“If mindfulness observes, kindfulness practices compassion, and this, says Brahm, becomes the key to healing. Readers will find the book’s simple, gentle language and short chapters—with the most important points boldfaced—easy to follow. Perhaps following this gentle guide to countercultural thinking will bring some needed peace to a harried world.”
