    " Fabulous - whether or not you have kids. "

    " I could not get into this book. Although the premise of taking at least 10 minutes out of your day to be more mindful (focused, appreciative, aware) sounds good, I could have gotten the message in just 10 pages instead of a whole book. I did like Goldie Hawn's personal reflections, and I think that she sounds like someone I would enjoy being around. "

    " Enjoyed reading this to teach myself to be more mindful and hopefully my child will follow by example. "

    " The day this book came out I saw Goldie Hawn interviewed about it and knew immediately I'd like to read it. Very insightful tools to help parents reduce the stress abd anxiety in their children's life, as well as their own. Scientific info on how the brain works under worry or happiness was very interesting and not wordy but still thorough. Book would make a wonderful gift for any parent! "

    " Thougthtful, provocative, I enjoyed it. Used a few of the ideas with my neices and nephews and had a great time. This book tells us nothing that we don't already know, however pointing it out with gentle reminders adds to its endearment. I have recommended this book to quite a few people already. "

    " Lots of wonderful insight to get kids thinking about good habits,positive thinking,be aware of their surroundings and just have fun!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrishna | 12/20/2013

    " A friend told me to read this and it was great advice! Hawn gives simple, step-by-step instructions on teaching mindfulness and meditative breathing to children. As a family, we have been going over one section per week, and I am already seeing progress. The children are using the terminology and noticing when their "Guard Dogs" come out and trying to use their "Wise Old Owls" to make less impulsive decisions when they are stressed or upset. This book is simple to read, simple to understand and simple to implement. I highly recommend it to anyone hoping to increase the emotional intelligence of their children. "

    " Excellent book for educators who want some simple practical advice that will really make a difference in the classroom from a mom and a lay person's perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mykl | 10/8/2013

    " My review is biaed by seeing the mindup video on youtube that was truly inspirational: showing young children learning mindfulness to cope with diffiucult feelings/experiences. The book provides straight foward info on brain devlopment/mindfulness for all ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 9/19/2013

    " The books has great concepts and good intentions but I found it boring to read. "

    " Good read for parents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 4/28/2013

    " Eye opening and validating - VERY important and useful information with regards to our culture and Education system- written at a pretty low reading level so that it is accessible to all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna | 4/13/2013

    " Maybe if this hadn't been an audio book I would have stuck with it because I could have skimmed through the stuff I already know about how the brain works. I was looking for some practical advice on teaching mindfulness and gave up on it before I found any. Maybe will pick up at another time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 1/13/2013

    " I need to listen to this again and in pieces to implement into my life. I loved the guard dog analogy and use it with my children. I wish my school would get the program. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica | 10/27/2012

    " I read this book last spring and summer and enjoyed it so much that I also listened to it on audio on walks as well :-) "

    " Goldie is a true sweetheart. I believe if everybody in the world could follow her philosophy I think the world would finally be at peace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 9/17/2012

    " A good introduction to the MindUp program and some tips on helping children to learn mindfulness. I'd be interested in reading the full program. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tamilyn | 7/2/2012

    " EASY, EASY read and great, useful way to explain meditation and brain functioning to well, virtually anyone. i thought Goldie's personal recollections were a little cheesy but, well, she is Goldie Hawn and the daughter of her parents.I use this with clients of all ages often. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Belinda | 6/4/2012

    " Great book, lots of helpful information that everyone could use in their daily life. :) I am hoping to use this information to help my son have a more positive outlook and to better control his emotions. I am planning to use it for myself as well. Everyone has room for improvement. ;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 4/6/2012

    " An interesting book with great advice but it is not a "Goldie Hawn" book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 4/4/2012

    " An excellent introduction to mindfulness. Focus on children and how they can be taught and benefit from mindfulness :) "
