I received this book as an ARC in exchange for my review.

The term "mindfulness" has become a new catch phrase. You can't look at a self help, recovery or parenting section of a bookstore without finding a dozen or more books with 'mindful' in the title. You hear about it in school meetings, workshops, on the cover of magazines & in the news. I started to feel like this term was just the 'new thing' & wondered how watered down these approaches had become. After a few school meetings, i just about developed a tic when i heard the word. So when this book was offered, i was curious.

Its not a bad book. The author is clearly making a point & has his views. But it wasnt surprising or enlightening. I feel like I've read it all before, just not bound in a 300 page book.

In a few years, the term will be replaced with something new & probably as watered down.

Many thanks to the publidher, author and Hidden Gems for the free ecopy in exchange for my review.
