    "coping with stress through meditation"

    If you want to learn more about how to cope with stress via meditation then this is a good book for you. The book was written for people who have never practiced mindfulness and meditation before. It is not for people looking for a “quick fix” for their daily problems. The techniques taught by Dr. Kabat-Zinn are intended to be practiced everyday and eventually you will improve your ability to cope through relaxation techniques.

    "Mind-numbing"

    The title sums up the book! Rather surprised at how poor this was given the reputation of the author!
