A useful book for therapists. Easy reading and ce credits available.
Best psychology book that I'be read on mindfulness. The organization of the book is perfectly written.
Its very good. I like Ms. Shapiro. I was able to spend a few minutes with her at a convention last year, and she is very engaging and sweet. I wish the book was more affordable, because I really want to add it to my collection, but can't pay those prices. It's well written, informative, and helpful as a psychotherapist.

Great overview of mindfulness studies and use in counseling and life.
Carefully researched, combining scientific information with personal insight and wisdom (both of the authors are longtime mindfulness meditators).
