Publisher's Summary

Everyday life is so frantic and full of troubles that we have largely forgotten how to live a joyful existence. We try so hard to be happy that we often end up missing the most important parts of our lives. In Mindfulness, Oxford professor Mark Williams and award-winning journalist Danny Penman reveal the secrets to living a happier and less anxious, stressful, and exhausting life.
Based on the techniques of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, the unique program developed by Williams and his colleagues, this book offers simple and straightforward forms of mindfulness meditation that can be done by anyone—and it can take just 10 to 20 minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed.

Missing a written outline for the 8 week program

Any additional comments?

Really good content - but VERY hard to follow up and practice the detailed steps for the 8 week program. It would be so simple for the authors/publisher to include an 8 page pdf - a single page outline for each of the weekly steps. I was going to gift this audiobook to a friend, but not w/o the written support materials. Too bad ;-(

Buy the book

Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

yes, the authors are great, and i believe the program is very helpful. but the format in which it was presented isnt helpful without the book. this should be a companion audio for the book, rather than a standalone item.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mindfulness?

I would make it follow the book precisely. organize it into chapters instead of small tidbits. make it whispersync ready, and connect it to the book.


Any additional comments?

I really wouldnt advise anyone to get this audiobook unless they have the print or kindle book and use this as a companion guide only.
