The landmark work on mindfulness, meditation, and healing, now revised and updated after twenty-five years  Stress. It can sap our energy, undermine  our health if we let it, even shorten our lives. It makes us more vulnerable to anxiety and depression, disconnection and disease. Based on Jon Kabat-Zinn’s renowned mindfulness-based stress reduction program, this classic, groundbreaking work—which gave rise to a whole new field in medicine and psychology—shows you how to use medically proven mind-body approaches derived from meditation and yoga to counteract stress, establish greater balance of body and mind, and stimulate well-being and healing. By engaging in these mindfulness practices and integrating them into your life from moment to moment and from day to day, you can learn to manage chronic pain, promote optimal healing, reduce anxiety and feelings of panic, and improve the overall quality of your life, relationships, and social networks. This second edition features results from recent studies on the science of mindfulness, a new Introduction, up-to-date statistics, and an extensive updated reading list. Full Catastrophe Living is a book for the young and the old, the well and the ill, and anyone trying to live a healthier and saner life in our fast-paced world.   Praise for Full Catastrophe Living   “One of the great classics of mind/body medicine . . . More than any other, Full Catastrophe Living is the book that enabled Americans to discover the inner life. This book has brought peace of mind to hundreds and thousands of people and healed countless lives. This is your chance to let it heal yours.”—Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D., author of Kitchen Table Wisdom   “A wonderful guidebook for those of us who choose life and healing . . . I hope you all make that choice and read the book.”—Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., author of Love, Medicine & Miracles   “Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn eloquently explains the power of paying attention and increasing awareness. I strongly recommend this book for everyone who wants to begin healing their life.”—Dean Ornish, M.D., author of Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease

4.0 Dopo tanto tempo..
Ho impiegato diverso tempo a leggere questo libro. Effettivamente la sua lettura è un po' pesante, come se ti arrivasse addosso un concentrato di nozioni e di esempi senza avere nemmeno il tempo di realizzare. Ma lo scrittore avvisa subito che non si tratta di un libro da leggere e basta, ma un vero...

4.0 Falling Awake
The net impact of this book, no matter how many encounters I have with it, is awakening. I’m not claiming it makes me “enlightened,” only that it accomplishes its purpose of teaching—or reminding—the reader how to be more fully alive and aware, moment by moment. Kabat-Zinn is a gentle teacher, a m...

A very good introduction to mindfulness. In order to get the most out of it, though, one needs to order the CDs in order to do the practice.

I'm assigning five stars based on the book's content and thoroughness. The real value remains to be determined after consistent practice of the program.

I read this book years ago and it has stayed with me. I tried to establish a meditation practice on my own, and didn't do so well, so I'm now taking a course through Penn and will be re-reading the book during the 8 week training. I'll update this review with the current read.
