didn't read the full book, however, I can tell it guides the reader thru a simple but sensible approach to slowly and seamlessly make the shift from "automatic pilot thinking" towards more mindful and "grounded" thinking - I personally noticed a change as compared to before the book, having said that, I did previously read another material from same author, the one addressing professionals -the one I'm reviewing here being for patients- it was a tremendous help for me to first understand the overall process from a scientific perspective. you may also check it out: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression: A New Approach to Preventing Relapse.
