If you want a primer on general mindfulness that's focused mostly on productivity benefits at work, this is the book. It's filled with small exercises and prompts to practice being more aware of your thoughts, feelings, and actions, and practice using your feelings as signals, not as orders. It also had one of the best prompts for finding purpose that I've seen.

The book takes a very, very general view of what mindfulness means. Everything from defusing feelings, to crucial conversations, to retrospectives, to building courage. I liked that it shared small actions to help with each of these, but it meant that the book was broader and shallower than I typically like.
