Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Mark Williams and Danny Penman

Mindfulness (2011) guides readers through eight weeks of meditation specially designed to bring greater peace of mind. The result of a collaboration between a biochemist and a clinical psychologist, this is a scientifically-grounded course that paves the way to greater mental well-being while busting plenty of myths along the way.

  • Anyone looking for an oasis of calm in today’s hectic world
  • Rational thinkers who have been put off by the spiritual associations of mindfulness
  • Readers interested in the life of the mind

Mark Williams was a professor of clinical psychology at Oxford University before his recent retirement. A founder of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, he also authored the 2007 book The Mindful Way Through Depression.
