Review

"One of the great classics of mind/body medicine . . . More than any other, "Full Catastrophe Living" is the book that enabled Americans to discover the inner life. This book has brought peace of mind to hundreds and thousands of people and healed countless lives. This is your chance to let it heal yours."--Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., author of "Kitchen Table Wisdom"

"A wonderful guidebook for those of us who choose life and healing . . . I hope you all make that choice and read the book."--Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of "Love, Medicine & Miracles"

"Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn eloquently explains the power of paying attention and increasing awareness. I strongly recommend this book for everyone who wants to begin healing their life."--Dean Ornish, M.D., author of "Dr. Dean Ornish's Program for Reversing Heart Disease"

To say that this wise, deep book is helpful to those who face the challenges of human crisis would be a vast understatement. It is essential, unique, and, above all, fundamentally healing. Donald M. Berwick, M.D., president emeritus and senior fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement

I first read Full Catastrophe Living in my early twenties and it changed my life. Chade-Meng Tan, Jolly Good Fellow of Google and author of Search Inside Yourself
Jon Kabat-Zinn s classic work on the practice of mindfulness to alleviate stress and human suffering stands the test of time, a most useful resource and practical guide. I recommend this new edition enthusiastically to doctors, patients, and anyone interested in learning to use the power of focused awareness to meet life s challenges, whether great or small. Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Spontaneous Happiness and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health
How wonderful to have a new and updated version of this classic book that invited so many of us down a path that transformed our minds and awakened us to the beauty of each moment, day-by-day, through our lives. This second edition, building on the first, is sure to become a treasured sourcebook and traveling companion for new generations who seek the wisdom to live full and fulfilling lives. Diana Chapman Walsh, Ph.D., president emerita of Wellesley College
In this brilliant and comprehensive book, Jon Kabat-Zinn shares the depth of his meditation experience and the breadth of its application in the world. Through concise and extremely pragmatic meditation exercises, the wealth of science explaining the benefits, and the many compelling personal stories, Full Catastrophe Living offers the way to a balanced and mindful life. Joseph Goldstein, author of Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening and One Dharma: The Emerging Western Buddhism
This book challenges each American to slow down and pay attention to the power of their own mind and the impact it has on our physical and emotional health. By actively participating in your own health and wellness you will, by extension, increase the health and wellness of our country. As Jon Kabat-Zinn teaches us how to heal our body and boost our immune system, we can actively contribute to the healing of our body politic and strengthen our nation s ability to attack the many challenges of our time. Join us in this quiet revolution! It has the potential to transform our country from the inside out, one courageous American at a time. Congressman Tim Ryan, 13th district, Ohio, author of A Mindful Nation"
