Description

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 listeners 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.

A must read - even if you’re not into meditation

A strong, down to earth man working as a journalist tells about his ups and downs and the different layers of mediation. In contrast to books that talk about Buddhism, it’s philosophy or self-help books, this one takes a deep dive into a personal experience and the struggle to apply the learnings of Buddhism/meditation in our daily lives. I personally really connect with the authors struggles and I think his insights a very deep and useful. The story and his character has a lot of charm and humor. Definitely a must read - even if you’re not interested in meditation. It lets you think outside your box :)

funny and "enlighting"

This book is really funny and "enlighting". A must read for everyone interested in self-improvement and stress reduction whilst wishing to be still able to persue his career! It is not only well written and enjoyable to read it also helped me a lot to see some personal issues clearer and find the right solutions!

Insightful and funny

I like that the author himself is speaking. The book has given me new insights about meditation and how to incorporate it into the life of a professional. It was both insightful and funny to hear about his struggles, and should enable me and others to make quicker progress with our own journeys.

More a biography than a guide

This book is actually a biography of the authors highs and lows in life and how these affected him. The title of "how to not give a fuck" is not really discussed in the book. Sad I expected more knowledge above spiritual things
