    1. There are interesting and useful lessons in this book. If we take them seriously and bring them into the context of our life, they can heavily influence the quality of our life. As John Kabat Zinn said in one of his lectures, mindfulness is not merely a technique; it's a way of being. Therefore, mindfulness can help us to change our relation with ourselves and our world. All in all, I recommend this book for those who want to transform themselves and their world.

    2. Decades ago, it was JKZ who introduced me to mindfulness practice outside the Buddhist context.Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness was just what I needed at that time. I didn't need to feel like a failed Buddhist nor any guilt whatsoever ensuing from my own spiritual and life-style choices.I needed to forgive myself for not achieving instant enlightenment, and I certainly didn't need to suffer any more as a backdrop to life.Certainly [...]

    11. Jon Kabat-Zinn is the best when it comes to mindfulness and meditation. I've enjoyed his other books, but this was just excerpts of those books. Sort of like Deep Thoughts, but not humorous. Skip this book and get one you can sink your teeth into.
