Relaxing into Meditation : Review by Dan Hersam

"I'm reasonably seasoned at meditation yet I learned plenty from this book. It clarifies the distinction between relaxing and meditating, which isn't immediately obvious until you start your practice. You can't meditate until you've first relaxed, and the early portion of the book describes various ways to get yourself into a relaxed state. We're all different, so having options allows you to choose the method that works best for you. The line drawings are sufficient for illustrating the methods or postures described.

This is the kind of book I wish I had when I first started meditating. For a short book it covers a surprising amount, from methods of breathing, relaxation and meditation to meditation cushions. The glossary caps things off, defining the common nomenclature of Tibetan Buddhism. ( )"
