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.
