Reviews

"A deeply compassionate, extremely practical and much-needed guide to creating a rich, full and meaningful life while living with chronic illness. This book skilfully plots a mindfulness-based, Values-guided path to reducing your suffering and increasing your vitality, regardless of the nature of your illness."

Dr Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap

"The author, clinical psychologist Ray Owen, writes in an accessible, easy to read style. He avoids jargon, explaining things in a lay person's terms. He introduces us to four people, all with long term conditions (LTCs), and he uses these folk to explain the problems LTCs bring and how the techniques in the book can help. We can see elements of ourselves in these people. Owen does not belittle the problems that a LTC can bring for both patient and their loved ones - the limitations, frustrations, loss, physical and emotional suffering and his approach is not a `quick fix'."
