People consider this book a contemporary classic on meditation for good reasons. It¿s lovely and accessible. Jon Kabat-Zinn tackles the difficult task of explaining the nonverbal practice of meditation, which many find alien or even threatening, and makes it accessible, useful and even homey. He explains meditation not only with references to classic texts, but also by recounting his own experiences, drawing parallels with Thoreau, and discussing work and family contexts. The chapters are brief, some as short as a page, each focusing on a single topic. Many are accompanied with prompting questions or simple exercises you can try immediately. getAbstract recommends this book to people interested in reducing their stress, deepening their self-awareness and sharpening their focus.

Discovered this book while searching on the internet for ways to help my wife. She suffered a head injury 12 years ago and also had some brain dammage. It is helping her by helping me to be more relaxed and happy with who I am in all situations in my life. Now I can see that her brain is gradually healing itself. It has been since her surgery but I was to busy taking care of her to slow down and see the progress.
