Not for me, but certainly for other people
The author lost me right at the beginning with her "natural birth at home" story. To me it sounded way too woo-y. If your into the whole "natural is best" thing, this is for you. If you are looking for a secular and more scientifically explained approach to mindfulness (like me), it's not for you.
Not entirely. If I want to buy other books from this genre, I will just have a better look at them first. I bought this on a whim.
I just loved the reader's voice and accent!
had some good points
