Product description


As somebody who suffers from severe depression, I know the depressive's harshest critic is themselves. It is never helpful to be told to pull ourselves together by others but saying it to ourselves leads us in only one direction - into a spiralling descent into despair. This wise and perceptive book teaches us self-compassion and the consolations of kindness. I recommend it all the time. (Sally Brampton)

The increasing drive to find a competitive edge in all aspects of our lives may create efficiencies but it is cold, heartless and unpleasant to live with. Gilbert shows how and why this occurs, and why a capacity for compassion is the antidote. Trust Gilbert - he knows the difference between wisdom and knowledge. (Oliver James, author of They F*** You Up and Affluenza)

Anyone who struggles with their inner critic should make sure to read this book. Professor Gilbert writes in a masterly fashion about compassionate mind training - an innovative approach which is likely to grow in importance over the next decade as the evidence for its benefit continues to build. (David VealePresident British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies 2006-8)

Paul Gilbert is one of the most brilliant scientists studying compassion today. In this wonderful book, he makes his theories very accessible and down-to-earth. You feel like you're having a chat in his living-room with a warm cup of tea. I also love his easy-to-follow exercises, which offer concrete ways to help you develop greater compassion in daily life. (Kristin Neff Associate Professor of Human Development, University of Texas at Austin)

Like so frequently in the past, Paul Gilbert has come forth again with a book about the mind, its unused potential, and how to harness that potential to one's and others' benefit. The Compassionate Mind is a roadmap to compassion for the self and towards others. It is a book for those curious enough to explore their hidden potential to attain a special kind of humanness and happiness. A 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. (Michael McGuire, author Darwinian Psychiatry)

A useful addition to any nursing library and ... of interest to anyone with a concern for mental health issues. (Learning Disability Practice)

Deeply empowering (Kindred Spirit magazine)

Important and enjoyable. (The Psychologist)
