The forces of dissonance are all around us. They gnaw at us and eventually turn us into a person we neither recognize nor want to be. One of the few research proven antidotes to these ravages of chronic stress, over commitment, and being too busy, is working on our mindfulness.

Don’t worry, you will not start to levitate after reading this book, but if you heed his message and practical steps, you will be healthier, experience heightened cognitive performance, and be more open to possibilities.
