As a former Buddhist monk with over 10 years of teaching experience, Andy Puddicombe has been acknowledged as the UK’s foremost mindfulness meditation expert. Like his students, he began his own meditation practice as a normal, busy person with everyday concerns, and he has since designed a program that fits neatly into a jam-packed daily routine - proving that just 10 minutes a day can make a world of difference. Simple exercises, stories, and techniques culled from Andy’s years of experience will help anyone calm the chatter in their minds. The result? More headspace, less stress.
Get Some Headspace also brings us the extraordinary science behind this seemingly simple cure-all. This audiobook and practice will help listeners positively impact every area of their physical and mental health, from productivity and focus, to stress and anxiety relief, sleep, weight-loss, personal relationships…and the list goes on and on.

I am a social worker and I buy books that will help me help others.
I have been a user of the author's headspace app for over a year now, so I had a good idea of what to expect in this book. He is able to explain how to be mindful in a simple and understandable way. I've read many books by zen masters that I value, but I feel like I got more out of this book. It is narrated by the author and he does an excellent job. He tells personal stories that keep you engaged. Overall, I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in mindfulness and/or being more calm.
Good stories. Good substance. Good performance. But it leaves you needing something to tie it all together and connect the dots.
his accent and relative sense of humor on what can be a dry topic. Sheds light on some misconceptions about meditation.
no. because he pretty much made his point.
This is an amazing book. It's an unusually comprehensive look into the principles, techniques and applications of mindfulness and meditation. A true potential life changer. I was captivated from beginning to end and will be referring to it again and again.
