Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Startling, provocative, and often very funny . . . [10% HAPPIER] will convince even the most skeptical reader of meditation’s potential. (Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project)

10% HAPPIER is hands down the best book on meditation for the uninitiated, the skeptical, or the merely curious. . . . an insightful, engaging, and hilarious tour of the mind’s darker corners and what we can do to find a bit of peace. (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus)

The science supporting the health benefits of meditation continues to grow as does the number of Americans who count themselves as practitioners but, it took reading 10% HAPPIER to make me actually want to give it a try. (Richard E. Besser, M.D., Chief Health and Medical Editor, ABC News)

An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation that offers new insights as to how this ancient practice can help modern lives while avoiding the pitfall of cliché. This is a book that will help people, simply put. (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love)

This brilliant, humble, funny story shows how one man found a way to navigate the non-stop stresses and demands of modern life and back to humanity by finally learning to sit around doing nothing. (Colin Beavan, author of No Impact Man)

In 10% Happier, Dan Harris describes in fascinating detail the stresses of working as a news correspondent and the relief he has found through the practice of meditation. This is an extremely brave, funny, and insightful book. Every ambitious person should read it. (Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith)

A compellingly honest, delightfully interesting, and at times heart-warming story of one highly intelligent man’s life-changing journey towards a deeper understanding of what makes us our very best selves. As Dan’s meditation practice deepens, I look forward to him being at least 11% happier, or more. (Chade-Meng Tan, author of Search Inside Yourself)

10% Happier is a spiritual adventure from a master storyteller. Mindfulness can make you happier. Read this to find out how. (George Stephanopoulos)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Nightline anchor Dan Harris embarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable.

After having a nationally televised panic attack on Good Morning America, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure, involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had both propelled him through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business and also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.

We all have a voice in our head. It’s what has us losing our temper unnecessarily, checking our email compulsively, eating when we’re not hungry, and fixating on the past and the future at the expense of the present. Most of us would assume we’re stuck with this voice – that there’s nothing we can do to rein it in – but Harris stumbled upon an effective way to do just that. It’s a far cry from the miracle cures peddled by the self-help swamis he met; instead, it’s something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation. After learning about research that suggests meditation can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, Harris took a deep dive into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines who are now using it for increased calm, focus, and happiness.

10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.

Ce livre est attachant, une certaine sincérité transparait. Dan Harris raconte son expérience sur la voix de la spiritualité. Une approche objective et critique libre des aprioris religieux.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Gem 11 mars 2014
Par Casey Ellis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Well, I *have* read the book--got it on my Kindle a few minutes after 9 p.m., read til midnight and finished it this morning. Harris is funny, self-deprecating and one hell of a writer. I've been interested in Buddhism and mindfulness since a trip to Burma last year but did nothing concrete towards pursuing a practice. Now I am enthused and confident that I see how to begin. And, more importantly, how to continue when the going gets challenging. I wish I had more stars to give.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How meditation changed a mans life... 13 mars 2014
Par Dr. Oceanfront - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Mr. Harris use to be a co-anchor of Nightline. In 2004, while doing an interview on Good Morning America, his life changed when he had a panic attack while on the show.

Mr. Harris realized he was overextended. He researched non-traditional and non-medical remedies while trying to decide the right path for him to follow. He choose meditation.

Interestingly enough, Mr. Harris had met with self help experts like Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle during his career. Still, he ended up working with a Mark Epstein, a doctor with Buddhist leanings. Together Mr. Harris dove into meditation and changed his life in the process.

The book goes into his 10 day meditation retreat and gives us some insight into the process, as he rewires his brain.
He discusses how meditation is no longer for "hippies" but now is being used by CEOs, scientists, and even marines to increase calm, focus, and happiness.

This book also takes a deep look into the neuroscience of meditation as well. An interesting read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Monkey Mind 12 mars 2014
Par C.R. Hurst - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I have a confession. Like the author of 10% Happier, I have an inner voice. A voice that is part fairy godmother, most troll under the bridge. A voice that can reassure but more often than not disparages. A voice that never shuts up. Buddhists call this voice "the monkey mind", the mind that all humans possess and the mind that Dan Harris tames with meditation. With surprising candor and wicked humor Harris chronicles his long and strange journey to become a better man--from his nationally televised anxiety attack on Good Morning America, to his abuse of cocaine, to his insatiable ambition as a journalist, and to his growing awareness that he needed to disentangle from "the clammy embrace of self-obsession." And although he remains skeptical of the new age spirituality in Buddhism, he finds solace in its practice of meditation and its concept of mindfulness--by learning to respond thoughtfully, rather than react thoughtlessly, to the world around him. Couldn't we all benefit from such a lesson?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This book reads like a meditation journal. 19 avril 2014
Par an354 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I just finished reading 10% happier, and I really wanted to like it. I didn't. Here is why:

- If you are someone who is actually seeking advice on meditation technique, DO NOT buy this book. Even if you are a type-A, work-in-high-stress-situations-type, you would benefit much more from an author such as Jack Kornfield, who actually gives you undiluted Buddhist technique written in an incredibly user-friendly way. Jack gives you clear directions and rationale for why certain meditation techniques work. You'll try a few and see which ones work for you, and not use the rest. This book does not give you meditation instruction that works universally.

- The book ends with a a list of mindfulness "how-to's." The problem with this list is that, unlike the list of a truly experienced meditator who has the ability to distill really hard stuff into universally applicable guidance, Dan's list is HIS list. It didn't resonate for me. "Don't be a jerk" - that's not something that'll pop up in my head when someone is cutting me off on the highway. "Hide the Zen." "Meditate." (Seriously??) "The price of security is insecurity" - this is something of a Harris family catchphrase, but has absolutely zero meaning to me. Reading this book versus, say, The Joy of Living is akin to the experience of going to an university-level calculus class that's taught by the best professor in the school versus a crappy TA. A great teacher can boil really, really hard stuff down to a level that anyone can enjoy. A bad TA has you falling asleep in your chair. This book was written by the TA.

- A massive amount of this story is about how Dan Harris found Buddhism. In the meantime, he tries drugs and speaks to a few uber-religious pastor-types and spiritual "gurus." This next sentence will save you 85 pages of reading: if you already know you don't like organized religion, don't take advice from leaders of organized religion, or anyone who calls him/herself a guru. If you are truly type A, you would probably not want to wade through 85 pages just to get to this point.

If you want real meditation advice, or are wading into 'spiritual' waters, here are some of the books that have worked for me (an overly driven and anxious individual who turned to meditation to calm the - down):

Anything by Jack Kornfield, but A Path with Heart stands out (for a meditation beginner, this book stands out)
The Joy of Living, Yongey Rinpoche Mingyur / Eric Swanson (not as much technique, but a solid read and incorporates research findings)
The Heart of Yoga, Desikachar (getting more into yoga, but yoga philosophy and meditation are fundamentally linked... this book can also give you a nice alternative in case vipassana Buddhist meditation is not your thing).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Authentic perspective from a trusted source 11 mars 2014
Par Shelley Straitiff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
As an ambitious woman with a very disruptive and noisy "inner voice", I was surprised to hear Dan Harris's story. I was thrilled to see someone I respect so much as an intelligent, compassionate and "normal" guy talking about meditation and mindfulness. He's not a life-long expert in meditation or eastern philosophy, he's a genuine person I can relate to and trust.

I've become a huge fan of Dan over the past few years, and especially since watching him anchor weekend GMA. I bought the book immediately when I heard about it. Sure, I'm biased. But, I love the conversational approach of the book. It's reality, describes a personal journey, and shares a solution.

More later when I finish, but for now I want to see this book get a chance despite a couple ridiculous reviews from people who have nothing better to do than prevent others from finding (more) happiness.
