Reviews

Composed by a star-studded team of scientists and practitioners, this powerful book is the best self-help title to arrive since David Burns's seminal Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy. Williams (clinical psychology & Wellcome Principal Research Fellow, Oxford Univ.), John Teasdale (fellow, British Acad. & the Acad. of Medical Sciences), and Zindel Segal (Morgan Firestone Chair in Psychotherapy, Univ. of Toronto) previously collaborated on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, a well-received text for mental health professionals. Add to the mix Jon Kabat-Zinn (medicine, emeritus, Univ. of Massachusetts Medical Sch.), a luminary in his own right (Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life), and the result is a useful lay reader's guide to incorporating mindfulness techniques in everyday life. Providing a realistic eight-week program, this wonderful guide and its accompanying CD offer invaluable practical strategies for banishing depression and regaining one's life. Highly recommended for all public and academic library collections.-Lynne Maxwell, Villanova Univ. Sch. of Law Lib., PA Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Williams and his international team of authors provide insight into the healing power of so-called 'awareness' through which people can escape the wearisome ruminations of the obsessed mind, befriend alien feelings, and come more alive in themselves. The book is accompanied by a CD with meditations that can help the listener enter the present moment, own more fully their physical context, and stand back from the flow of their thinking and feeling...A practical volume that bears the authority both of contemporary psychology and the age old spiritual practice of meditation." - New Directions "Every word in this affordable paperback seems to embody the gentleness and the spirit of openness that one brings to the practice of MBCT. It is therefore an ideal tool for guided self-help...Invaluable for all non-professionals and therapist alike, The Mindful Way through Depression takes the reader step-by-step on a journey of exploration...Just get the book, get your bottom on the cushion and read it." - Florian Alexander Ruths, British Journal of Psychiatry, December 2007 "Williams and his international team of authors provide insight into the healing power of so-called 'awareness' through which people can escape the wearisome ruminations of the obsessed mind, befriend alien feelings, and come more alive in themselves.
