There is much to like about this book: The advantages of mindfulness and their applicability to personal and business life are well covered.

My main reason for only giving this book three stars, is that for someone who is already familiar with mindfulness meditation, there is little new. It was still worth reading -- I am inconsistent enough at actually practicing meditation to make any reminders in that direction useful -- but it was definitely more of a refresher than anything else.… (more)
