Dr. Siegel is a wise man. In a world filled with the pursuit of trivia and cash windfall, Dr. Siegel's book stands above and away from the crowd. Based on Buddhist teachings, the author is a leader in modern day application of a logical and effective philosophy of life, which is, essentially, to be mindful and enjoy the moment, rather than to ruminate on events of the past or anticipated stresses of the future. Communicated convincingly, succinctly and methodically, and with easy readability, the reader can extract its lessons in order to deal with chronic pain issues as well as crises of identity and fulfillment. I highly recommend this book for teachers and students alike, for psychotherapists and all those who appreciate insight.
