Summary

Author and psychiatrist Paul Fleischman gave these talks in Europe and America in 2007. He gave them to various audiences, and the nature of each audience partly shaped the contents of each talk. For example the Boston talk was to mental health professionals in the USA, and the Freiberg talk was to "Mindfulness" researchers in Germany. The content of the talks reflect those circumstances. Several question and answer sessions are included.

Wouldn't buy this one again

Whoa.......................that narrator was tough to take. Just listen to the sample. Maybe that ruined the content for me, but the content didn't strike me as all that great either. I've read a bunch of these types of books and listened to a few here as well. Mindfulness in Plain English is still the best book I've read in print, even though (or perhaps because) it sticks to the basics. Beyond that printed book, The Science of Enlightenment by Shinzen Young is one you can listen to, and for me it's about forty times better than whatever comes in second place.
