"The adage to “live in the present” is a centerpiece of one of the most rapidly ascending lines of inquiry in healthcare today: mindfulness research and practice. So Ninivaggi’s Learned Mindfulness could not be timelier or more significant. Although aimed at physicians, this unusually comprehensive book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand how the practice of mindfulness can fuel energy, engagement, and ultimately well-being." — Kathleen M. Sutcliffe, PhD. Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Johns Hopkins University
