I got this book for less than $8 at Barnes and Noble, in hardcover. It is the tenth anniversary edition. It is worth so much more. As one of my friends put it, I did a great job of advertising Barnes and Noble in my video My Sex Life.
I really don’t need to say much about it, other than everyone should read it. It is about mindfulness and meditation, from an expert on the topic. Jon Kabat-Zinn is a Ph.D, and has been an authority on mindfulness for some time. I first became aware of him when I read “The Mindful Way Through Depression”, which I discussed briefly when I added this new section on reviews. He uses mindfulness to treat many mental health issues as well as chronic pain.
The book is excellent. The topics are short, usually from two to three pages, but with a few at one page and a few more at up to six pages. I would do a reading in the morning before meditating. I got through the whole book reading minimally like this in a couple of months, learned a great deal, and certainly was able to apply some of the suggestions to my meditation and mindfulness practice.
The best book I’ve read on mindfulness and meditation. Nothing more really needs to be said.
