5.0 out of 5 stars Practical advice, 24 Dec 2013
Useful practical activities included that readers can have a go at to heal their shame, as well as all the explanations. One of my favourite parts of the book was a section on how to deal with other people who may be trying to dump their shame onto you. A brilliant selection of techniques to recognise and deal with people like this are offered.

I did not mind the general religious references as I just saw them as the author writing honestly in his own style and I did not feel they were excessive - still felt the book contained things that would be of value to most people. Some other readers may differ in their reactions to any religious references.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, clear and compassionate, 23 July 2010
As well as being useful to those who are recovering from depression, this book is also useful to anyone who wants to learn how to live a richer and more balanced life. It has been written in a clear and compassionate way, with descriptions of practical techniques, poems, stories and real examples from everyday life that anyone can relate to. Despite all this, it doesn't have a patronizing tone.

Mindfulness isn't an easy thing to learn for most people, but the authors write in an encouraging way and make it manageable by requesting the reader to adopt the techniques bit by by into their everyday life.
