I always listen to the audio sample of each meditation book before I buy it, because I don’t like gimmicky “mood” music playing in the background, as if I were at a spa for a facial. This one fooled me because the audio sample was from the lecture part of the book, which doesn’t have the background music that plays during the guided meditations. It’s a flute solo, like meditating with a whining mosquito in the room.
