Professionals interested in learning mindfulness and ways to practice it in their life or with the people they serve may find the book, “Change Your Story Change Your Brain” of value. Collectively, the book is composed of four sections pertaining to mindfulness: Mindfulness as a Survival Strategy, The Mindfulness Mentality, Mindfulness as the Road to Recovery, and Mindfulness as a Path of Self-Discovery. Within each section are three to four chapters. Each chapter covers a different concept related to mindfulness and is approached according to a specific format which includes an illustration of the NOW approach (i.e. Notice, Opportunities and Within), a description of how the topic is related to the Path of Mindfulness, and a section referred to as Practice. Such a format makes the content easy to follow and apply. The book is relatively brief; therefore, the content covered in this review will consist of a chapter from each section to help illustrate some of the concepts discussed and to encourage professionals to consider learning more about mindfulness.
