I cannot recommend this highly enough as an accessible, effective antidote to anxiety, panic and other stress-related disorders (Dr Cecilia d'Felice The Times)
A true breakthrough in the area of behavioural medicine and self control If you are looking for the best available book on this topic, this is it! Alan Marlatt, PhD Professor of Psychology, Director of the Addictive Behaviours Research Centre, University of Washington. In the fifteen years since its initial publication, Full Catastrophe Living has sold over 400,000 copies worldwide. It has established itself both as an excellent beginner's guide to meditation and as the bible for a mind/body movement that has transformed Western medicine. This practical, step-by-step meditation guide is based on a revolutionary eight-week programme called mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), which stress-relief and meditation expert Jon Kabat-Zinn created at the world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Boston. This fifteenth anniversary edition includes a new introduction along with an expanded bibliography and resources section.See all Product description

I have found this useful for dealing with depression due to bereavement and other personal issues. I started with reading "The Mindful Way Through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness" which includes a useful CD (by Kabat-Zinn) but this book goes into a bit more detail.
I would recommend this book to anybody who isn't completely happy with their lives. It does not provide a solution just a way of dealing with life as it is.
The approach is not hard to understand and with a bit of structure it is not difficult to master. The practical guidance Jon provides makes it so much easier
I got his audio version of this book too. The two together works really well for me.
The Edited version is a great improvement on the first edition. This is an excellent book and I could highly recommend it to anyone coping with Anxiety, Stress or Depression, or for the Professional Therapist using Mindfulness Techniques to aid their work.
