The other two reviewers are missing the point with this book! The clue is in the title! Yes, its obvious that is about philosophical background to the principles of the practice: hence 'heavy' reading. Meaning: perspective: change.
If you want to have a better understanding of the roots and meaning behind the practice then look no further (supported also by many evidence based journal articles and research). If you want to be spoon fed and have a instant coffee attitude to the practice then you obviously don't get it in the first place!

This is a MUST if you're teaching Mindfulness-based Interventions, and I have heard Jon Kabat-Zinn recommend this book on several occasions. It will give you a thorough understanding of the Dhamma/buddhist psychology behind MBSR/MBCT etc. One way to work with the articles is to use it in your sangha/supervision group, if you have one.

I found this book good but heavy going.
it's only good for you if you are interested in the theory and research of Mindfulness practice.

Sometimes I wish that western Mindfulness-practitioners spend more time meditating and less time trying to validate why they're doing it!
