Starts Strong But Loses Reader Along The Way
I requested this book after really enjoying the excerpt. Muscara begins with an engaging and personable and relatable "every man" attitude. He shares his own beginnings and gradual self education in what works for him. And that was important to me -- meditation is not the same for any two people: what it does for you as well as how it makes you feel or influences your life. But after this engaging start the book quickly devolves into woo woo pseudoscience and unsubstantiated therapy from a self described privileged white guy who admits to having never held any real job. For instance, at one point Muscara dives deep into trauma and its effects. With what authority he brings these teachings, I am not sure. And it seems he wonders, too, because the backpedaling begins not too much later.
