Michael Bunting has been teaching mindfulness to executive leaders and business people for more than 16 years. During that time he has learnt to teach this subject to a rushed and cynical audience who need both a simplified and sophisticated approach to the subject. This book has been requested by his multinational clients for over a decade. Michael’s co-author, Patrick Kearney, is one of the world’s leading scholars on the 4 foundations of mindfulness (THE guide to mindfulness). Patrick brings an uncommon depth and clarity to the subject. The book is written specifically for beginners and for business people. However, it also takes the subject further than just a beginner’s guide and allows the reader to venture into deeper mindfulness territory. Throughout, it remains simple, easy to understand, and cynic-proof. Although it reads as a stand-alone book, it also serves as a companion guide to Michael’s book, The Mindful Leader.
