    "it works"

    Williams and Zinn both have lovely voices, so listening was very pleasant. I was already familiar with meditation, so I took to it easily. I would recommend this program to anyone. all you need is some patience and a few minutes a day. The print version has a CD so the tracks are referred to by number that doesn't correspond to the chapter numbers. you can figure it out pretty easy but it is something to figure out.

    "Thankful to have found this audible"

    The authors are sharing their years of experience in a ways that are helpful, digestible, and useful. I have listened to segments of this audiobook everyday for nearly three weeks, as is suggested by the authors, and I plan to continue to listen for at least another three weeks. This book has brought about so much good that I am thankful to have stumbled upon it. If you are interested in this topic and/or suffer from depression I believe you should take a chance and get it. I'm glad I did.

    "Great Content - Meditations are at the End"
    Would you listen to The Mindful Way Through Depression again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this book and found the content very helpful.

    MEDITATIONS ARE THE LAST FEW CHAPTERS


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not necessarily but I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    The meditations that other commentators complain are not included are actually the last 6 or so chapters of the audio book. Those who complain about the lack of meditations either purchased a different version or didn't bother to listen to the whole book.

    "great book!"

    this book is a very good resource for learning how to get out of depression mindfully. i highly reccommend it to anyone trying to learn the practice of surrenderring into the moment. the best i have listened to/read on the subject. very practical and truly gets into the details of "how to" not just the comcepts. probably a book one would listen to multiple times even just for the meditations.

    I have been listening to books on tape for over 20 years. Starting with audio tapes, then CD's and now downloads.

    "This book is a life changer"
    Where does The Mindful Way Through Depression rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the books that has changed my life. It teaches the listener some very powerful skills to take control of one's current state. To help us realize that stress, anxiety, and depression are often allowing thoughts of past mistakes or future concerns to control the current, and thus rob us of the joy of living right now.


    What other book might you compare The Mindful Way Through Depression to and why?

    As this is a self help book, the closest books may be teaching company lectures.


    What did you learn from The Mindful Way Through Depression that you would use in your daily life?

    I learned that the mindfulness exercises are true exercises. I learn from doing them. Like exercises, it takes time to become good at them


    Any additional comments?

    If the listener struggles with being controlled by their emotions, this may be a great solution. It certainly helped me.

    "Amazing !"

    I have used Mindful Meditation CD's for about 6 months and found them very helpful. This book is the very best. It goes beyond just exercises and gives you ways to help depression. The body scan, if used daily is life changing!

    "Huge help for sufferers of depression"

    Highly recommend if you suffer from depression, but you must do the guided Meditations and activities. It takes time yes, but it really works!

    "Well worth the time and money!"

    This audio book has been incredibly helpful in facing depression. MBCT is science based and proven. Take the actual 8 week course if you can alongside listening to and reading the book.
