Harris has written his autobiographical journey to becoming a meditator and made it accessible to a western audience. He takes a lot of the woo woo out of the Buddhist/spiritual approach. I enjoyed hearing about his silent retreat enormously, and his analysis of the challenges and pitfalls on this journey, but ultimately the benefits from keeping at it spurred him to write this book and it's a goodie.

Henrietta's sultry, mellifluous voice carries you off on a magic carpet ride round the world. Her journey is epic and wondrous. it is an autobiography where you learn a lot about tea along the way. Thoroughly enjoyed. Wish more narrators were like her.

I found Ronson to be an engaging interviewer and he looked at the issue of internet porn from many different angles. The main thing I came away with was that millennials need to limit their porn intake as the consequences are pretty dire and lifelong. Early sexual responses with real females not screen ones will stand men in much better stead for ongoing and lasting engagement with women.

Well researched and written. I am a happy person and still found plenty of food for thought to build my resilience and deepen my understanding. The author was the narrator who I had to speed up 10% as his voice, meaning to be clear, sounded just plain dreary, which was somewhat counter-productive! I persevered as the content was solid.
