    When a book means a lot to me, I have a more difficult time reviewing it. I finished this memoir a week ago and have been pondering it ever since. Dan Harris is a reporter and anchorman at ABC News. Back in 2004, he had a panic attack on air while trying to read the morning headline...

    I am a self-help cynic. I've never read any self-help, but I knew I needed to get a handle on my stress, anxiety and anger. When I read the description of this book (I listened to the audio version) I said, "OK, newsman, tell me how to be happier." Dan Harris is an anchor for ABC, a...

    Dan Harris is a bit of a jerk. You don?t have to take my word for it. He says it himself, more than once, in his book. A lot of 10% Happier is about Harris trying to be less of a jerk. Among his other journalistic accomplishments, which include more than a few in-country assignmen...

    Well, I watched that ol? Minimalists documentary on Netflix, and there?s ol? Dan Harris talking about having a panic attack on live TV. He mentions this book he wrote about being 10 percent happier, and I thought ?Hell, I?d love to be 10 percent happier. Please, Dan, by all m...

    A fun read, albeit one that gets bogged down in too many internal monologues to make it a truly great book. Harris is a fun writer, yet I found this entire book to be strangely narcissistic. Which is ironic, as 'ego' is why he first started meditating in the first place. His inte...

    This bestseller annoyed me over and over. It's more of a memoir than a book about learning to meditate - something I do. But to read this book you must read about the life of this privileged rich white guy who has no social conscious and little interest in the people around him other t...

    Dan Harris had problems, like all of us, but unlike all of us, he was beginning to experience some of the messier symptoms of his dysfunctional inner world in front of millions of people. He sought help and jumped into the meditation world with both feet. I think its why most people...

    I've been under a fair bit of stress lately. Nearly a year into self-employment, work has become steadier, sometimes more than steady. Although I love it, I've finally come to understand why people yearn to meditate. With my mind racing with mostly unproductive worries and nags, I've b...

    I fucking loved this book. It's the most compelling introduction to meditation I've seen, after spending hundreds of dollars buying books on the subject. I have a therapy practice that is mindfulness-based. I often recommend informative-but-boring mindfulness-related books to people th...
