In the last twenty years, meditation and
mindfulness have gone from being kind of cool to becoming an omnipresent
Band-Aid for fixing everything from your weight to your relationship to
your achievement level. Unveiling here the kind of cutting-edge
research that has made them giants in their fields, Daniel Goleman and
Richard Davidson show us the truth about what meditation can really do
for us, as well as exactly how to get the most out of it.


Sweeping away common misconceptions and neuromythology to open
readers’ eyes to the ways data has been distorted to sell
mind-training methods, the authors demonstrate that beyond the pleasant
states mental exercises can produce, the real payoffs are the
lasting personality traits that can result. But short daily doses
will not get us to the highest level of lasting positive

additions. More than sheer hours, we need smart practice, including
crucial ingredients such as targeted feedback from a master teacher and a
more spacious, less attached view of the self, all of which are missing
in widespread versions of mind training. The authors also reveal the
latest data from Davidson’s own lab that point to a new
methodology for developing a broader array of mind-training methods with
larger implications for how we can derive the greatest benefits from
the practice.

those rare books that has the power to change us at the deepest
