As a teacher of meditation and mindfulness, I approached this book with mixed feelings...and after reading it, ended with great respect for the author and his work. True to the Dummies' template, reading this book can feel like taking a drink out of a fire hose - too much to absorb. That being said, the individual chapters offer well-defined concepts that feel more manageable and offer easy to use and valuable information. For readers new to mindfulness, this book gives them a great, basic overview. For the more experienced, this book offers creative and innovative ideas for deepening their own practice, as well as supporting the practice of others. If you're reading this review, then you have some interest in mindfulness and will find this book a well-written, caring, and information-packed resource.
The instructions in this book are easy to understand and follow. With a bit of motivation and practice you can get some practical experience with the techniques and see what might work for you. I have previously read much of the Buddhist literature on meditation as well as a lot of neurophysiology on the nature of thought. The Buddhist approach suffers from multiple schools recommending different techniques plus a lot of ideas truly foreign and unacceptable to a westerner such as transmigration of souls. The neurophysiological approach is so fractured and minutely divided that the overall picture of what a person might do with a lifetime of experience to asses, is left unanswered. The literature on emotional intelligence comes close however to explain how a well functioning mind might work. I never realized that becoming mindful is a 24/7 challenge, and meditation is simply a way to slow things down so you can sort out a few aspects. This makes entering the fray of daily activities a bit easier as you have developed some insights enabling a better understanding of how your mind puts things together. As a physician I was looking for a book to recommend to patients who could use a better understanding of mental health, and this book is now at the top of my list.
This book is easy to read and very well organized. One other reader found it tiresome, but I don't
see how that can be. I have read other books on mindfulness, but this one clearly stands out for
the beginner in this sometimes puzzling but profound subject., I highly recommend this book for anyone,
whether religiously inclined or not, who wishes to deepen their understanding of the theory and practice
of mindfulness. Note that it is filled to the brim with practical suggestions.
I haven't finished this, but so far it seems extremely insightful and helpful. Very well-explained ideas and solutions are provided in ways that don't alienate someone on any "spiritual" grounds, which is to say that people of various belief systems(or none at all) should be able to get a lot out of it. I'm quite secular myself, and still find the wording, reasoning given, and even the little stories to be well-written and appropriate in context.

One major problem, though, is with the formatting, which I've called tech support about: When viewing in "black" mode, there are white areas where text should be(and it is in sepia mode, while in white mode the background is simply ALL white.) In black mode, there are white rectangles as backgrounds for some paragraphs, and the text, which normally would show up as black in white/sepia modes, is *completely* invisible. I'd encourage the author, publisher, and Amazon to look into correcting this problem, as black mode is really easy on my eyes, especially late at night when I often read books like this.

Other than that technical issue, though, the book is highly recommended. To take away even one star on those grounds seems inappropriate, even though I want very badly for the issue to be resolved fully.
I have read meny books of 'how to" meditae, and this is the first book that I find very useful.
It explains mindfulness in a way that makes it clear and approachable, and by following the step by step guidance, I found myself , for the first time really able to meditae.

The book is very well written and contains clear explanations of each of the several forms of meditations.

The cd is extremely helpful and enabled me, for the first time , to actually be mindful, at first for short periods ,and gradulally for longer time.

I bought this book in effort to reduce high blood pressure and, indeed it helps !every day I meditate the mini- med. in the morning, and my days have become less stressfuls. In the evening I do the ' body scan meditation' which improved my sleeping at night.

I really recommand this book. It helpes me very much and improves my everyday life and my health .
NOTE the kindle version of this book doesn't include any audio or cd content. This is a drawback as I would like to listen to the guided meditation cd which is included in the physical edition of this book. I wish the publisher or Amazon would let you download the additional content somehow.

Also, this kindle book does not let you skip to the next chapter using the right/left arrow (4 way) keys. I think this is a significant formatting oversight. However, the table of contents are hyper-linked, so you could use "Go to" from the menu to go to the Table of Contents page and then link to the desired chapter from there. The drawings and icons in this book show up pretty well, so that's good.

Some formatting issues aside, the contents of this book have greatly exceeded my expectations. I did not have a lot of respect for the "Dummies" series of books in the past. I thought they sometimes dummed things down a bit too much. But this book is excellent. I was new to the mindfulness practice, I was only recently introduced to it by my Physical Education instructor. I didn't have a clear idea what he was talking about. This book has been extremely helpful. It is a very pleasant read, and I would recommend anyone to purchase it.

I definitely encourage people to purchase this book. It is a good investment on your well-being.
