I highly suggest reading the book: This. Only This. By Michael H. Brooks to anyone who is searching for peace in their life.
If you are looking for answers to the questions that pop into your head every second of the day as to 'WHY is my life not as I thought it would be', if you are looking for a way to a happier life, perhaps a better view of the beauty the world has to offer, or if you are looking for a way to just feel better about yourself, this book is for you.
In the book This. Only this. Y

I have problems reading self-help books or books on meditation. Conceptualizing texts like that is hard for me. That being said, Brooks delivers an approachable prose with a hilarious, charming tone. Even if mindfulness is not something you want to practice, this book provides a good reflection on awareness and emotional states of mind.

In summary, "This. Only This." is pragmatic and directly speaks to people living and working in the West. I'm an Engineer and already have used concepts from it in my day-to-day work life. Also, "This. Only This." has encouraged me to look deeper at principles I had previously skimmed over in my mindfulness practice. It's is also a fun read.

Now for the full review:

I really enjoyed this book, and I suspect I will be referring to it, from time to time, possibly for the rest of my life. Why?

Nourishment for the soul without unwanted calories, encouragement from a warm and witty teacher. I gave this book 5 stars not only for content, but for the author's great sense of humor. Brooks anticipates readers' questions and offers answers; anticipates problems and offers solutions. With a solid definition of mindfulness and the nitty-gritty of practice, this book is a welcome guide for beginners and a refresher course for those already on the journey.
