    It is everywhere around us. Even worse, it gets inside us - sapping our energy, undermining our health, and making us more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and disease. Now, based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's renowned mindfulness-based stress-reduction program, this groundbreaking audiobook shows you how to use natural, medically proven methods to soothe and heal your body, mind, and spirit.

    What did you love best about Full Catastrophe Living?

    It is an excellent primer for mindfulness training. Dr. Cabot-Zinn presents the work in a straightforward way that is thoughtful, compassionate, and, most importantly for this reader, woo-free. In other words, Cabot-Zinn does not engage in inducing or inculcating unvalidatible principles into the work, such as references to gods, mystical forces, etc. Those elements are present in many other books on Audible, despite some of them being presented as training manuals for professionals.

    This is the book to get if you are interested in understanding/developing mindfulness either for yourself or as an adjunct to treatment for psychotherapy clients. It appears to proceed from the unspoken tenant that mindfulness development can and should be based in scientifically-based principles and not from culturally-based, illogical, and oppressive principles rooted in fad, fashion, and feel-good fantasy.

  • Doubt: A History: The Great Doubters and Their Legacy of Innovation

    Hecht champions doubt and questioning as one of the great and noble, if unheralded, intellectual traditions that distinguish the Western mind. From Socrates to Galileo and Darwin to Wittgenstein and Hawking, this is an account of the world's greatest intellectual virtuosos - who are also humanity's greatest doubters and disbelievers - and their attempts to reconcile the seeming meaninglessness of the universe with the human need for meaning.

    Any additional comments?

    If you never went through a cavalcade of studying the works of people who called b!?&sh@/ on religion, then this is the book for you. What a great education in the scope of these works. I really felt grounded around the issue of doubt through time as a result of reading it. It also upset me in that I was left with an overall feeling of hopelessness of safe coexistence with religion. Religion seems to come back with a vengeance and kill off or at least destroy the careers of people who say "No" to the delusions of its unvalidated precepts. It seems as though doubting ends up being a game of Whack-a-Mole.
