10% HAPPIER is a spiritual book for – and by – a person who would otherwise never have read a spiritual book.It is a serious and seriously funny look at both full consciousness and meditation as the next revolution in consumer health care.Dan Harris still believes the restless, relentless, impossible to satisfy voices in his head was one of his greatest assets.Otherwise, how can you climb up the ladder in an ultra-competitive field like new TV except through non-stop vigilance, twisting hands and hyper ?For some time, his strategy worked.Harris anchored the national broadcasts and covered the wars.Then he hit the brakes and had a real panic attack on the airwaves.What happened next was totally unpredictable.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 allowed him to tame the voice in his head: meditation.At first, he was deeply suspicious.He had long associated with bearded swami meditation and unwashed hippies.But when confronted with scientific evidence that a few minutes a day can literally rewire the brain to concentrate, happiness and reduced mounting reactivity, Harris took a deep dive.He spent years mixing with scientists, executives and Marines on the frontlines of a quiet revolution that has the potential to reshape society.He became a daily meditator and even found himself on a silent ten-day meditation retreat, which was at the same time the best and worst experience he had ever had.Harris’s life was not turned into a rainbow parade and unicorns, but he did gain a passion for daily meditation.While the book itself is a story of Dan’s conversion in the midst of the tormented and decidedly non-Zen universe of the newsroom, it ends with a section for beginners on how to start.
