10 % Happier ~ Dan Harris

This is the story of Dan Harris, Good Morning America's weekend host and how his life has been since having an anxiety attack on live TV.   I thought this book was going to be a Christian book, but be warned it is not, it is about meditation and Buddhism.  Dan tells his story of going to a retreat and how he learns to meditate to make himself happy.  I kept reading this book because I thought being from Litfuse  that Dan would find what true happiness is all about, GOD.  That never happens and this book is clearly not of my beliefs or values. 

I can not recommend this book as I do not believe that becoming happier comes from not believing in GOD.  GOD is my happiness and praying daily is my answer to a calmer life.  I was surprised that this book was so misleading by the cover and the description.
