"Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn eloquently explains the power of paying attention and increasing awareness. I strongly recommend this book for everyone who wants to begin healing [to] their life." (Dean Ornish, M.D.)
"Clear, useful and well read"
I have come across the author before during a course on stress management and decided to download this audio book. It is read by the author and he has a very pleasant easy-going voice and a great deal of experience in presenting this type of material. The result is that he gets the information across well.
As the concepts require thinking about, it is worth putting aside a bit of time to actually listen to the content: I found myself listening more than once and still enjoying it. Putting the concepts into practice is very rewarding.
All in all a very good listen / read
"a warm and informative book"
I chose this book after a recommend action from a friend. It was a great reflective way to spend a commute; reviewing past strategies for coping and. Finding new skills in coping. I would encourage all to read, particularly those who find it hard to relax.

Written in easy to understand language, Kabat-Zinn's philosophy is clear and enlightening. Full of practical exercises that are easy to achieve, if you read this book you will be well on your way to a stress free life. Highly recommended.
