My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I listened this this one and found it surprisingly entertaining! I say surprising because I’m not a big fan of the self-help genre and I don’t watch broadcast news, so I wasn’t optimistic about this combination. I am intrigued by meditation and there was no waitlist for this audiobook on my library’s Overdrive audiobook collection, so I dove in, albeit with trepidation. The other surprise came when I realized that Dan Harris is actually one of the many illustrious alums of the high school where I’m a librarian. Who knew? I found the book to strike a nice balance between interesting famous person’s backstory and well-researched journalistic content delivered with wry wit and self-effacing charm. I might even read his next book! ~ Ms Dimmick
