    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?

    "Short and to-the-point starter guide"

    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.

    "No Nonsense Helpful Way to Gain Mindfulness"
    Where does Mindfulness for Beginners rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Me! I was able to begin a mindfulness routine right away!


    What about Tia Sorensen’s performance did you like?

    I loved the narrator, she was crystal clear.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was impressed that I could begin a mindfulness practice right away, without any prep time or complicated instructions.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Great introduction to Mindfulness"

    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.

    "Practica, useful guide"

    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.

    Highly recommended!

    "A realistic approach to meditation"

    I thought this was a really good book. I've read a few books on meditation because I am interested in incorporating it into my life. What I liked about this book was that it points out that (for breath focus), you may sometimes let the focus on what type of breath you are taking become consuming. For example, many of the books I have read and the demonstrations I've seen have talked about the importance of taking deep breaths. However, if your breathing is tight or rapid, this book tells you to let it be what it is. Eventually it will probably settle into deeper breathing as you relax. The book also stresses thinking of meditation as exercise - you don't work out once and become buff. It happens over time, just as the benefits of meditation will happen with practice. I thought this book had a lot of good information and good examples to help understand what meditation is and what it can do.

    I listened to the Audible audio version of this book narrated by Tia Sorensen, and I enjoyed her narration. She has a very calm and clear voice that is pleasant to the ear. I don't think I've ever listened to anything she has narrated before, but now I want to check out more of what she has done.

    Overall, if you're interested in meditation, this book is very practical and REALISTIC. Too many times we start a practice only to quit because we are frustrated that we are not seeing results, or its too hard. This book makes the practice of meditation seem doable.

    "Easily digested basic introduction to the subject"
    Any additional comments?

    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.
