I purchased this in hardcover form and liked it so much that I bought the Kindle version, too. This beginner's guide to meditation is very useful, and the three voice tracks provided (an explanation of meditation and how to meditate, plus two meditation tracks) are incredible. I listen to the tracks on a weekly basis -- and have been pleased to find out that Ms. Lang also posts new tracks to her Facebook page for fans to download.
I came to this guide with no prior experience with meditation and I've been very happy with the explanations provided here. The author doesn't have "one way" to meditate; you can do these exercises whenever, however, in whatever posture, etc. She stresses that the important thing is your convenience and comfort. There's also a really good explanation here for how to deal with interruptive thoughts, which is something that I knew in advance I would struggle with. As it turns out, that's normal and with the vocal guidance, I've been able to work past that more easily than I would have imagined.
I do recommend this guide for anyone interested in coming to meditation. It's quick and easy to leap into and I enjoy using these vocal tracks immensely.
