For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris's latest New York Times bestseller is a guide to meditation as a rational practice informed by neuroscience and psychology.

From Sam Harris, neuroscientist and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books, Waking Up is for the twenty percent of Americans who follow no religion but who suspect that important truths can be found in the experiences of such figures as Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history. Throughout this book, Harris argues that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow, and that how we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the quality of our lives.

Waking Up is part memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris--a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic--could write it.

spirituality without the institution
By: Antonius Nicholas Budi

Sam Harris is one of author i strongly disagree with. First of all, he dismissed all religion with a broad brush. Second, he has repeatedly attacked Judeo-Christian- Islam tradition specificaly to gain attention.

So imagine my surprise that this book lays out the foundation of his belief that some form of spirituality is useful, especially meditiation. I find his science dubious, but his approach insightful. 

If you are interested in being more spiritual as an atheist, this is the book for you. If you are insterested in history of mind-body-dualism, this is also the book for you
