This is an excellent, comprehensive and very readable self-help book beautifully brought together which explains the benefits of mindfulness perfectly. I would thoroughly recommend it and would suggest it as the best starting point if you have an interest in the subject.

This is an excellent book. Often books of this nature can be dry and soul-less, but this is just the opposite. It covers all areas of mindfulness and is an excellent beginners handbook. I found it very well designed and easily readable too. Well done to the Author(s).

I saw this book advertised as Silverton and Kabat-Zinn and to be honest, it was the 'big name' that attracted me to the book. I was disappointed at first to find that his contribution was only a foreword. However, I did not at all regret reading the book. Silverton writes in clear and accessible style. She comes across as passionately humanistic without being patronising and her stories, exercises and examples are very useful. I recommend the book.

This is a very practical guide for those coping with emotional distress.Valuable advice also for parenting using mindfulness as a tool.

While the text seems useful I just wanted to warn those intending to purchase on kindle that some of the diagrams are completely unreadable due to microscopic text in the large diagrams.
Possibly these could be read on the Kindle for PC version.
I would also add that "fully illustrated" means a few summary diagrams made into something more visual in the first chapters and images of the stretches etc. So there is a diagram showing the major tension points in the body - an outline of the body with a handful of dots in vaguely anatomical positions. A bullet pointed list would have done the same job really...
This to me is nothing special compared to other self-help guides to mindfulness - so I think the claim of 'the first fully illustrated guide' is rather overblown. I was expecting a book littered with helpful diagrams - I learn visually so this sounded very interesting. A better description is 'occasional illustrations in many chapters with necessary illustrations of the yoga poses and stretches'.

Hence the average review.

Interesting & accessible way into to Mindfulness. Content good but let down by the paper it's printed on - it's very heavy!
Not good for dipping into to

I bought this book to help with my anxiety. I have other mindfulness books and the way this book was marketed I thought it would be specific for anxiety and depression but unfortunately it wasn't. Just a few pages on anxiety which had nothing new in it or meditations specific to the condition. Its a pretty colourful book but didn't give me much help. I preferred other books such a finding peace in a frantic world. Not so colourful but lots of information although not anxiety specific.
