bodom said: I have it and could not finish reading it all the way through due to all of the gramatical errors. Made it almost unreadable for me. I dont know what happened with the eiting but it is really bad. Very surpring coming from wisdom pubs who usually produces top knotch reads. I have consulted quite a few different copies and they all contain the same errors. I was extremely dissapointed as Mindfulness in plain english is one of my all time fave meditation manuals.
Hello bodom, all,
I bought this book earlier in the week on the way back from India, at a bookshop in Bangkok Airport. It is said to be "An Introductory Guide to Deeper States of Meditation". It is the Wisdom edition and is edited by John Peddicord. It has top ratings by Joseph Goldstein, Ajahn Amaro, Matthew Flickstein, Shaila Catherine, Sharon Salzberg, Noah Levine, and Guy Armstong. I have just begun to delve into it, only read a chapter or two, but do not find any problems with the editing. The book seemed to be of the same standard as Bhante Gunaratana's previous books on Mindfulness.
Could you give some page numbers and examples of what bothered you?
Has anyone else read this book?
