These two Gentleman are so easy to listen to

I could listen to Jon Kabat-Zinn and Daniel Goleman for hours. They have this banter that keeps you interested and the topic of course is what keeps all of us in the world. I mean keeps us " in the world." Keeping yourself in the moment is what keeps us out of the Doctors office, listen and find out for yourself.
Great job Guys and keep-um comin'.

It's a podcast & it should be free

I listened to it twice wondering if I missed anything. it rather encourages the audience to buy the books of the both authors, which in fact sounds like an hour long commercial. I wanted to return it. the system refused. I would rather get a zen book instead. the content is not what the title is.

Terrific!

What made the experience of listening to Mindfulness @ Work the most enjoyable?

Honest, real, valuable for anyone who wants to move beyond standard advice for self-development.

What other book might you compare Mindfulness @ Work to and why?

Jon Kabat-Zinn's books have been at the heart of the Mindfulness movement, and the addition of Daniel Goleman speaking of Emotional Intelligence, as well as the warm interchange between these two dear friends make this an extremely enjoyable listen.

Have you listened to any of Daniel Goleman and Jon Kabat-Zinn ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. This is the best.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. But it brought be real joy and as I finished, I wanted to go right back to the beginning and listen again.

Any additional comments?

If you have any inclination whatsoever to check this out, DO IT!

Excellent book for everyone from students to working professionals and public in general

Truly motivating and in many ways an eye opener as to how being present and being human can make a huge difference at work and life. Highly recommended for working professionals who also happen to lead teams. Equally recommended for team members who contribute to the goals of an organization.

Of very practical help...

I found this to be a very useful guide to Mindfulness. Having heard a few radio programs and read a few articles, I was keen to understand how it could help me become more focused, less stressed and sleep better.

The book includes a concise background / context for Mindfulness and also includes actual exercises. The exercises support the earlier theory very well and are not over long. A very useful resource which I will keep coming back to.
