10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works—A True Story
by Dan Harris
In 2004, Dan Harris, co-anchor of Nightline and the weekend editions of Good Morning America, suffered an on-air panic attack. It came in the aftermath of drug abuse, a health scare, and the incessant professional drive that was becoming a toxic force in his life. 10% Happier documents his journey toward greater peace and self-knowledge that began as he covered the ABC News religion beat and continued with his reluctant decision to try meditation, a practice that changed his life.
