If you have a problem, may it be of physical or psychological nature, pain, illnes, stress, whatever - read this book. It certainly won't cure your problem, but it surely will teach you how to cope with it. Using regularly the simple excercises, whatching your reactions, thoughts, will gradually change the way you see yourself and your life - with all the good and bad that goes with it.
Written by a medical doctor, this book is based on firm scientifical evidences, if you are after new age esotheric miracles, you will have to look elsewhere.
The most important I have learned from it is: how you cope with your problems, depends basically on the way you percieve them. This book shows you how you can change the way you see your problems, and how you can work with them. Needless to say, problem solving is your job, but you are given powerful tools to use, you do not feel helpless anymore.
You can order a four CD set, that pases perfectly to the book. The CDs contain each a 45 minutes guided meditation, yoga excercises, sitting meditation and body scan meditation. They proved very useful to me.
Grounded in scientific research, Jon Kabat-Zinn explores the connections between mind and body to the point where there is no longer any obvious division between the two. This book offers the reader access to a new way of living that is rooted in mindfulness. The instructions offered are easy to understand. This book is primarily intended for those facing chronic or terminal illness or emotional pain, but it can really benefit a far more general audience - those who want to live their lives more fully.
The reason I gave only 4 stars is, that I think with a little bit more voice modulation and emotional expression the audio-book would have been even more enjoyable.
