"The first mindfulness bed treatment to be researched and found effective for a mental health condition, depression. An amazing advance. Important reading for those interested in depression treatment. Will be seen as the book that brought mindfulness fully into mental health settings. Specifically, a manual for those suffering from many bouts of depression. Includes a CD with guided meditations."
"The definitive book describing the first mindfulness based program, designed for pain, and extended to stress and many other things. Jon Kabat-Zinn is the great founder of use of mindfulness by the medical community."
"This bold can help the mindfulness oriented consumer identify a mindful therapist. Yalom's emphasis on the Here-And-Now in treatment is veery similar to how mindfulness is applied in the therapy session."
"Gilbert simply goes about demonstrating that use of our logical minds to find happiness is a really risky proposition, unless we follow certain guidelines which he readily acknowledges we probably won't. This is really an indirect pointer towrds the importance of mindfulness, since part of it is to loosen our belief that thoughts are facts, and to put more trust in current experience."
