    The 1 New York Times Bestseller.,”An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation.”???Elizabeth Gilbert,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.

    Workers in the United States are losing sleep. In the global economy a growing number of employees hold jobs–often more than one at once–with unpredictable hours.
