About the Author:

Sylvia Boorstein, teaches mindfulness and leads retreats across the United States. She is a co-founding teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, California, and a senior teacher at the Insight Meditation Center in Barre, Massachusetts. Boorstein is also a practicing psychotherapist. Her previous books are It's Easier Than You Think: The Buddhist Way to Happiness and Don't Just Do Something, Sit There. She lives with her husband, Seymour Boorstein, a psychiatrist. They have two sons, two daughters, and five grandchildren.

From AudioFile:

In IT'S EASIER THAN YOU THINK, Boorstein delivers a primer on Buddhism, exploring the path to happiness through the Buddha's basic teachings and stressing ways to eliminate hindrances to clear seeing. Her personal stories color the teachings with humor, perception and love. Her presentation is pleasant and heartfelt, the voice of the kindly Jewish grandmother bodhisattva, as she's known in meditation circles. The program has the feel of kitchen table wisdom and concludes with an interesting interview by Michael Toms. P.B.J. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
