Harris and his friend Jeff Warren, a masterful teacher and Meditation MacGyver, embark on a cross-country quest to tackle the myths, misconceptions, and self-deceptions that stop people from meditating. They rent a rock-star tour bus (whose previous occupants were Parliament Funkadelic) and travel across eighteen states, talking to scores of would-be meditatorsincluding parents, military cadets, police officers, and even a few celebrities. They create a taxonomy of the most common issues (I suck at this, I dont have the time, etc.) and offer up science-based life hacks to help people overcome them.
