    A book designed to help you focus, in a world moving at breakneck speed. It is perhaps a little long winded at times. The exercises are meant to help you form a habit, reinforcing what we already know but do not routinely practice. If you are willing to invest the time both in the book and in yourself, this is a life tool to help you accomplish that.

    A brilliant book about mindfulness. I read every single page but it's written in a way that if you want to read it differently you can. The audio tracks are downloaded from a website and although I have only followed along with a few they work well for me. A brilliant book about mindfulness.

    This one's a keeper. Think of this book, not as an informational resource among others, but as your manual of mindfulness. I haven't read that many things about meditation and mindfulness, but I've read some. So far, for my Western mindset, I would go as far as to say this book is not a manual, but THE Manual of mindfulness. Why? Well, because: 1. It tells you exactly why you should do what it recommends. And we all know that us westerners are not that big on belief without proof or scientific back This one's a keeper.

It teaches you how every kind of mindfulness meditation works and you get to practice all of them. 3. I've seen some improvements for myself, and this is the first time I felt mindfulness working. 4. It's based on a clinical stress reduction program started by Jon Kabat-Zinn. Now, regarding point 4, I've actually read a bit about this subject and came across some interesting information about Jon Kabat-Zinn's work done at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He actually went to study meditation with Buddhist teachers and helps organize dialogues between the Dalai Lama and Western scientists. I kind of like his work. Long story short, it's a really good book. The improvements, like all good things in life, don't come in an instant, but you can feel them when they do. I'm actually going through the 8 week course for the second time at the present moment. If you're stressed, anxious or just have an interest in mindfulness, read it and practice it. It really helps!

    A little bit too repetitive for me. I feel like a majority of it was the same concept over and over. Nevertheless sometimes things need to be repeated a few times, until we get the message. “Mindfulness is correlated with emotional intelligence, which itself has been associated with good social skills, ability to cooperate and ability to see another person’s perspective.” “Running an automatic-pilot routine can be like opening a new window in a computer.

Nevertheless sometimes things need to be repeated a few times, until we get the message. “Mindfulness is correlated with emotional intelligence, which itself has been associated with good social skills, ability to cooperate and ability to see another person’s perspective.” “Running an automatic-pilot routine can be like opening a new window in a computer. That can be an efficient way of getting things done. But sometimes you can have too many windows open, too many routines running, and then the computer starts to slow and may even eventually crash. There’s just too much going on, too many conflicting routines running.” “Mindfulness training helps you to spot when you’re overloaded before things start going wrong. It helps you to come away from automatic routines and focus more effectively on each simple passing moment.” “your experience – there’s nothing to be fixed here, no particular state to be achieved. See what it’s like to simply let your experience be your experience – without needing it to be anything other than it is.” “Mindfulness training opens up choice. Instead of just reacting you find that you begin to ‘respond’ a bit more. Reactions are largely unconscious, whereas responses come more from a place of awareness and conscious choice.” “What unites all of these reactions is just that – they are reactions. They emerge at lightning speed from the more primitive parts of your brain before you’ve been able to think things through just a tiny bit and come out with more skilful and appropriate responses.” “Part of the answer lies in learning the deeply counter-intuitive skill of allowing what is difficult and uncomfortable simply to be difficult and uncomfortable.”

    Worth the read. A good guide to meditation/mindfulness: clear and practical. The downloadable audio is also very helpful. While the title says 8 weeks, there's no must stick to timeline.

    This was a very down-to-earth guide on mindfulness practice which I liked a lot. It seemed that the book was backed up scientific studies on the subject, which is something that I appreciate. It was very readable and the mindfulness meditations were easy to follow. My only complaint is that there were quite a lot of different practicals and I got frustrated for trying to find the time to do them according to the plan. But that's just me trying to over-achieve.

    If you are interested in becoming more mindful through meditation I would definitely recommend this book on audio. Chaskalson provides explanation and examples of different ways of being mindful and meditating from walking, to eating, sitting and movement. I found Chaskalson’s voice perfect for getting into a deep meditative state however there seems to be an issue with his microphone so you can hear odd taps that break your concentration quite frequently; a better production would have helped.

    I had the audiobook version and it was stress-inducing the fact the speaker had such.a.patience to speak. Some tips were valuable, but overall not a book I'd recommend.

    2.5 stars. I’ve been reading a lot on self help to help me get rid of negativity. This book has been a good one in terms of teaching how to practice mindfulness in practical ways. However I did expect more hence the 2.5 stars.

    Sadly not as useful as I have initially hoped.

    The audio recording is a done by a British-accented man, and it was slightly difficult for me to think past his accent.
