absolutely loved it!

I've never really felt compelled to review products or servjces, but this book definitely deserves one! I absolutely love how it opened my mind to a new way of thinking and being! I read this book hoping to gain a new skill in the form of meditation and discovered sooo much more! will be recommending it to everyone feeling lost and looking for a path and purpose.

Direct, as the title suggests

This book is brimming with practical nuts and bolts advice and wisdom for someone with a regular meditation practice. It might(?) be a bit much for someone totally unfamiliar with meditation, but it would be excellent if you truly wanted to try sitting on a regular basis. There is a pretty serious discussion of concentration-one pointed attention on a single object, like the breath-as a means of strengthening mindfulness that i found very helpful. That theme of developing concentration in tandem with mindfulness and how they serve each other is something i don't think i had read or heard explained so clearly before. I would absolutely recommend this book if you sit or really no bullshit want to try sitting. I would say this book would be 100% amazing if you had tried meditating and wanted to have more direction and understand mindfulness more clearly. So, yea in that case, 100% amazing for anyone who meditates.

excellent. one of the best books on mindfulness.

Narrator sounds like Henry Gibson, from Laugh-In. One of the best books about mindfulness on audio media. TWO THUMBS UP.

Life changing...

This book changed how I handle my anxiety- allowed me the space and breath to be able to see things clearly and step back if needed.

This no nonsense, empirical approach to the mind is changing my life.

This no nonsense, empirical approach to the mind is changing my life. After decades of disappointments from so called 'holy books' and religious dogma, this simple (yet difficult) task of living mindfully is giving me the satisfaction I could never find in organized, god centered religion.

highly recommend

Good engaging narration from Edoardo Ballerini. Fantastic explanation on what mindfulness is all about. I would say a must listen/read for anyone to understand mindfulness.

I finished this book in 3 days. But it is a book you will want to and probably need to read again.
A solid foundation book on mindfulness. One that you will cherish for ever.

In plain English, but not an introduction to meditation and mindfulness.

The book was well written and well read, but at times I felt like it was a superiority it's tone and it's teaching. However, it does cover The concept of mindfulness extremely well and very thoroughly. My sense is that I will continue to get a lot out of this book as I practice my meditation over the years.

So basic it's painful.

I'm new to meditation but I know what it is and why I'm interested in it. For me this was a waste of time. Obviously I'm referring to the Audible edition, however hard the performer did try to make it interesting, the content is too simple in a dated way.

Might be good to read....

This was not a good listen. Content might be better if read, but does not translate well to audio. Performance was sing-song-y and seemed contrived. I would not recommend
