    >"What are you reading?" That's the question Will Schwalbe asks his mother, Mary Anne, as they sit in the waiting room of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. In 2007, Mary Anne returned from a humanitarian trip to Pakistan and Afghanistan suffering from what her doctors believed was a rare type of hepatitis. Months later she was diagnosed with a form of advanced pancreatic cancer, which is almost always fatal, often in six months or less. This is the inspiring true story of a son and his mother.

    Mark says: "A good book, but not really for me."
    "Wonderful and inspiring!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The End of Your Life Book Club to be better than the print version?

    I loved listening to Jeff Harding. My sister recommended the book, but I bought the audiobook instead and I don't regret it for one minute.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's real and touching at the same time. It makes you laugh, cry and think. Also makes you want to read more.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So hard to pick, but I guess when he summarizes his mother's advice for life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What would YOU like to remember about your mother?


    Any additional comments?

    A fantastic book about life and a reading addiction. Wonderfully narrated too.

    Everyday life is so frantic and full of troubles that we have largely forgotten how to live a joyful existence. We try so hard to be happy that we often end up missing the most important parts of our lives. In Mindfulness, Oxford professor Mark Williams and award-winning journalist Danny Penman reveal the secrets to living a happier and less anxious, stressful, and exhausting life.

    Have you listened to any of Mark Williams and Jon Kabat-Zinn (foreword) ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Breath and stay in the now.

    Would've liked to have each meditation on a separate track.
