This review is from: Coming To Our Senses: Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness (Paperback)
There is a wealth of information contained in this book. Mercifully its divided into eight sections and each section is sub-divided into very readable chapters.

Anyone looking for a comprehensive guide to meditation or mindfulness practice could do a lot worse than read this book. However I found it quite tiresome in parts and the temptation to just plod along was ever present.This being the antithesis of mindfulness then maybe the point of the book is lost. I firmly believe that the material contained in this book is quite good but Jon Kabat Zinn lets it down with his long windedness and unnecessary self indulgence.

Escape the tendency to plod by using a pencil. I highlighted things that made a real impact, and my second reading, of just the highlights, is much less of a plod! He does know what he's talking about, I find, and there is some essential stuff here that I haven't seen elsewhere. Well worth reading (the highlights) again and again.
