"Tells it straight, with humour."
Happily would have, time permitting. This is a no-nonsense, clear and accessible teaching of Mindfulness. I haven't seen one as well written. Also it uses good humour - I was laughing along as well as nodding my head lots as this applies to me - it applies to the human condition. If anyone wants to de-stress and find some peace as well as greater control and efficiency of mind, you'll find it by reading this book. The narrator was good too. Recommended.
"Sounded promising.... but I didn't quite get it."
Yes. Oli's book is interesting and intriguing..... maybe I need to listen again and really spend time on the exercises but from first listening I feel like I haven't quite "got" the concept of mindfulness bringing peace.
I shall listen again and try to do the exercises for a while - hopefully that will make the concepts clearer.
I've read so much about mindfulness, as I'm sure a lot of people have. This book nails it, it is so useful from word one. It particularly resonated with me, the examples were spot on, not wishy washy, and they were all relevant. I'm relistening to it straight away as soon as I put this full stop.
"Not for me"
I am sure that some people would love this book, but it just wasn't for me.
Very interesting read. Talks in language that you can relate to and apply to your own life. Very soothing and reassuring.
Clear, simple and concise. I definitely feel more peaceful as I am learning to quieten my thoughts.
I found this very insightful. I'm very much a victim of my own thoughts trapped within the prison of my own brain, I now realise just how much has gone wrong in my life due to my own mind causing issues that didn't exist to start with. I definitely recommend this book for people needing a better outlook in life.
"Very inspiring :)"
A well read, well written inspiring audio, definitely worth listening to if you are starting out on the path of mindfulness.
"simple and effective"
This book is straight forward and practical.
It's like someone telling you a few home truths, it snapped me out of the rut I was stuck in and made me realise where I was going wrong.
No spiritual airy fairness, just good advice and very manageable exercises.
"Not what I was expecting"
This is purely a book about mindfulness; have to admit I haven't listened to it all. Unfortunately with audio books you don't have an index to see what the contents are to be able to dip in and out of it. So it makes this type of book very difficult . I've heard so many mindfulness talks/audios etc that I wanted a simple intro and then practice. For some reason I am unable to download the actual practical bits, Oli has tried to help, so it's obviously my iPad or something.
