A good reminder to focus on what’s important in life and how to take a moment to be in the present.

The style in which the message is delivered was a bit cheesy for me. An unlikely story of enlightenment and 180 degrees personality shift. BUT - the message is vitally important and I am resolving to incorporate the three breaths into a daily practice. The author is right, it doesn't take "time", it takes "intent." This only took me a couple of hours to read (and I'm hella slow), so it is definitely worthwhile.

Borrowed this from my work resource library. Lots of common sense advice. I really wish it was as easy as taking three deep breaths and life becomes so easy. Maybe with a bit more practice I can actually utilize all these stress re-leaving techniques. I should be the calmest person in the office with all this reading on stress reduction.

This book is a parable about a man, like many of us, who is constantly rushed, finding our anger rising several times a day, and wondering where the joy has gone. He meets a teacher, who teaches him how to breath.
A great introduction to mindfulness without all the nonsense that makes it hard to stay with it.

Easy and quick to read. Simple but powerful message if followed.

I enjoyed this parable story. It was quick and easy to read. I know how profound and life-changing deep breathing can be, and it's amazing how many people just don't do it.

I'm keeping this one on my shelf to re-read as needed.

Three Deep Breaths is a parable of a executive whose life is at a mess and how life brings him to the teachers who help him to calm down. Thomas Crum has put the life lessons every executive needs to know to bring a work life balance.
