"In this second edition, Stahl and Goldstein cover the basics of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and so much more. Thoughtful exercises as well as guided audio practices offer a healing and compassionate path toward greater self-awareness, wisdom, and connectedness to the depth and richness of the present moment. With commitment, practice, and this book, you can learn to live a less stressful and more meaningful life. I highly recommend it."

"When I struggle with anxious thoughts, and worry holds my body hostage, the most powerful tools in my mindfulness practice are found right here in this book. Who knew that following my breath moment by moment and noticing each thought, feeling, and sensation that arises without labeling it good or bad could radically transform my life for the better? It sounds so simple, but it actually takes hard work and practice. That is why this book is essential and effective for anyone who is looking for relief from life's daily uncertainty and stress. The techniques can be found here and now."
--Wendy Millstine, NC, coauthor of the Five Good Minutes(R) series, Daily Meditations for Calming Your Anxious Mind, and Calming the Rush of Panic--Wendy Millstine, NC
"Together with straightforward exercises, reflections, and inspiring stories, the authors have beautifully composed a book to help you explore and learn one of the most important skills of human life: being present to it. We cannot control all stressors of life, but this book can teach you how to engage with them differently, creating more freedom, awareness, and choice."
--Daniel Ek, MS, clinical psychologist, mindfulness teacher, and coauthor of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Stress Reduction--Daniel Ek, MS
"A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook presents a clear and insightful road map for those looking to manage and ease their distress. Whether you have years of experience with mindfulness or this will be your first introduction, Stahl and Goldstein do a masterful job of providing an easy-to-implement plan that has significant depth. I look forward to recommending this book to anyone interested in learning more about how mindfulness can help reduce stress and other emotional challenges."
