Focusing first and foremost on achieving calmness and sustaining it with beautiful explanations of meditation techniques, this book is for everyone that had ever experienced any kind of stressful situation in their lives.
This book doesn't force you into Buddhism, yet it presents the ideas with simplicity and compassion. The idea of being mindful about the small things, like eating, walking, talking with people. Through short chapters that aren't heavy on philosophy, taking a moment to find peace within ourselves by becoming, basically, addicted to happiness, never sounded better.
The book is small, yet has big ideas on how to look on life through different perspective. Because of the simple writing, it's an easy reading for a beginner. How does the idea of becoming mindful while doing trivial things, like washing dishes, sound like?
The book doesn't claim it can change your life, it shows you, trough little steps, how to be more appreciative in life, slow down and enjoy life.
