    "Buy the written book instead"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, Jon's narration is robotic. If you want to sleep then listen to this book. Frankly it was so much so I could gained very little from this book. When I was able to keep my attention on the robotic voice I did have some insight. I think the book is overall good, but really get another person to read it and re-publish the audio book.


    What could Jon Kabat-Zinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have another person narrate the book. Jon reads with no emotion, no emphasis any word or idea. I have tried to listen to this book many times. The last time was a flight and I fell into a deep sleep.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Speaks very mono-tone.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not purchase any audible book that Jon narrates.

    anyone


    Any additional comments?

    "Great message, but grab a cup of coffee first."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wherever You Go There You Are to be better than the print version?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    While I think Jon Kabat-Zinn's message is critically important to our health and well being in this wild and crazy world. I did however, find the narration so calm and soothing that I had trouble staying focused. I found myself leaving the "moment" he quietly murmured about, and thinking about all the nagging things on my to do list. It was solid evidence that I REALLY need this book, but I have to be present in the moment to HEAR the book if I am to learn anything. I upped the narration speed on my Kindle a bit and it helped. Worth the listen, but maybe in small "moments" instead of your long commute.

    "great tool for mediating"

    This is an easy to listen to self help audio book with some good tips for the meditation journey. It's pretty simple so good for beginners. I found it helpful to listen to when I have insomnia and it helps still my mind when I can't sleep. Recommend.

    "Background music hugely distracting"

    I hated the background music. Very distracting which detracted from the content. Made the performance "busy"

    "Misses the mark..."

    This book attempts to educate along the lines of mindfulness, and tragically falls short. I found it ironic that one of the teachings in this book was to "just be", yet the author tries to convince you that the book is secular in nature rather than spiritual. Why not just allow the book to "be" what it is?

    "Informative and self reflective"

    Understandable simple way of life as mindfulness is a nurturing and training for mental health.
