Title: Calm Amid Chaos - An Executive Guide To Reducing Stress Through Meditation
Author: Charles Graybar
Publisher: Serenity Hill Press
Category: Non-fiction / Management / Self Help
"Calm Amid Chaos - An Executive Guide To Reducing Stress Through Meditation" is a practical guide to meditation by Charles Graybar. The book is authentic in that it is written by a man who himself has been a successful business executive and who thus understands the pressures and pains of the average American Business Executive / Leader. That he failed several times to meditate and finally succeeded should give all of us who fail to meditate (including this reviewer), the perseverence to persist and succeed.
Most of the meditation practices described by Charles Graybar (Chuck to his friends) are based on eastern approaches. But they don't demand any change in the religious beliefs of the meditators and thus the book should be acceptable to people of all faiths.
The book's editing left a lot to be desired. Fortunately, the author's message comes through with little distortion.
If you have been looking for a simple, practical guide to help you learn meditation, this is for you.
