Downloaded the 3 hour abridged version in Oct 2001 and found it helpful and interesting. The book gave an excellent account of how to recognize and deal with the powers of instinct. To recognize, as author puts it "schema behavior" is the essential first step in dealing with the behavior. I still think of the book often when confronting my own reactions and the reactions of others. Based upon the reviews posted above though, I guess there wasn't much to gain from listening to the 11 extra hours in the unabridged version.

Terrific perspective on the effectiveness of using mindfulness meditation when dealing with schemas as they relate to thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The book addresses individuals using the methods on their own to improve themselves, or in counseling by combining the techniques with psychotherapy, or use within relationships with a partner or friend. It also offers it as a way to understand the thinking, emotions and behaviors of others through understanding their schemas. The voice of the narrator was pleasant to listen to, and I enjoyed the book from beginning to end.
