Prof Gilbert's curious mixture of neuropsychology with Buddhist thought was exactly what I needed when I felt 'stuck' in my therapeutic process. Some people can just get on with it - others need to understand what's going on in their mind, before being able to fix it. I'm among the latter. In explaining how evolution shaped our brains, and how traumatic experiences can set up very deep interactions with the oldest and most basic instincts, he unlocked the secrets of why I continue(d) to feel inappropriately strong reactions to certain things. He went on to explain why he chose the Buddhist values of compassionate wisdom to nourish the 'new' brain and calm the 'old'. I will be working the exercises in this book for life; it's that good!

There are many other, less taxing, books and CDs for compassionate mindfulness, which may suit most others. There are also one or two that expound the science even more thoroughly. I hope I've helped readers to decide whether Gilbert's approach is right for them, as for me.

As a recently qualified therapist, I decided to read a little around Compassion Focused Therapy and came across the work of Paul Gilbert. Then I found this book and I am elated that I did, it was longer than I expected, 500 pages but that only makes ir even better value for money.
As an introduction, this book is fantastic and relevant. It has enspired me, both personally and professional as a therapist. It benefits from being well writen and well-informed so if you are looking to do a little self development or simply fancy an easy, interesting read on Compassion and how to bring it into your life- this is the book for you. I was sad to finish it and will certainly be purchasing more of Paul Gilbert's books.

Brilliant, a must read for anyone interested in mental health. I am a mental health nurse and was recommended the author by a psychologist. I am interested in compassion and mindfulness for using with individuals with a diagnosis of Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The ideas are not necessarily a new concept but the book is easy to read and follow and implement into practice.
