At 600-plus pages, this deeply philosophical book may challenge some readers. But Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, an accomplished scientist, thinker and author, imparts his wisdom in short, easily digestible chapters. He says you can have a more peaceful, contented life if you are open to exploring the spiritual realm and the practice of mindful meditation. Kabat-Zinn, who cites studies and personal experiences, presents convincing evidence that meditation reduces everyday stress, and can help treat depression and fear, chronic pain, cancer and other serious illnesses. We believe that everyone can benefit from reading this mindful treatise ¿ even those who are already healthy, wealthy and wise. Highly recommended.

Mr. Kabat-Zinn as always issues the challenge to be mindful and to be in the present with full awareness to your surroundings because in this digital manic world we get lost in so many places but rarely do we get lost in ourself. Take the time to meditate and to be within oneself so that the life experience can be something that perhaps we all have been missing. Not for the feint of heart. Mindfulness brings us back to a place that perhaps we haven't been for a while...inside ourself.

A great idea that desperately needs a great editor. This is a work clearly intended to be a magnum opus on mindfulness, and it has many important points. Unfortunately, they are lost in a messily organized and frustratingly poorly written text. The editor, if there was one, did Mr. Kabat-Zinn a great disservice. And it is a pity, too. He is clearly passionate and informed - and when on television, impressively eloquent. Here, though, his ideas are too bogged down in poorly structured sentences. This is an immensely important book that is done in by immensely bad editing.
