“Teaches techniques that can be practiced on a crowded subway or even while wolfing a sandwich.... Ed Halliwell (The Guardian) said Mr. Puddicombe is ‘doing for meditation what someone like Jamie Oliver has done for food.’ And like Mr. Oliver, he’s ready to conquer the United States.” ―The New York Times
"Arriving at the office already stressed and tense sounds way less than ideal―and it is totally avoidable, according to Andy Puddicombe, co-founder of Headspace, a super popular meditation app. The former Buddhist monk and author of The Headspace Guide to Meditation & Mindfulness believes that the key is, quite simply, just a little mindfulness." ―Well+Good
“This is the only book on meditation you will ever need. Andy Puddicombe demystifies what is commonly an esoteric practice and brings it right into your living room, your office and your heart.” ―Patricia Ryan Madson, author of Improv Wisdom
“Discover what neuroscience has known for a very long time...meditation works! [This book] shows you how. A delightfully written and thoroughly enjoyable book." ―Judson Brewer MD. PhD, Medical Director, Yale Therapeutic Neuroscience Clinic, Yale University School of Medicine

In mindfulness, it is possible to learn self-compassion through the recognition that situations outside ourselves, or out of our control, need not disturb our inner quiet moments. Each mind, no matter how full of clutter, is just waiting for a quiet moment to come into focus.
I highly recommend this book due to Andy's style of Storytelling to help explain abstract ideas on mindfulness meditation. I would recommend downloading the app also.
I am really grateful for Andy and his mission, the "10 minute Headspace habit" can truly change someone's life very positively. Especially in our ever-distracted world! Be mindful, and your experiences will deepen, so you will enjoy life at a different level!

Like a lot of people, I had the Headspace app, and sort of dabbled with it a little. This book really clarifies the foundations and process around being mindful.
It's written in a masterful way, simple language and analogies, to convey exactly what the author wants to pass on to the reader. There's none of that American style, self help book bu*****t either....it's been written mindfully!
I can honesty say that this book has had a very positive effect on me, I now understand the principles of mindfulness, and how to go-about practising it properly.
I think from what I've written above, you can guess I would recommend this to anyone that wants to start living their life in a mindful manner.
Big thanks to the author.
The app itself is so helpful for people in general and a trendsetter in its own league. Other than that his style of teaching (or assistance to practice) meditation is brilliant.
Now this book offers insights about meditation (mainly according to the Tibetan Buddhist school) and various aspects regarding that. He has tackled the subject by dividing it into three main topics:
and The Integration.
Approach is where he has discussed about why one should practice meditation, Practice is where he shows some methods and ideal required mindsets, and Integration is where he's discussed how to implement meditation and mindfulness in everyday life. He has pointed out various scientific researches to back the practicality of practicing meditation which are authentic.
The language is simple and the approach is genial. Overall, for a general reader, this is the best available guidebook to start practicing meditation and mindful living. I highly recommend this book to read even for once.
I found Get Some Headspace to be easy to read and generally entertaining, and it gave me a good introduction to Mindfulness and meditation. I have been practising meditiation since. It is a long and sometimes difficult journey, but I can honestly say that it has changed me for the better. I am a bit calmer and less of a slave to my emotions, and am also able to stop and appreciate things a bit more. There is still a long way to go, and I couldnt tell you exactly how mindfuless has made a difference, but it has. I would say that somehow it has increased my self-awareness, and therefore given me more choices about what I do and how I behave in certain situations. The start of that was reading this book and also The Mindfulness Manifesto (and I should probably give Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Dummies a mention too, as that helped me at times).
I would therefore have to say this this book is well worth the money. I have been following the guided meditations on the Headspace website for some time now, and these are good also in my opinion. However only the first 10 are free, just to make everyone aware.
So for me, this book was the start of a difficult but rewarding journey that will probably go on for the rest of my life.
