A book beginning with the sentence "I initially wanted to call this book THE VOICE IN MY HEAD IS AN ASSHOLE," is one that you can only love. "10% Happier" is a book easy to read, half biography and half introduction to meditation, in a no-nonsense way. Sit down on the pillow, close your eyes, concentrate on your breath where breathing in and breathing out is felt under the tip of your nose; thoughts will move around like a monkey in a tree, however - and most importantly - meditation is about always getting back to your single point of concentration in your breath. The acknowledgement of the fact that your focus WILL move away from breathing all the time and that this is a part of meditating is explained in a new and very fine way. Furthermore, it is also quite funny, even though it might not sound like it. The beginning sentence may, however, say more about the tone in the book.
