This is an amazing book with a perfectly apt title. The author treats the hard work of spiritual progress through practicing mindfulness in a pragmatic but humane way. I enjoyed his practical advice on how to begin and maintain a healthy meditation practice very useful. His discussions on the aims of mindfulness were also enlightening (get the joke...yuk yuk yuk).
This is an excellent book for beginning/intermediate meditators or anyone interested in practical philosophy (especially Buddhism).
