Ten Percent Happier by Dan Harris - Book Review

I enjoyed listening to "10% Happier" by Dan Harris a few weeks ago, and I think if you are a skeptical person interested in self-help - there is a lot that you can take away from this book. Chunks of the book are like a memoir of Dan Harris's life and his career, and then other chunks are about self-help tactics and meditation. The author, Dan Harris, had a panic attack on live, national television - and after that, he began seeking out, and was inspired by, different ideas within the self-help community. But each time he would find a new self-help concept to try out, he would hit this wall of skepticism. At which point he would start to look elsewhere. Harris finally settled on meditation as being the most beneficial to him. I enjoyed hearing Dan Harris's perspective on all of these different self-help ideas - it's like a taste test of all of these different self-help gurus and philosophies. Have you read 10% Happier? Let me know what you thought of it below, or let me know which self-help book you have found most helpful!
