It answers the questions, 24 July 2009
The book is an easy to follow read with exercises to complete throughout and the eight week full programme at the end of the book. I found this format informative as many questions which pop into your head are answered before you start to programme proper, therefore allowing you to get the full benefit. It reinforces throughout that this is not a 'miracle cure' but a process which can be built upon to gain a better understanding of depression and the associated symptoms. The authors are obviously experts in their fields, though they write in a non-jargon, non-academic way. I have investigated Mindfulness via other books, however this is the most informative and helpful. An excellent book for anyone who is/has suffered from depression, or for anyone who knows someone with depression.
