The list author says: "I'm a Mindfulness Trainer and admit that I've written the book 'Mindfulness For Dummies' and so naturally recommend that one. However, in my training and researching for that book, I've read many books on Mindfulness and would like to share which ones I advise my course participants and executives/coaches/therapist that I train."
"This is a book I have written so I'll just give you the facts and you decide. The book has 19 chapters which includes discovering mindfulness and its application for stress, anxiety, depression and boosting happiness and creativity. It includes a CD with several different mindfulness exercises of varying length. The book has a summarised cheat sheet too, and top ten tips."
"This is well written and detailed overview of the course developed by the author, called 'Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction'. The book gives advise on people suffering from a range of conditions, from eating disorders to anxiety, from stress to sleep problems. The book also contains yoga exercises and meditations. Sadly it doesn't include a CD. Highly recommended - one of my favorite books."
"The authors developed a brand new treatment for reducing the onset of recurring depression called Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and this book includes a CD and explains the contents and learnings gained from that course in great detail. The book includes many subtle points that are often overlooked in books on mindfulness, and I'd recommend it."
"This is a book for therapists really, or teachers of mindfulness. The book is very slim and easy to read, but contains lots of fabulous points and is written extremely clearly. I found this book very helpful when I was researching for my own book. If you're a mindfulness practitioner, highly recommended."
"This is a book on mindfulness from a Buddhist perspective. Although occasionally I find the writer slightly on the harsh side, generally speaking this book is very good. You would certain have a deep understanding of how to practise mindfulness, and the common pitfalls, if you read this book. I am certainly happy that I've read it."
"Thich Nhat Hanh writes about mindfulness from the Buddhist perspective. Nhat Hanh has a unique style of writing which I enjoy, and I've met him, and he certainly lives what he teaches. He is very mindful and looks very serene and peaceful. Just reading a few pages everyday before practising mindfulness is a wonderful way to start your day. Highly recommended."
