Mixing a true personal story with scientific research and the wisdom of renowned self-help gurus, this book takes an entertaining and refreshingly honest approach to overcoming the trappings of everyday life. The lessons Harris learns through his journey of self-discovery are a much-needed launch pad for anyone looking to live a more meaningful life.<br /><br />In this acclaimed memoir, Dan Harris recounts the events leading to his televised panic attack and takes the reader through the subsequent quest to find himself. In an accidental journey involving evangelicals, self-help gurus, Buddhists, and neuroscientists, Harris narrates how he discovered he had been sleepwalking his entire life. He paints a vibrant picture of mindless living as he reveals his pursuit of the thrill of war reporting and his indulgence in hard drugs.<br /><br />Harris recounts how he discovered his internal monologue was at the root of his mindless behavior and how an unlikely practice gave him a way out. He narrates how he learned meditation, nurtured compassion in an aggressive industry, and found lasting happiness. He sets out to demystify meditation and show it can work for anyone. In his view, you don’t have to lose your edge, creativity, or success habits when you quiet the incessant voice in your head.<br /><br /><h4>Click Buy Now with 1-Click to Own your copy today!</h4><br /><b>Please note:</b> This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.

J.K.

There’s no dearth of magical characters in this movie, and even non-wizards aka No-Majs are incredibly interesting, but what makes this movie impeccable is its comic timing. <br /><br />Potterheads will perhaps enjoy Newt’s character the most since the gullible magizoologist tries his best to save his creatures from harm. The other characters including Tina, Queenie and Jacob play stellar roles, but several creatures, including the Niffler, are sure to make people watch the movie more than once! Needless to say, the struggle of good versus evil is highlighted well, and although a few scenes may be a tad violent for young fans, it’s certainly worth every penny. <br /><br /><h4>Click Buy Now with 1-Click to Own Your Copy Today!</h4><br /><b>Please note:</b> This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.
