If it has letters strung into words that form a story which draws me in, I won't be able to resist it. Is there a reader's anonymous?
This was a nice, compact, simple introduction to mindfulness meditation. I had no prior knowledge of the philosophy behind mindfulness meditation and this gave a clear basic background to it, so I now have a starting point to research more. I was given this book for an honest review and appreciated the 'to the point' nature of its main body. It made mindfulness meditation seem less of a mystery and more approachable. Each chapter starts off telling you what it's about so you know what to expect and ends with a summary. The last bit of the book also has info on some of the author's other works which sound like they might be worth checking out.
This isn't a meditation walk through, but it does present some instructions that you can use to quickly get started. The narrator did a good job. She had a clear, calm, pleasant voice which considering I was listening to this while attempting to unwind from my day, and considering the subject matter of the book makes her an excellent choice.

In terms of mindfulness books, it's at the tippy top. I need something quick, easy to understand, and simple. This book was all three.
Me! I was able to begin a mindfulness routine right away!
I loved the narrator, she was crystal clear.
I was impressed that I could begin a mindfulness practice right away, without any prep time or complicated instructions.
The best part of this book was that it didn't over-complicate what is a very simple inner process, something that happens in the mind. There are periods of instruction, but it is not a moment by moment meditation audio. The author has a number of other books, so a guided meditation might be among them. I plan on listening to her book on letting go too. The sample included with this audio book was terrific. I was given this book for an honest review.
This short intro gives you the tools to get started. I plan on listening to another of the author's books, Letting Go, as well. Enjoyed her easy style and explanations.
As someone who has always wanted to learn about mindfulness, this was just what I needed. This was a wonderful introduction to mindfulness. Many of us are plagued with negative, useless thoughts which get us nowhere and lead to destructive actions like over-eating, smoking, etc., so this audiobook helps to shed light first on destructive behaviors, then on the need for mindfulness, and then on how to actually practice the art. Once you’re convinced of your need for mindfulness and you accept its value in relieving stress, anxiety, and depression, then you -- the discriminating audience -- will be able to appreciate the techniques for its practice.
Fortunately, it’s quite succinct and packs all the essentials in an easy, quick listen. The tools are simple, and I was able to IMMEDIATELY start the practice of mindfulness. If you want to start practicing mindfulness, this is definitely a good place to start. The narrator was also excellent – calm, pleasant voice.
This book was a terrific introduction to mindfulness. Written in simple, easy to understand terms it provides everything one needs to begin a life changing practice of mindfulness meditation. Covers everything needed to get started, and provides information about where to go from here. So often books on mindfulness are overwhelming, and one is left wondering where to start. No so with this book. You know right where to start, and how it can make a meaningful difference.
This Audible book was a great listen and fantastic intro to mindful meditation! Enjoy your journey.
I liked this short book very much. As someone who suffers chronic pain, I have practiced various forms of meditation for many years and personally I find mindfulness the most effective. This book provides a good basic outline of the principles and practice. The narration is pleasant.
As an idol for idiot worshippers, it behooves me to be as well-read as possible. But being an idiot I prefer to be read to.
To me, the book is a little light on content. Just a few short chapters. In the end it's intended as an introduction to mindfulness meditation and it shows. You won't immediately learn how to relieve stress and live worry-free from this book, but it does give a few handholds to get on the path towards that goal.
It's a decent enough stepping stone to get into the meditation habit. It offers a few techniques, and a few suggestions on how to sit. And every chapter ends with a recap.
If you want to figure out what mindfulness meditation is, and whether it's something for you, you could get this book. It's cheap and does offer some explanations, but it doesn't delve very deep into the subject.
The narration is good, I wish it included a guided meditation session.
So lately, I have been reading a ton of good, scientific articles on how meditation can affect change on the cellular level, so I have been wanting to learn more about meditation ever since then.
I am happy to have gotten a copy of this book. It is short, but it has a great introduction into the beginning steps of learning how to mediate and how to be more mindful and aware of yourself to help alleviate stress, depression, or anxiety.
The book starts by going over some basic history and philosophy of meditation, and its ties to religion, etc. And then after that chapter, the author begins to teach you basic breathing techniques and encourages awareness and teaches how to be mindful of your breathing and how that affects your state of mind.
The narrator did a great job of narrating this book. She speaks slowly and clearly, and was very easy to follow along with. When she would get to a part where she was describing how to do a breathing technique, she would pause long enough for me to hit pause on the audiobook, so then I could practice technique while holding my place in the book. I would definitely recommend this book. It is one that would benefit from multiple listening. This audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an honest and unbiased review
Audible addict. Love picking up a new read.......review everything I've listened to on audible.
I obtained a free audible.com copy in exchange for an honest review.
Approximately 50 minutes long and the title declares it is for beginners. First point accordingly I wish to to make is this is an introduction only, the book doesn't promise anything else so do not expect anything more.
It gives background and a basis for starting techniques only. It is not a meditation product that you work along to. Positions given for sitting during meditation too don't work well on audiobook so you'd have to look up certain information on the net, I'm guessing in the real book there must be illustrations.
Well narrated and overall of interest to someone like me who knew nothing about the subject. A great basic introduction read that is quickly and easily digested.
