My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The title is aptly descriptive, it is a short ebook. I think I read it in 15 minutes, but that’s not really the point of this book. This book is a lesson in sitting quietly with yourself, which is something many of us humans have trouble doing, myself included.
This book is separated into tiny, poem-like chapters, the first one essentially explaining the basics of sitting quietly. The rest of the chapters help you work through what happens when you sit quietly, what to do with those pesky emotions, a wandering mind, and existential crises.
It’s written by a Buddhist, but it is written in such a way as to be appropriate for all religions or lack thereof. Anyone could benefit from this and that’s essentially why the author wrote it!
