Whether you're a Fortune 500 CEO or someone bogged down with a never-ending to-do list, the proven secret to being more effective and living a happier, healthier life is to hurry up and slow down, to unplug. Studies show that you can get more done - and do it better- by doing less, just by consciously unplugging for a few minutes each day and meditating. This revolutionary book by the founder and CEO of the groundbreaking LA-based meditation studio Unplug Meditation brilliantly simplifies this powerful practice and shows the overwhelmed and overworked how easy it is to unplug in order to relieve stress, regain focus, and recharge. This modernized approach to meditation will appeal to anyone, even if - especially if - you believe you have no time, you can't sit still, or that -it's just not you.- Schwartz debunks the common misperceptions about meditation, including the notion that you need to sit still for long periods of time, or that you need to -turn off your brain.- She also shares the life-changing benefits you will experience, the proven science of how meditation literally changes your brain, as well as easy techniques and tips to easily incorporate meditation into your daily life. From the Hardcover edition.

Quick Thoughts: Unplug was a really simple guide to Meditation. It totally nailed it in that aspect. I truly felt that her simple guide was something that I could totally do. That being said, for such a short book there is a LOT of repetitive information. I understand why: saying the same thing in different ways will totally resonate with different people. It just got a little old!

Narrated By Suze Yalof Schwartz / Length: 4 hrs and 18 mins


Suze did a great job narrating her own book. I think in non-fiction it really works when the subject matter expert is doing the narrating. They are able to highlight the things they want through their voice.

Part of my Read It, Rate It, File It, DONE! Review

  1. Too bad about the repetition because I like the message. I’ve always had a difficult time meditating in complete quiet (the pets ain’t having that ! lol) but I learned to do it in my own way and it works for me.
