I love this book! It suited me perfectly. An easy read,I found it was a complete breath of fresh air, given that Mindfulness has become so popular and has had so many words written about it. It gives simple directions and inspiration for managing painful emotions like anger and worry, and provides straightforward exercises which anybody can practice, becoming aware of what you are doing, thinking and feeling. No long courses required! It could be said this is the perfect beginner's guide, but on the other hand, it is also a remedy and a reminder for long time practitioners or meditators who need to become uncomplicated again in their practice and purpose, each day. It's basically a book for everyone.The author's colloquial style makes everyday mindfulness very accessible.I can dip into it again and again, have it on the bedside table, in my bag, whatever. Like a lovely, calming, clear companion, it nudges you back step-by-step to the here and now, a place you really do know but have just forgotten, to appreciate Life, and breathe again. A great buy and a great "present" for anyone.
