Review by Corinna Underwood
You may at first think that the title of this book presents rather a contradiction, but as Michie points out in his introduction, many people quickly dismiss the personal practice of meditation because they don’t have the time. If you are one such person then you should at least take the time to read this book, and then you might just change your mind.
In this refreshing and provocative look at practical meditation Michie shows just how easy it is to take some time, even if only a few minutes, every day to sit and meditate. The initial chapters take and in-depth view of the physical and psychological benefits of meditation. Subsequent chapters explore different meditation techniques, how to judge your progress, how to use meditation for healing and a quick and easy troubleshooting guide.
This is not just another book on meditation. Michie pours his years of experience into his writing and charges it with his irresistible sense of humor. No matter how reluctant you are to meditate, this book will convince you to give it a go.
