Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world

Professor Mark Williams, Dr Danny Penman


‘A deeply compassionate guide to self-care – simple and profound’ Sir Kenneth Branagh

‘If you want to free yourself from anxiety and stress, and feel truly at ease with yourself, then read this book’ Ruby Wax

Authoritative, beautifully written and much-loved by its readers, Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world has become a word-of-mouth bestseller and global phenomenon. It reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to break the cycle of anxiety, stress unhappiness and exhaustion. It promotes the kind of happiness that gets into your bones and allows you to meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage.

Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). Co-developed by Professor Mark Williams of Oxford University, MBCT is recommended by the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression. But, equally, it works for the rest of us who aren’t depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the relentless demands of the modern world.

By investing just a few minutes each day, this classic guide to mindfulness will put you back in control of your life once again.

Latest reviews

Fantastic book, would recommend it to everyone. It has changed the way I view life and to take time to be in the moment and become more present in my life. Currently on week 2 of the programme, but have read through the book and looking forward to completing the next 6 weeks, have learnt and taken on so much from this book. Now I truly understand what Mindfulness means and how I can apply it toy life.
