Easy to read. Doesn't require belief in religion or new-age stuff,
This review is from: The Mindful Way Through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness (includes Guided Meditation Practices CD) (Paperback)
I have started reading this and doing the exercises since I deleloped a degenerative neurological condition
Its a shame the title and content focus so much on depression - it could equally well be titled
"The Easy Way Through All The Crp That Life Throws At You"
This book requires no belief in cosmixc energy, healing crystals, karma, re-incarnation, god or any other stuff that you may or may not believe in.
View it as a guide to thinking differently about problems and a set of exercises that help
I am a very 'down to earth' electrician and not interested in any new-age spiritual stuff (talk about energy flows and healing energy makes me ill!) or old style religion but I cannot rate this book highly enough as a means for learning an easier way through life.
I don't normally review anything or enthuse about stuff but this is exceptionally usefull
I hope this book helps you as much as it has helped me

Your review caught my eye. I wish you well with your health and hope the book will assist in that. I think I will buy it myself as I also suffer from a long term medical condition.

Hi there, just wanted to take a moment (at 5am - stressed to blazes, couldn't sleep), to say thanks for taking the time to write your no-nonsense review. A wonderfully down to earth, no bull description of the CD.
I loved your alternative title "An easy way to handle all the cr*p that life throws at you". I've read/listened one of his other books Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world, and I found it a great way get off the 24x7 roller coaster.
Your last line says "I hope this book helps you as much as it helped me". Well to date, at least 267 people agree, and have given you the "thumbs up".
That means me and 266 other people wish you well. Take care Oli.
All the very best,
