    "This is the book that allowed me to understand what mindfulness and meditation practices are all about. Instead of tuning out, open yourself up to that one thing you can focus on and appreciate it for what it is whether it's the sound of your breath or a drive in the country. Very practical advice. My stress has gone down considerably since working mindfulness into my life although I understand it is a lifelong practice."

    "This book is far too advanced to be for "all". It is intended for those who have gone on in their "training", if you could call it that, and would utterly stymie a beginner. Stay away!"

    "There are a plethora of meditation books out there, but A Path With Heart takes an interesting approach to the genre. Rather than being a "how-to" book, A Path With Heart offers humorous way of combining the norms of American society with the teachings of Buddha. Though it may not be the best for someone who is brand new to meditation, it is a well-reviewed book on meditation that will help those looking for spiritual guidance and entertainment."
