What do readers have to say about it?

“It’s a pleasure and a privilege to review Guy Windsor’s work on solo practice. Working from vast personal experience, understanding of multiple traditions centuries-old, and modern understanding of education, learning, and motivation, he has produced an extremely useful and approachable book on sustainable, healthy practice and its underpinnings. Starting from first principles, Guy takes you through the prerequisites for developing a practice, provides specifics to implement, then addresses barriers, all in a tone which invites and encourages. I whole-heartedly recommend this work to practitioners of any level”
