Additional Information

In the years since it was first published, this influential book based on the highly innovative findings of social psychologist Dr. Ellen J. Langer and her team of researchers at Harvard made its mark for its unique concept of mindfulness, thoroughly adapted to contemporary life in the West. Langer's theory has been applied to a wide number of fields, including health, business, aging, prejudice, and learning. There is now a new psychological assessment based on her work (called the Langer Mindfulness Scale) as well as an institute in Mexico founded to apply the concepts of mindfulness to health and wellness. In her introduction to this 25th anniversary edition, Dr. Langer outlines some of these exciting applications and suggests those still to come.

I can honestly say that, in many ways, this is one of the most important -- and life changing -- books I have ever read. I am giving it 5 stars as an overall review because of the significance of the message, even though I think the book could have used a more heavy-handed editor.

I became familiar with Langer's work only through articles that appeared occasionally in the New York Times. I am guilty of thinking, often, that any person featured there is the very best __________ (fill in the blank). I am often disappointed. But not this time.

I have been an on and off (with long periods of off) meditator for 20 years, and I can say with certainty: 1. I never liked it 2. I found this book to be infinitely more helpful with regard to catching my own self defeating patterns.

While this isn't a how-to book, and it doesn't include a list of steps towards Langer's definition of mindfulness (which I should mention is different from Buddhism's in many ways), I... Read more

"One day, at a nursing home in Connecticut, elderly residents were each given a choice of houseplants to care for and were asked to make a number of small decisions about their daily routines. A year and a half later, not only were these people more cheerful, active, and alert than a similar group in the same institution who were not given these choices and responsibilities, but many more of them were still alive. In fact, less than half as many of the decision-making, plant-minding residents had died as had those in the other group. This experiment, with its startling results, began over ten years of research into the powerful effects of what my colleagues and I came to call mindfulness, and of its counterpart, the equally powerful but destructive state of mindlessness.

Unlike the exotic `altered states of consciousness' that we read so much about, mindfulness and mindlessness are so common that few of us appreciate their... Read more
For you lovers of Jon Kabat-Zinn and MBSR, you may want to forgo this approach toward mindfulness. It's not self-help, not a guide, not a set of tenets or steps. But, Langer is a Harvard research psychologist who has been working in this field a long time and who has taken the topic in important and interesting directions that are different from MBSR. I am involved in both psychology and mindfulness, teaching both at the college level. If, however, you happen to be open minded, intelligent and curious in understanding the logic of our psyches, this is a good read. It's not clinical, but also not written for dummies. Great book, glad I found it becasue Langer's work is informing my own now.
