    Hi

    In this book you will learn how to do four different types of meditations as well as learn a little about each one and meditation in general.

    In this book you will learn four different meditation techniques, along with information about each technique and about meditation in general.

    "four different" sounds redundant to me. I'd go with one or the other, but it could just be a style thing.

    Good point, unless they're very different to each other in an important way. However, if they are just four meditation techniques, then that is indeed all that needs to be said.
