Mindfulness in Plain English
Mindfulness in Plain English
von Henepola Gunaratana
  Taschenbuch

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich
5.0 von 5 Sternen The best you'll find on mindfulness meditation., 5. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mindfulness in Plain English (Taschenbuch)
I love this book. It is straightforward, thorough, and easy to read. I don't know who Gunaratana is, but he does a great job with this book. Even the layout of the book is clean and simple and pleasant.
If you are interested in vipassana or mindfulness meditation, or even zazen, this book is worth reading. It tells you how to do this kind of meditation, and what to do with the problems that come up. It is a practical handbook and it's also fun to read. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I can tell you with some authority that the techniques Gunaratana describes in this book work, and they are worth applying, even if you don't sit still. You can do your work with mindfulness. You can talk to your child with mindfulness. Anything can be a meditation. Mindfulness in Plain English will show you how. I recommend this book.


The Way of Zen
The Way of Zen

5.0 von 5 Sternen Alan Watts at his best., 5. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Way of Zen (Taschenbuch)
Watts is a scholar, first and foremost, and a brilliant writer. In this book, you'll learn where Zen came from. It has its origins in India, where Buddhism was created, and then became as fresh as a gust of wind on its way through China and Chinese Taoism. Zen reached its full fruition after it arrived in Japan.
The book is separated into two sections. The first tells the history of Zen. The second describes the practice of Zen. But all the while, Watts opens your mind and you get the real FEEL of Zen. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I can tell you that Watts' way of writing works: It will change the way you look at the world. This book is very much worth reading.


How to Meditate: A Guide to Self-Discovery
How to Meditate: A Guide to Self-Discovery
von Lawrence Leshan
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best basic training manual on meditation written., 5. Februar 2000
Although Lawrence LeShan has degrees from three universities, he writes with a simple, completely straightforward style. The first section is on the benefits of meditation. And the next section describes how to do four different kinds of meditations.
If you are interested in meditation and you want the author to get right down to business, this is your book. LeShan says what he has to say in 137 pages. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on what works and what doesn't. Meditation works, and LeShan's instructions are effective and practical. I highly recommend this book.


The Tao of Pooh
The Tao of Pooh
von Benjamin Hoff
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 14,13

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable to read and relaxes the mind., 12. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Tao of Pooh (Taschenbuch)
This is a delightful book which conveys the spirit of Taoism very effectively. If you are the kind of person who goes gung-ho into something, you shouldn't read this book, because it is only half the truth. But if you have a good balance with the other half, this is a great book to help you relax your mind and free yourself from counterproductive struggling against the way things are.
The Taoist philosophers were not, in general, very successful people. Taoism tells us a lot about being content, and tells us nothing about accomplishing goals. Both skills are important.
I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on what works and what doesn't. The perspectives Hoff presents in this very readable little book are, without a doubt, highly effective in producing contentment and relaxation. The skill of taking those perspectives when you need to is a valuable skill. This book can help show the way. I recommend it.


The Silva Mind Control Method

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you would like the health benefits of meditation..., 11. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Silva Mind Control Method (Taschenbuch)
...and if you would like to accomplish your goals more effectively, this book is for you. Silva tells you how he developed his method, and what he has done with it. Then he tells you how, step by step, you can accomplish the same things. It is a meditation method, but it's more ACTIVE than most (and more enjoyable). Many scientific studies have been done on this method and they find it has all the benefits of mantra meditation, including reduced stress, increased health, and a greater sense of well-being. In addition, you can use your relaxed frame of mind to accomplish tasks while you are meditating. For example, you might create a solution to a problem, or generate good ideas to help you reach a goal.
I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on effective self-help. The Silva Method is a very effective way to help yourself to a better life.


Finding Flow: The Psychology Of Engagement With Everyday Life (Masterminds (Paperback))
Finding Flow: The Psychology Of Engagement With Everyday Life (Masterminds (Paperback))
von Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 14,28

5.0 von 5 Sternen How to experience more enjoyment in life., 11. Januar 2000
This is a simpler, more practical book than Csikszentmihalyi's other popular work on the subject (Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience). He explains how you can apply the insights from his teams' experiments at the University of Chicago. They've been studying enjoyment for over thirty years -- what it is and how people create it. They are not studying simple pleasure, but real, enjoyable absorption in a task.
Csikszentmihalyi originally studied artists and noticed it wasn't the end-product most good painters were after, it was the process of painting. He was surprised to see painters finish a painting and immediately set up another canvas to continue painting -- without even looking at the masterpiece they had just created. This intrigued him and so he has spent his lifetime exploring this interesting and enjoyable state he calls "flow", and he knows something about how we can have more of it in our lives.
I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on what is effective. Csikszentmihalyi's work is in that category. You can apply his insights and truly experience more enjoyable flow in your life.


Healthy Pleasures
Healthy Pleasures
von Robert E. Ornstein
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 9,99

5.0 von 5 Sternen An important message., 11. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Healthy Pleasures (Taschenbuch)
Ornstein and Sobel write an entirely readable book about an important topic. Everyone knows that we need to exercise and eat right to be healthy. But not everyone knows that many of the things we ENJOY are healthy. And enjoyment ITSELF is healthy!
The authors go into great detail about the different ways you can enhance your health and enjoyment and they cite research to back up what they're saying. Indulge yourself in pleasure: Music, good scents, good flavors, optimism, naps, fun, pets, good friends, etc. These are some of the healthiest things you can do.
If you are interested in maintaining or improving your health AND interested in having a good time along the way, this is the book for you. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on what is effective and what is not. The ideas and research behind this book are important and valuable and very much worth reading.


Mindfulness
Mindfulness
von Ellen J. Langer
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read this book several times., 11. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mindfulness (Taschenbuch)
This book is still selling well after ten years because Langer is a first-rate researcher who can write. And not only that, the subject she chose to study is extremely valuable and important.
The book is basically about mindLESSness: What causes it, what we can do about it, and what difference it makes. If you would like to be more creative in your work, if you would like to be more alive and awake, if you would like to stay mentally young for your entire life, read this book. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on what is effective and what is not. Ellen Langer's work is effective and extremely important, both for you personally and for society at large. I highly recommend this book.


Million Dollar Habits
Million Dollar Habits
von Robert J. Ringer
  Taschenbuch

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich
5.0 von 5 Sternen Solid principles for success., 11. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Million Dollar Habits (Taschenbuch)
I've read a lot of books on success, and they all say basically the same thing: Have a goal, keep a good attitude, work hard. But reading it isn't enough. Some fundamentals have to be constantly reinforced. Ringer presents ten basic principles for success and presents them well. He adds a couple of important principles many writers neglect, like how to deal with people who drain you of your enthusiasm.
It is easy reading, and will reinforce your commitment to doing the fundamentals. Sometimes you just have to hear something one more time to make it stick. I'm the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I am an expert on effective self-help material. Million Dollar Habits fits the bill. Definitely worth reading.


Tao: The Watercourse Way
Tao: The Watercourse Way
von Alan W. Watts
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 14,37

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable reading by a genius., 7. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Tao: The Watercourse Way (Taschenbuch)
Alan Watts is obviously an extremely intelligent and well-read man who has a wonderful way of writing. He is British and sharp as a razor, and his use of analogy is entertaining and clarifying. He knows a lot about Chinese caligraphy and about Taoism in general, so his interpretations of many well-known and already-translated verses adds a fresh new perspective, and I think a valuable one.
One thing Alan does that many writers do not is apply the insights to life. He tries to show how your own life can be more enjoyable by using these Taoist perspectives, and he does this effectively. I'm the author of Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I am an expert on self-help. The ways of perceiving the world Alan presents in this book are effective in making life more enjoyable. I highly recommend it.
