    I really enjoyed the quiet, calm tones of the author and the the theory section which was put together well and actually quite interesting. I really got a lot out of doing the meditations and they are well narrated and sufficiently explained to allow the listener to get a lot out of them. My only real gripe with the book is it's formatting. It is really hard to go from the theory to the meditation without either spending ages putting in bookmarks (which don't seem to then sync across my devices and I have to do it again!) or just going to and from with the player controls in the vague hope you hit on the right one.

Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

    Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.

    Why is it easier to ruminate over hurt feelings than it is to bask in the warmth of being appreciated? Because your brain evolved to learn quickly from bad experiences but slowly from the good ones. You can change this. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. Dr. Hanson's four steps build strengths into your brain, balancing its ancient negativity bias, making contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal.
