Simply Awake is a power packed jolt of lucid teaching that covers the whole spiritual path from A to Z. Jonathan is very generous in offering his own rich experience and insight which comes through each word with clarity and passionate intention to awaken the reader. His enthusiasm is infectious and provokes the reader consistently from start to finish. He has the keen ability to grasp the essence of a practice or Dharma point and then bring it out in a simple and informing way that integrates and clears up a lot of confusion. A very good book that will inform and nourish.
