    "Get some headspace"

    Andy Puddicombe is the star that shines above the blue skies.
    If you are having trouble with depression, or trouble sleeping, this could be your answer.
    Andy has a personality and a way with words that helps you to understand although the bad stuff will always be there, it doesn't have to control youf life.
    Andy uses his own life's exleriences to walk you through mindfulness.
    His journey as a trainee monk takes you gently with him on his learning path as he seeks to quieten his mind and come to terms with past experiences.
    Andy does not preach, he doesn't say you have to do this or that, he explains using analogies and stories how to manage feelings of depression and says there will be relapses but using mindfulness, these can be dealt with.
    Each to their own; for me, Andy seems to make sense. He is not pretentious and is easy to listen to. I'm glad I found him.

    "Headspace Ace"

    This audio book has been a revelation. I listened to it at a time when I was deeply distressed and it really made a difference. Developing mindfulness is an essential life skill and I'm sure in some cases a life saver!

    "Good introduction to meditation"

    This audiobook provides an excellent non-mystical basis for meditation, more akin to helping your outlook on life and helping in specific areas (sleep, eating etc). A number of interesting anecdotes along the way too.

    "A good no-nonsense guide to meditation"

    No new-age mumbo-jumbo. Good, straightforward advice and instruction on how to meditate and how to be mindful. I'm now a daily meditator and it's made a world of difference.

    "I loved this audio book!"

    What a great book and I am totally in love with Andy's voice! The emphasis he puts on certain words and the way you can hear him smiling. I think this is life changing and I'd recommend it to anyone.
