How I Tamed The Voice In My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, And Found Self-Help That Actually Works

Dan Harris

overview

Author and News Anchor, Dan Harris who was struggling with addiction while trying to be ambitious in the competitive world of journalism had an on-air anxiety attack and was on the brink of a total life meltdown. This prompted him to seek help, sober up, go to therapy and eventually agree to embark on a spirituality themed journalism project his boss Peter Jennings (a legendary news anchor) was pressuring him to undertake. This project exposed Dan Harris to a myriad of religious figures, self-help superstars and the likes. He eventually stumbled upon what he feels might be the answer to his conundrum, Mindfulness. To achieve this he had to learn Meditation, being a pragmatic person he had to first demystify the whole concept and distill the true lessons from the standard pretentiousness associated with it. In this book, Dan Harris reveals all he learned in a funny yet enlightening way, he made it easy and practical for people to actually use Meditation in their everyday life.
