Introduction

Life as an ABC News correspondent must feel pretty good, right? The pay is great and millions of people know your face and name.

But for author, journalist, and news co-anchor Dan Harris, the pressure can became too much. He experienced a panic attack while reporting live on national television.

Embarrassed, Harris was driven to self-reflection. There began his long journey into the science of stress, which in turn introduced him to mindfulness.

Although originally a skeptic himself, Harris eventually learned to tame his ego with the power of meditation. In his 2014 bestseller, he shares those lessons with us.
