It's written in a very accessible way and acknowledges all the challenges you're going to meet as you attempt to introduce more mindfulness to your life. I got the audio version and have enjoyed the guided meditations. The eight week program is a good way to ease into the practice.
This might just be the book that helps me embed mindfulness as a way of life!
So I was at about week 6 on the APP when the book arrived. All I can say is that you must have the book as well as the APP. I am continuing with the APP and have learnt so much from the book so far. Thank you to the authors for this clearly explained work. I feel like a light bulb has been turned on.

By chance I came across this book and I am glad I did!
The first chapters elaborate on the why and how Mindfulness can help you to better manage your inner critical voices as well as it helps you to understand how these thoughts occur, and that you are not the only one with (critical) thoughts.
The next chapters will guide you through an 8 week course of Mindfulness, including the tracks on the accompanying CD. There are many Mindfulness apps on the market, but for me personally, it was especially important what each mindfulness track/training was trying to teach you.
I have not been very good at doing the daily mindfulness trainings, let alone completing the training week by week. I started the book/8 week course about 6 months ago and I have just finished week 5 - BUT I started to improve and feel better very soon after week 1 or 2. If you can finish it as recommended in the book, great! If not, and like me you do it your own pace - you will still feel a difference!
What is the secret of succeeding like this? I believe it is the fruit of one of the main practices of mindfulness: compassion/ self-compassion. The authors have put themselves completely in the position of the reader and worked from that standpoint with their head and their heart.
Before I was using meditation for just relaxing - which is fine if that is what you most need. But now I feel I am growing. I am grateful for finding this book although I did not even know I was looking.
