In The Wall Street Journal, John Mulaney (the creator of the Fox sitcom “Mulaney.”), recommends Dan Harris’ book for 12 months of reading saying, “Let’s start with happiness. “10% Happier” by Dan Harris is an amazing personal story of how Mr. Harris learned to use meditation to calm the endless, distracting, sometimes menacing streams of thoughts that he and all of us have. A memoir about Mr. Harris’s fascinating career at ABC News would have been enough. His description of how meditation helped him cope with the stress and vertigo of this career takes the book to a whole other level.” Additionally, 10% Happier has been chosen as part of JetBlue’s new Fly-Fi program for the month of February.
