an extended meditation, then perhaps the book really is about Vipassana meditation. Anyway, as long as you're not expecting a book on meditation technique, I highly recommend this one. Good stuff.

A bit light

The book is a bit light, intended for as an introductory text with a few of the basic ideas. The idea is to get you to go to your first ten day retreat, as the next step. After you learn a lot about meditation, you go back and read this book again and find out, "Oh, it was there all along." But now you understand it with your heart and your experience, not with just your head and your concepts.

I practiced this method faithfully for ten years, attending one retreat each year. Extraordinarily beneficial. Change your life. Come out of your suffering.
