A book for intelligent, thoughtful people
on September 18, 2010
As a teacher of meditation and mindfulness, I approached this book with mixed feelings...and after reading it, ended with great respect for the author and his work. True to the Dummies' template, reading this book can feel like taking a drink out of a fire hose - too much to absorb. That being said, the individual chapters offer well-defined concepts that feel more manageable and offer easy to use and valuable information. For readers new to mindfulness, this book gives them a great, basic overview. For the more experienced, this book offers creative and innovative ideas for deepening their own practice, as well as supporting the practice of others. If you're reading this review, then you have some interest in mindfulness and will find this book a well-written, caring, and information-packed resource.
