5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and effective techniques to fight depression
I've suffered from depression most of my adult life and in that time have been fighting it on numerous fronts: Antidepressants, exercise, dietary changes, CBT and of course enough self help books to start a small shop on the subject. But all of these have only helped with some of the symptoms, none have really cured my depression and none have gone to the heart of it and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Link To mp3 audio downloads should be made crystal clear from the start?
I've purchased two versions of this book for Kindle having read some very promising reviews of the contents, only to stumble across a few reviews which complained of the thing being pointless without the C.D.

As usual, contacting Amazon came up with a very quick refund for the basic edition and I downloaded the "enhanced," edition, not fully understanding that...

This review is from: Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world (Paperback)
Amazing how we can live our lives in a rush not paying attention what is around us. This book can help you to find peace where there has always been; within you. A must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars ok with a competent guide, 20 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world (Paperback)
I bought this book at the advice of the coordinator of a course I am doing at U3A London. The course is called Mindfulness and targets people with concerns re anxiety, memory loss and other problems. The co ordinator has a background in counselling and perhaps psychiatry and directs reading plus dvd listening while not imposing his guidelines. Without a guide the disc is in itself a good guide to relaxation techniques. I find it most helpful. The course lasts 8 weeks with a 4 week lead in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 7 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is easy to read and full of straight forward information on how our minds work and how to be in the moment a lot more of the time and therefore happier. The 8 week programme is easy to fit into your life and really helps to integrate mindfullness on a daily basis. I love it.

This review is from: Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world (Paperback)
This therapy does work. It is well worth consideration for those troubled for what ever reason. Note that the eight tracks on the CD are not the eight weeks of the course. Reference should be made to the book for which tracks to use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written and an excellent resource, 5 Feb 2012

The book is brilliant. One of the best ones that I have read on mindfulness.
However, I do have one gripe. I read this on Kindle for PC - no access to the guided meditations on CD that come with the print book. These are available with the Enhanced Kindle Edition, but only for the "i family", not for Kindle on PC.
Amazon should make these available as MP3 for all purchasers on Kindle or indicate quite clearly that if you don't buy the print book, you will miss out on all the audio content.
My 3 stars are not for the book, but for the lack of the audio content on the Kindle edition.

Don't just look at the cover, this is really worth buying and being read from cover to cover. Mindfulness is a great thing and so inspiring, I have read this book and will return to it over and over. The CD is a good bit of kit too!

4.0 out of 5 stars A serious and balanced practical guide to developing an attitude ..., 29 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world (Paperback)
A serious and balanced practical guide to developing an attitude towards life which is tranquil and receptive. This is not a light-weight "self-improvement book" but something much more substantial and holistic.
