I will update my review upon finishing this book, but please take a look if you are in a situation like I am, mindfulness is a solid technique for relief, or if you want mindfulness from another perspective, try reading about dialectical behavioral therapy, it is the same techniques but used for psychologically error-ed thinking (distortions in perception).
Short meditation and mindfulness exercises help us to hone in on the language our bodies are speaking to us through pain, and how to respond constructively in order to bring ourselves back into balance.
and the explanation of mindfulness. I am just a beginner in this area of meditation and am seeing some results.
I threw the book away. There are many great books, tapes, classes and lecture series out there that don't depend on junk science to market them. Like a lot of other things, meditation has become highly marketable and there are those who are taking advantage of that for its $$ value. My opinion, it is true here. Too bad. But, it always happens. The Insight Meditation Society, I believe, has been able to keep their focus on the truth, and benefits of meditation. Kabat-Zinn gained much of what he teaches from their format. I'd stick with them.
Don't give up.
There is a solution to chronic pain. You can stop blaming/questioning yourself, and you can do something about it.
What a welcome relief to read a "self-help" book that actually makes a difference.
Buy it, read it and start changing your life for the better.
