The Mindfulness Prescription for Adult ADHD: An 8-Step Program for Strengthening Attention, Managing Emotions, and Achieving Your Goals
Reviewed by Rajnish Mago, MD:
Excellent book with very specific and very practical guidance in how to practice various mindfulness-based meditations. The comments are directed at persons with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder BUT the practices are suitable for anyone. I don’t see any reason why this book is not highly suitable for anyone wanting to practice mindfulness meditation.
The book is written in a simple and clear style. It walks the reader through the exact steps of practicing meditation. The reader is encouraged to start with simple and brief practice, and then progress gradually.
