Fully up to date Nook Color, but for life of me I cannot figure out how play the audio. The enhanced parts of the book do not contain any player controls.

Cannot be viewed on the iPad version of the Nook app. Call 1-800-THE-BOOK for a refund.

This product is defective. The audio is non-functional. Barnes and Noble tech support does not deal with this problem. Buy hard copy instead of ebook.

Excellent guide to mindfulness . Comes with a CD to get you started. Very easy to understand and makes sense as to why you should incorporate meditation in your life .

Mindfulness for BeginnersReclaiming the Present Momentand Your Lifeby Jon Kabat-ZinnGentle, relaxing and understandable this 166 page teacher really caught my attention. Not just for the easy concepts, but also the format in general was a treasure to review because I didn't end up feeling stupid even once. It was a pleasure to slow down and learn with supportive energy all around me. I didn't feel hurried or pressured to conform to a particular belief, I was encouraged to just tap the existing strength I already had inside me. Each topic was just what I needed at the time. Everything from beginners mind to an interesting chapter called "Hell Realms".There is also an accompanying 5 track CD that walked me through connecting to mindfulness my favorite was with my breath and made so much sense. I would recommend this much needed well presented gem to anyone wanting a better connection to slowing down and being. Thanks Jon, this was fabulous and oh so helpful.Love & Light,Riki Frahmann

The book now doesn't open at all in Nook. B&N customer service makes you go through a troubleshooting process before finally agreeing to refund the order.

I would like to enjoy the book: FAIL. The audio does not work. I went to my local Barnes and Noble store. A very nice assistant manager tried all he could to help. He FAILED. He said B & N would send me an email on how to fix the problem. FAIL. I bought the Nook because of local tech support. FAIL. As a result I am upset and no longer recommending the Nook to anyone. My Nexus 7 is far better. B&N is likely to go the way of Best Buy.

I wouldn't recommend this book to begginers. Even better to say, if begginers don't want to spoil their opinion about spirituality they don't need to read this book. They could read a crossing or the drop's history by Anatoliy Obraztsov. I think for begginers this is a perfect alternative.
