Sweeping away common misconceptions and neuromythology to open readers' eyes to the ways data has been distorted to sell mind-training methods, the authors demonstrate that beyond the pleasant states mental exercises can produce, the real payoffs are the lasting personality traits that can result. But short daily doses will not get us to the highest level of lasting positive change - even if we continue for years - without specific additions.

Interesting, insightful. Could be much shorter; at times sloppily written. :) Yet, good and important effort. :)

It's fascinating to see the progress of neuroscience in measuring the tradition of meditation and ancient paradigms of consciousness. As a long-term meditator who has also studied neuroscience, this work is an important scientific update to our knowledge. We are open to seeing how this gap is filled.
