5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book on mindfulness - sold short on it's link with depression - can help with so much more., 7 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression: A New Approach to Preventing Relapse (Hardcover)
fantastic book on mindfulness - sold short on it's link with depression - can help with so much more.
Of course this book is great for anyone suffering depression - although the emphasis is on preventing relapse as opposed to cure or even treatment during an episode. The same mechanisms operate in anxiety, discontent and all manner of frustration intolerance. I would recommend to anyone - mindfulness will give great benefits to those who aren't suffering from any malady - it's not just a retroactive treatment - it's prevention and even actualization as well. I would also recommend HOW TO LIVE IN THE HERE AND NOW by Paul Jones.

Point well made that it is excellent as a starter for Mindfulness as a concept, better written and more concise than Kabat-Zinn's works. Also that it is an aid to wellness as well as a treatment for disorders.
