I echo what others have said, it opens up a new way of thinking about life. All of it-the good and bad. How you relate to the world as a whole, and the possibilities that awit you. It's not magical and "out there" but rather down to earth and user-friendly.

Doesn't matter your religion/lack of religion. It integrates very well with my Christian faith.

This book lets you consider things at your own pace and doesn't force anything on you. It deals with your reality and success isn't defined as being 100% happy all the time. Are you sad? Deal with that. Are you scared? That's ok. Are things going well? Great, now we can move onto new things from here.

I also have "where ever you go, there you are". As a biologist I feel this one is more intriguing but they both have a place.

Wonderful and inspiring book - it has come at a truly appropriate time in my life, when I really needed some guidance with mindfulness. Highly readable and well researched.

I would recommend this book to anyone who feels a little overwhelmed all of the time - anyone who has suffered from anxiety, depression or chronic illness or pain - in fact, even people who have experienced none of these! This book would help anyone live a more manageable, enjoyable life. It should be a compulsory text at high school!
Thank you Jon for writing it!

Clear guidelines for better self-understanding and how to use that knowledge to improve the quality of one's life.

This book helped me survive cancer treatments fairly comfortably and continuing the "mindfulness" practice has expanded my awareness of what is going on around and in me and how to use that knowledge to have a fuller richer life.
