What is the Rodale Mindfulness Book?
Rodale is a publishing company that publishes many health and wellness books. They have many great books. There is one book in particular that I would recommend, The Rodale Mindfulness book by Mark Williams and Danny Penman.
Danny Penman is an award-winning journalist who has worked for the BBC. Mark Williams is an Oxford professor and a founding fellow of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy. Watch the video below to hear Mark speak about the book and the science behind it.

Why read the Rodale Mindfulness Book?
In this book, the authors reveal tips on living a happier, less anxious, stressful, and exhausting life. It sounds almost too good to be true. But the science that is used to back up their strategies makes this book worth your time.
According to Rodale, this book,
“promotes the kind of happiness and peace that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage.”
They aren’t just tooting their own horns. There are a ton of great reviews for this book.
The author of Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman says,
“Want a happier, more content life? I highly recommend the down-to-earth methods you’ll find in this book. Professor Mark Williams and Dr. Danny Penman have teamed up to give us scientifically grounded techniques we can apply in the midst of our everyday challenges and catastrophes.”
Goldie Hawn was quoted;
“Peace can’t be achieved in the outside world unless we have peace on the inside. Mark Williams and Danny Penman’s book gives us this peace.”
Head on over to Amazon to read the reviews. There are reviews from mindfulness skeptics that have changed their opinions about mindfulness. Which to me is a true sign of a good book. You can also purchase the book on Amazon for a better price than I have seen anywhere else.
This book takes the eight-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course that I suggest and helps you put it into practice. I would highly recommend that you also take a look at the free course in my post 7 Reasons You Should Try Palouse Mindfulness.
