    Get Some Headspace

    Andy Puddicombe
    St. Martin's Griffin, 2012

    This is the first book I wrote. In many ways it has everything you need to get started, even if you've never tried anything like mindfulness before. It also outlines the science behind the benefits of meditation and mindfulness, intermingled with my own experiences. It has a light and humorous tone.

    Thrive

    Arianna Huffington
    Harmony Books, 2014

    This book covers mindfulness in quite some detail, but also looks at the wider impact of our addiction to technology, overly active minds and increasingly busy lives. It offers some excellent commentary on mindfulness, along with some very sound advice.

    The Mindful Child

    Susan Kaiser Greenland
    Free Press, 2010

    I was 11 years old when my mother introduced me to meditation, and I'm a big advocate of young people learning to meditate. This book gives a practical and straightforward approach with lots of tips and exercises to get children engaged in mindfulness techniques.
