Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book offers an easy to follow program for beginning a meditation practice, written by lawyers and for lawyers. I highly recommend this book for anyone in the legal world who has wondered about meditation but hesitated to get started."
-- Congressman Tim Ryan, author of A Mindful Nation and The Real Food Revolution

"As someone who has meditated for thirty years, I was very happy to find this wonderful and effective introduction to the practice. While the "thinking mind" is a critical tool for lawyers, meditation relaxes the thinking mind, allowing new and creative insights to surface. Most of my best trial strategies and business initiatives emerged in this way! But the real benefit is the peace and calmness that meditation has added to my life. Jeena and Karen are offering the profession a profound gift."
-- Mary B. Cranston, retired CEO of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLC; first woman to head a major global law firm

"Perfect for that skeptical attorney who wants to dip a toe in the water. Cho and Gifford have produced a guide to meditation that leaves you eager to start right away."  
--Will Meyerhofer, Psychotherapist, former lawyer and author of Way Worse Than Being a Dentist 

"As an attorney who has struggled with substance use, eating disorders and other mental health issues, mindfulness has been an invaluable tool in my recovery. It is great to see Jeena and Karen leading the way with The Anxious Lawyer." 
-- Brian Cuban, author of Shattered Image, My Triumph Over Body Dysmorphic Disorder

"Much more than a how-to manual or text, the book speaks to the reader as a friend while providing amazingly useful insights. It reveals how meditation can help us find satisfaction and fulfillment in law as well as in life."  
-- Ellen Beilock, Mindfulness teacher and facilitator, former lawyer and litigator, former mediator at UCSF

From the Author

This book will provide a straightforward introduction to meditation and mindfulness using language and examples that will be familiar and comfortable to those in the legal community. It will address specific challenges attorneys face, common situations they find themselves in, and provide practical tools for coping with these challenges and stresses. It is particularly timely for a number of reasons. 

On the one hand, the pressures of legal practice have never been higher. As lawyers, we are constant witnesses to human suffering. Clients come to us with complicated problems that the legal process may be ill-suited to address. The economic pressures on legal practitioners are greater than ever. We are expected to win at all costs. We constantly push ourselves harder, to work more, to bill that extra 0.1 hour. It's no wonder that lawyers have one of the highest rates of substance abuse and depression of any profession. 

While they are beleaguered, lawyers have few tools to deal with the strains. Interest in meditation has skyrocketed in recent years, successfully engaging the business community, but the advantages and benefits of meditation have not yet been widely recognized by the legal profession. This is ironic because a lawyer's mind is arguably or her most used and valued instrument.

As a group, lawyers may be reluctant to attempt meditation. Often presented in a way that feels artificial and inaccessible, it seems antithetical to a culture that places great value on logic and reason. However, meditation and mindfulness are simply tools for training the mind. In fact, "mindfulness" means "paying attention." This book will appeal to lawyers because it is premised on the clear and scientific principle that the brain, like the body, can be trained and optimized to perform better.
