Review quote

'A book full of wisdom that will be a wonderful resource for a whole generation.'
Mark Williams, author of Mindfulness
This important book explores how the way our minds evolved can cause us to have difficult emotions and explains how to respond wisely and compassionately to them and to the stresses of our everyday lives.
Research shows that the ability to develop mindful compassion towards oneself and others has a profound impact on our minds, health and happiness, and on those around us.
Paul Gilbert OBE is a clinical psychologist, the author of the internationally bestselling books The Compassionate Mind and Overcoming Depression, and a pioneer in the field of Compassion Focused Therapy.
