"Wisdom, illuminated and applied! We could ask for nothing more from three of the world's most gifted and caring clinicians, who provide us with a clear and practical guide to understanding and strengthening the mind. This workbook is a generous gift that can help you relieve depression and anxiety, improve your health, and enhance your way of being in the world."--Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of Mindsight
"Fantastic….[It] functions as a trusted friend, counselor, and guide."--from the Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD
"What could be more fabulous than this? An evidence-based treatment for depression translated into a workbook that everyone can use. This is a treatment that has circled the globe for a reason--it works. Fortunately, the authors who translated the treatment into a workbook are the very people who developed the treatment in the first place; all three are expert clinicians and scientists. My advice: 'Try this.'"--Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Therapy Clinics, University of Washington
"Three of the world's leading authorities on psychotherapy and mindfulness have developed a workbook of great clarity and value. It outlines an easy-to-follow, step-by-step program for how to train our minds out of repetitive loops and find states of peace."--Paul Gilbert, PhD, Head, Mental Health Research Unit, University of Derby, United Kingdom
"The strategies in this book have truly changed my life. I feel a thousand times better today than ever before. Like anyone else, I still get sad and anxious sometimes, but it happens much less frequently and I'm better equipped to deal with it. I definitely plan to continue practicing mindfulness for the long term."--Alain K.

The reader is taken on a logical progression through exercises, anecdotes and most importantly, accompanying meditations.
I found the audio content particularly engaging and highly recommend that people also check out John Teasdale's other content on mindful org.
The CD that comes with the book is an MP3 CD, this is mentioned in the description but unless you have a new player, it won't play on regular/older CD players. You can put the disc that comes with the book on to your computer and play them that way or the book also links to a website where you can download the tracks to your computer or other portable device, so you can still have access to them.
There is a particularly useful track on the CD for 'Sitting with Difficult emotions', and as someone who is recently bereaved this book and meditations that come with it REALLY help.
Superb book, I took ages to buy it given the cost, but 'If the drugs don't work' as the song says, and you or someone you know is struggling, get this book, it could change your life!!
Get this book if you are feeling stressed and don't want medication, just to learn ways to relax and look at life in a different way. Even the simplest of things it suggests make massive differences.
I highly recommend it and wish it had been around 10 years ago!
