A great book BUT......

I love Jon Kabat-Zinn and this is an excellent book. Also, I enjoyed his narration, HOWEVER, why oh why do audiobook producers add music to the narration??!! It always, (no I'm serious, ALWAYS) interferes/competes with the narration and sometimes makes it next to impossible to hear the WORDS being spoken. This is so aggravating to me. I don't play music when I read a book, why would I want to listen to music when I listen to a book? Apart from this completely distracting issue I recommend the audiobook based on what the author wrote, not the production. I suppose I'll have to buy the book as well so I can read the portions that I couldn't hear because of the music. It's really maddening.

Spiritual Direction: All 360 Degrees

Well, I have read D. T. Suzuki almost in toto, Dalai Lama, heard Victor Frankyl in person, (and for those who can stretch memory back to the 60's) heard Silvano Arietti in person, and now a young spiritual director pointed me to WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE YOU ARE. As the other reviewer said, "relaxing", but much more...a gate to the essence of meditative practice, MINDFULNESS, without fanfare, highly enjoyable, very accurate, evocative of your inner depth, centering, peaceful, positive, satisfying. A POINTER on the way. I listened to it once and found myself centered in a deeper meditative practice, and on the second listening, I find as much new as the first time: it unfolds. Highly recommended. I also liked HOW TO PRACTICE, and of course, PEBBLES AND PEARLS, or is it PEARLS AND PEBBLES? P.S. If you're ADD you'll love this books centering, concentrating, ordering effect. Great reading by the author!

Sweet but very short.

Very short audiobook but the essence is obviously in the message and this is insightful. Compared to his others, I'd say that this book provides more of an overview of mindfulness - an abbreviated guide perhaps better suited to those who are already on their way with their journey.

The music is beyond annoying. Got so fed up of it that the only beauty of it being short was not to hear this again (I totally realise the irony here given that I'm listening to a lesson on mindfulness).

Pipe music

A good if insubstantial book on mindfulness is let down by cliche, contradiction and pipe music. Chapter 3, the final chapter of the audiobook is painful to listen to, hence the short review. I feel like I wasted a credit.
