Reviews

"His journey will open your mind to the possibilities of mindfulness" -- Polly Vernon * Sunday Telegraph *
"Teach us to Sit Still made me laugh; it made me cry; and it made me seriously think about taking up Vispassana meditation" -- Will Self * The Times *
"A searingly honest, viscerally vivid, darkly comic self-examination of the connections between writing personality and health. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to stop" -- David Lodge * Guardian *
"This is a crazy, wince-inducing, uplifting book... Parks has done a service to the many people who would never look at a cheesy self-help book or try anything with a whiff of spirituality about it" * Financial Times *
"A movingly honest book that is about a great deal more than breathing and meditation" -- Susan Hill * The Lady *
