Publisher Description

THE LIFE-CHANGING BESTSELLER - OVER 1.5 MILLION COPIES SOLD

Authoritative, beautifully written and much-loved by its readers, Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world has become a word-of-mouth bestseller and global phenomenon. It reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to break the cycle of anxiety, stress unhappiness and exhaustion. It promotes the kind of happiness that gets into your bones and allows you to meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage.

Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). Co-developed by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, MBCT is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression. But, equally, it works for the rest of us who aren't depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the relentless demands of the modern world.

By investing just a few minutes each day, this classic guide to mindfulness will put you back in control of your life once again.

Review

If you want to free yourself from anxiety and stress, and feel truly at ease with yourself, then read this book. - Ruby Wax

This is an inspiring programme for anyone caring about his or her own health and sanity. - Jon Kabat-Zinn

Peace can't be achieved in the outside world unless we have peace on the inside. Mark Williams and Danny Penman's book gives us this peace - Goldie Hawn

I don't just love this book because Williams was my professor and co-founder of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, but because this book is brilliantly clear on how we clutter up our lives with endless self-criticism and mind wandering - and so miss most of our lives. Williams gives you a free trip to the present ... unlike some books, this one wasn't fluff. - Ruby Wax

...the ultimate practical guide - The Sunday Telegraph
