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.
Based on the techniques of Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, the unique program developed by Williams and his colleagues, this book offers simple and straightforward forms of mindfulness meditation that can be done by anyone—and it can take just 10 to 20 minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed.

Really good content - but VERY hard to follow up and practice the detailed steps for the 8 week program. It would be so simple for the authors/publisher to include an 8 page pdf - a single page outline for each of the weekly steps. I was going to gift this audiobook to a friend, but not w/o the written support materials. Too bad ;-(
It certainly is better than the paper version. Just to hear Mark William's voice. He has wonderful voice that has a calming effect, at least for me. It helps me to start my meditation just to focus on his voice. Awesome!
Yes, Because it is much more touching when heard, than read.

It takes time, I am writing this review after 1.5 years of Practicing. It really requires some time to sink in.
Yes, I would listen and re-listen to it many times. It is to the point and gives great insight to what mindfulness is about and how it can help.

I could never find time to meditate and always felt guilty. His meditations are short and so relaxing. I bookmarked them all so that I could easily listen to them. The reader has the most peaceful voice.
Just loved all of the meditations and techniques for being mindful.
Practical, inspiring and enlighting
Simple steps to become more aware of life itself.
Breath and stay in the now.
Would've liked to have each meditation on a separate track.
I live in Japan, and there are times when the stress of living here can be pretty challenging. This book has truly helped to reduce my level of stress through the practice of guided meditation. The narration is spot on.
Clear, concise, and easily digestible introduction to mindfulness meditation. Chapters are short. A practical program to follow with a small time commitment is outlined near the end followed by ten meditations, none lasting more than ten minutes. Reader has an English accent and and calm demeanor that is instantly soothing.
