‘An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite a personal look at the benefits of meditation’ – Elizabeth Gilbert

  • 10% Happier is a spiritual book written for – and by – someone who would otherwise never read a spiritual book. It is both a deadly serious and seriously funny look at mindfulness and meditation as the next big public health revolution.
  • Dan Harris always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. How else can you climb the ladder in an ultra-competitive field like TV news except through nonstop hand-wringing and hyper vigilance?
  • For a while, his strategy worked. Harris anchored national broadcasts and he covered wars. Then he hit the brakes, and had a full-blown panic attack live on the air.
  • What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events – involving a disgraced evangelical pastor, a mysterious self-help guru and a fateful gift from his wife – Harris stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: meditation.
  • At first, he was deeply suspicious. He had long associated meditation with bearded swamis and unwashed hippies.
  • But when confronted with mounting scientific evidence that just a few minutes a day can literally rewire the brain for focus,happiness, and reduced reactivity, Harris took a deep dive.
  • He spent years mingling with scientists,executives and marines on the front lines of a quiet revolution that has the potential to reshape society.
  • He became a daily meditator, and even found himself on a ten-day, silent meditation retreat, which was simultaneously the best and worst experience he’d ever had.

Harris’s life was not transformed into a parade of rainbows and unicorns, but he did gain a passion for daily meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of Dan’s conversion amid the harried and decidedly non-Zen world of the newsroom, it concludes with a section for the novice on how to get started.
