  • 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
  • Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir

    Nightline anchor Dan Harris embarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds
    of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable.

    After having a nationally televised panic attack on Good Morning America, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A
    lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure, involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help
    guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing
    he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had both propelled him
    through the ranks of a hyper-competitive business and also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked
    his on-air freak-out.

    We all have a voice in our head. It’s what has us losing our temper unnecessarily, checking our email compulsively,
    eating when we’re not hungry, and fixating on the past and the future at the expense of the present. Most of us would
    assume we’re stuck with this voice – that there’s nothing we can do to rein it in – but Harris stumbled upon an
    effective way to do just that. It’s a far cry from the miracle cures peddled by the self-help swamis he met; instead,
    it’s something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation. After learning about research that
    suggests meditation can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, Harris took a
    deep dive into the underreported world of CEOs, scientists, and even marines who are now using it for increased calm,
    focus, and happiness.

    10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the
    bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.
