Editorial Reviews

'An engaging and amusing read that covers a highly important topic: Awareness and Acceptance as core tenets of mental health. The exercises are easily identifiable, humorous, and relevant.' Peter Lawrence, Financial Analyst   'Mindfulness offers a practical and simple approach to becoming more confident and effective in today’s busy workplace.'  Stephney Dallmann - Director, Professional Services Firm   'As a CEO, I often turn to the mindfulness techniques as outlined in this book to create the psychological "still space" I need for considered analysis and calm reflection on business issues. The techniques allow timely, confident decision making to flow naturally out of even the most complex and fast moving situations.' Raza Khan, CEO, Buckinghamshire Learning Trust   'An operating manual for the most important but least understood area of our lives - the mind and how we think. Good for thinking about business, great for thinking about life and living it.' Paul Ward, Investment Banker and CFO    'A highly-practical and engaging book on the everyday application of mindfulness. Recommended reading for just about everybody and anybody.' Dr Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap
