Self evidently annoying

I probably didn't get a lot out of this book because I have already heard many of these strategies synthesised in a more appealing way by more modern writers on these topics. However, I do take issue with constant use of the intellectually lazy phrase 'self evident'. I am sure that for Covey, his moral and ethical concerns do not need to be justified beyond their presence in the bible. But, really, any position that can be taken should be defensible and justified, even if briefly.

I have tried reading the book version of this, and struggled, but I found this lecture style much more useful to get a deeper sense of the specific method of mindfulness. Joseph's voice really helps to provide mental punctuation on the really important points so you know where to start. He repeats and rephrased very important points as well.

I would recommend this for anyone who has been meditating for long enough to have some insights but also questions on how to continue to deepen the practice using the practical steps in the sutta, but rephrased in modern English.

If David Lynch narrated audio books, this is how it would sound. The poor pronunciation and everything just makes the book better to listen to if you imagine David Lynch doing it. You're welcome.

Good content for beginners in Jiujitsu. Worth a listen and relisten in parts.
