    Surprisingly I found this to be a very interesting book. There are ideas & practices found in this book that you can use in your everyday life in order to understand how you are feeling, why you act in a certain way, etc and how you can make any necessary changes. However not everything can be changed but this book shows you that you are able to think & act differently to a particular situation. Also it shows how important it is to have 'me' time too & not to feel guilty.

    I found that this book was not useful at all. It felt as if I was being talked down to and the everyday examples of how buddhism can help you were mundane and trivial. Like running out of milk! If that's what this guys uses Buddhism for, or if he thinks his readers are so simple-minded that they need such stupid examples of being stressed out it's an insult to us. DON'T BOTHER! My mistake for not going straight to the philosophy.

    Whether you find this book useful will really depend on why you're reading it and how much you already know about buddhism, mindfulness, etc It's an introduction to these ideas and as such is a useful practical guide and is also useful to dip into for reminders for some basic techniques. This is not written as a deep philosophy book and shouldn't be read as such.

  • Mary Saraco

    A practical introduction to meditation.

  • Bethany

    Really excellent. Explains Buddhism without all the specialist language that usually comes with it.

  • Penny

    Very engaging and accessible introduction to Buddhism. I found it really helpful in answering some of my questions.

  • Seawood

    Interesting, practical, and refreshingly NOT new-agey.
