    'This is a book that really can change your life' Arianna Huffington, author of the New York Times bestseller The Sleep Revolution

    Meditation is fascinating, but often it feels elusive. How can simple exercises change your mental state? How can focussing your breathing lead to changes in your personality? For the first time, Harvard collaborators Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson share the science behind the practice.

    Drawing on cutting edge research and sweeping away common misconceptions, they show how to improve your technique, how smart practice can cultivate selflessness, equanimity, love and compassion, and even redesign our neural circuitry.

    Whether you're a beginner or have meditated for years, bring mindfulness and meditation into your life with an essential read for the world we live in now.
