This book explains the need for and benefits of mindfulness and outlines the sorts of activities Kabat-Zinn recommends to cultivate mindfulness clearly and compassionately. I was disappointed, however, to discover that it does not include the specific meditations or yoga practices he recommends; it describes them, but does not walk you through them in detail. If you want to listen to recordings that tell you what to concentrate on when doing a body scan or what yoga moves to do, you must buy additional tapes or CDs. I assumed that an audiobook read by the author recommending yoga and meditation practices would include the instructions needed to carry out those practices, but I was wrong.
