Review

Intriguing, timely, and enjoyable new book, a fascinating account of the increasing adoption of these ancient oriental disciplines by western businesses as means of improving corporate efficiency, reducing employee stress, and, directly or indirectly, boosting the bottom line. (Financial Times)

Brimming with insights and backed up with solid research, Mindful Work takes us to the front lines of a revolution that is transforming the business world. (Arianna Huffington)

By far the most insightful, practical guide to mindfulness and meditation. Mindful Work could change your life. (Bill George, Harvard Business School Professor and author of True North)

A delightful, authoritative and provocative guide to the new world of mindfulness at work. Give this book your full attention. (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence)

Gelles has done a masterful job of capturing the 'mindfulness movement'. His candid analysis and his dialogue with people from all facets of this movement paint a wonderfully clear view of a potent proposition for living and working in better ways. (Scott Kriens, Chairman, Juniper Networks and Director of 1440 Foundation)

In this compelling book, Gelles describes how apparent paradoxes can resolve into a business culture where taking a breath is part of making a buck. (Sherry Turkle, author of 'Alone Together')

Gelles deftly shows the power of mindfulness to change individuals, businesses and our world for the better. Cultivating mindfulness is a practice that we need to embrace, and we cannot be afraid to follow this path. (Marc Benioff, Chairman & CEO, Salesforce)

In this wise and revealing work, David Gelles explains how Eastern wisdom is transforming the Western workplace. Smart, hopeful and inspiring, this is a book with a wide reach and a clear focus (Mark Epstein, author of 'The Trauma of Everyday Life' and 'Thoughts without a Thinker: Psychotherapy from a Buddhist Perspective')

This carefully researched, heartfully written, and delightfully readable book tells one of the most interesting true stories of our time: the fascinating and sometimes messy coming together of the wisdom world and the corporate world. (Chade-Meng Tan, Jolly Good Fellow of Google, and bestselling author of 'Search Inside Yourself')

An intriguing, timely, and enjoyable new book [and] a fascinating account of the increasing adoption of these ancient oriental disciplines by western businesses as means of improving corporate efficiency, reducing employee stress, and, directly or indirectly, boosting the bottom line.

Gelles has both an initiate's appreciation of how meditation works, and a journalist's objectivity and ability to tell a story.

(Felix Martin)
