    A good intro to mindfulness if you're new to it, and a nice reminder if you're you're not. The technique is explained in the first few chapters and after that it's mostly filler and repetition. Overall a solid little book. A good intro to mindfulness if you're new to it, and a nice reminder if you're you're not.

    People seem to like this book. I liked it too—until I got tired of the long winded “personal accounts” of the people the writer supposedly spoke to. It does have some interesting exercises that one can do to get over their life issues, long-term and short. However, the book makes it look like the deeper and older techniques taught over the ages are not effective or practical any more for the modern human, and hence, a dumbed down and repetitive length of pages describing some hundred variations o People seem to like this book.

It does have some interesting exercises that one can do to get over their life issues, long-term and short. However, the book makes it look like the deeper and older techniques taught over the ages are not effective or practical any more for the modern human, and hence, a dumbed down and repetitive length of pages describing some hundred variations of a handful of thoughts is the only solution. The book design is interesting and the initial few chapters are all you need if you want to take something away from the book to bring balance to your fast paced life with a “quickie” method. But at the end of the day, you may realise that the classics need your attention once again. The above review is just my thought on the useful of this book in my mental and spiritual improvement. No offence intended towards those who may have highly benefited from the book.

    The main mindfulness technique in this book is simple and powerful. The book, itself, contains far too much filler. Three chapters would have been enough to say all that needed to be said. The material is covered much more briefly, almost too briefly, in Eric Maisel's book "Coaching the Artist Within". Half-way in between would be most effective. That said, the technique is one I am teaching my kids who need meditative techniques and resist more traditional teachings. The main mindfulness technique in this book is simple and powerful.

    Not a completely terrible book, but the entire aspect of what the author is trying to convey is summed up in the first two chapters - related to breathing techniques. The "incantations" have a rather hokey feel to them - and the manner each is presented is at times slightly juvenile. The premise is good, the technique is a good one - the presentation can definitely use a lot of polish.

    I was surprised by this book. It's one of the best introductions to mindfulness I've read, as it's too simple to not put into practice. And it works. The book is presented in a somewhat new-agey, geared towards old ladies kind of way which is a shame. Anyone would gain a lot from reading it if they had an open mind, but I suspect only a certain few will be tempted to even give it a try. I was surprised by this book.

    Just could not get into this book despite trying to a few times, months apart, over the course of a year or so. I didn't find it particularly appealing when I would flick through the pages, as one does when you pick up a new book. When I attempted to read it through from page 1 I still couldn't relate. Never mind, some books grab you, some don't. And I feel I've given this one a fair go. Just could not get into this book despite trying to a few times, months apart, over the course of a year or so.

    A life-changing read. If ever there was a silver bullet for integrating presence into everyday life (off the cushion) and benefitting from its power and beauty, this is it.

    This book has some great techniques for centering and calming oneself. Anyone can try this method and feel some relief from anxiety.

    The author presents here and amazingly simple way to bring ourselves presence in the midst of any kind of circumstance that causes stress. I have been using these incantations for a few weeks now and I am utterly blown away by their effect on me. Try it and see! Thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
