I bought this on a whim, because I was already placing an order and thought this sounded like something I could benefit from. I tend to get very frustrated when I am driving, and also find myself not really being mindful and kind of operating on auto-pilot.
I didn't really have any expectations for this cd, but I was really pleasantly surprised by it. I have a very short daily commute, and I wasn't sure if it would be tailored for people with longer ones, but it is beneficial to anyone who drives.
Sylvia has a very calming voice and her tone is pleasant and conversational. She checks in on your mood several times through the program and tells a few stories to illustrate her points.
Overall, I think it is a really excellent cd and is exactly what I was looking for. It has been really helpful to me as far as being more mindful and present while driving goes, and by focusing on being mindful I don't feel as frustrated when someone else cuts me off or does something crazy on the road.
This is a cd everyone who drives should own, and I think I'll buy more copies as gifts!

I love this CD. I have listened to it so many times that I know it by heart. Yet I still pop it in when I'm feeling anxious and Sylvia Boorstein's soothing voice helps me feel calm. I keep hoping she will make more CDs of this type. I love her wisdom and humorous, lightherted approach. Thanks so much.
