#1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the 2014 'Inspirational Memoir' category at the Living Now book awards. 10% HAPPIER is a spiritual book written for - and by - someone who would otherwise never read a spiritual book. This fifth anniversary edition features a new preface and new guided meditations from his favourite teachers, including Joseph Goldstein and Sharon Salzberg. After having a nationally televised panic attack, Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong non-believer, he found himself on a bizarre adventure and realised that the sources of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a strange series of events - Harris stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: meditation. At first, he was deeply suspicious, but when confronted with mounting scientific evidence that just a few minutes a day can literally rewire the brain for focus, happiness and reduced reactivity, Harris took a deep dive. He became a daily meditator, and even found himself on a ten-day, silent meditation retreat. 10% Happier is a narrative account of Dan's conversion amid the harried and decidedly non-Zen world of the newsroom and concludes with a section for the beginner on how to get started. 'I loved it' - Ruby Wax 'A wonderful book and excellent advice.' - Andy Puddicombe, founder of Headspace 'An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite a personal look at the benefits of meditation' - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love

A sceptic's guide to meditation. With great humour he goes into it kicking and resisting and ends up embracing mindfulness and explaining it brilliantly, while never losing that humour or becoming part of the 'socks and sandals' brigade - I loved it - Ruby Wax, author of Sane New World With a healthy dose of scepticism and humour, Dan Harris skilfully demystifies meditation, reminding us all that a healthy and happy mind is not only essential for our own sanity, but also for those around us. More importantly, he provides a compelling invitation to move beyond words, from the idea to the experience. A wonderful book and excellent advice - Andy Puddicombe, founder of Headspace An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation that offers new insights as to how this ancient practice can help modern lives while avoiding the pitfall of cliche. This is a book that will help people, simply put. I know a lot of very powerful, very stressed-out, type-A personalities who will be getting this book from me as a gift this year. - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love With startling, provocative, and often very funny candor, Dan Harris tells the story of why he urgently needed to tame the strident voice in his head, and how he did it. His argument for the power of mindfulness-which he bases both on cutting-edge science and his own hard-won experience-will convince even the most skeptical reader of meditation's potential. - Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
