I have read it about 6 times since the first time that I read it. If you really try to understand some of Bo lozcroffs books then you really can live a more peaceful life. This book is an introduction to eastern thought somewhat comparable to Be Here Now.
Compared to Be Here Now , Bo doesn't have the same voice. Bo is lacking the loving, enlightened voice of Ram Dass or Jack Kornfield. Don't get me wrong Bo's actions are very loving and my bias towards a certain emotional tone doesn't contraindicate this book.
On the other hand, this book has some very good exercises not found in comparable books. While I see the purpose for this, it doesn't add much value for me. I might buy this for the exercises, but beyond that there are better introduction to eastern thought books. Feb 25, James rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone.

I read this for the first time when I was working as a psychotherapist in the Penitentiary of N A powerful book that has helped many seemingly lost souls turn their lives around. I read this for the first time when I was working as a psychotherapist in the Penitentiary of New Mexico in Santa Fe, the place infamous for the riot. The state had bought crates and crates of copies, in English and Spanish, and was distributing them free of charge to anyone who wanted them, inmates or staff.
I found some of the content useful both for myself and for some of my inmate clients, and was disappointed that most of the other staff weren't interested enough to read it. I would recommend this to anyone as an adjunct to any other spiritual seeking they might be doing. Apr 12, Malcolm Ivey rated it it was amazing.

Doing Time on the Outside
Bo Lozoff is one of my most favorite writers on Meditation, because he breaks it down into simple steps for the beginner. I discovered him when I first read this book in prison.

If I plan to keep a book and re-read it, I will give it five stars. I love the work that Bo Lozoff did with inmates and love that he continues to do it even from the grave.

People aged 60 and over are now the fastest growing age group in the prison estate. Good practice exists and can be spread but work with older people in prison is not being properly supported by government and too often depends on the goodwill and enthusiasm of individual staff, according to the report we will publish this week.
Placing women at the center of analysis, she suggests, has a profound impact on the way we thing about historical periods. As a result, feminist theory is helping to reshape our vision of both the modern and the postmodern. Her thoughtful and savvy essays raise the debate about modernity and postmodernity to a new level of sophistication. Doing Time dissects some of the major intellectual quandaries of our time with quiet passion, astute thoroughness, and admirable clarity. In fact, the perspective it opens challenges some of the most usual commonplaces of the contemporary feminist debate.
Impelled by a scepticism that is at once bracing and generous, this is a work of sanity, tenderness, and hope.
