For anyone interested in Mindfulness, this book, written by Dr Danny Penman and Professor Mark Williams looks set to become essential reading.
Dr Penman and  Professor Mark Williams have written a book called “Mindfulness – a practical guide to finding peace in a Frantic World”
Stay tuned for an interview with him in the next week or two. I have the book on express order from Angus and Robertson and can’t wait for it to arrive.
Here’s how the authors describe the book.

MINDFULNESS reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help you break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. It promotes genuine joie de vivre; the kind of happiness that gets into your bones and seeps into everything you do. The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and it is recommended by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence – in other words, it works. But more importantly, it also works for the rest of us who aren’t depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the relentless demands of the modern world. In short, Mindfulness helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with renewed courage.
