Books for a Better Life was born sixteen years ago with the intention of recognising self-improvement authors, a genre impacting the second half of the 20th century more than any other. The winners will be announced during an awards ceremony in New York City on the 12th March 2012.

'Marth Beck writes like a wizard – her magic trick is turning people into their true selves' Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way
Driven by Goldie Hawn’s lifelong interest in the practice of mindfulness and her commitment to the welfare of children everywhere, the Hawn Foundation has developed the MindUP programme to help children reach their full potential.
10 Mindful Minutes shares the secrets of this groundbreaking programme. Though simple techniques such as mindful breathing, sensing and thinking, it will help parents and children alike to focus on feelings of gratitude, kindness and optimism that will improve relationships, increase performance through better concentration and lead to emotionally healthy and happy lives.
‘This is a remarkable book . . . Read it and use it: you may find you are doing nothing less than given back to your children their childhood, while they still have the chance to live it’ Mark Williams, Director, University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre and author of Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World
Finding Your Way in a Wild New World is available to buy now from Piatkus priced at £12.99. It is also available to download as an ebook from all of the major ebook retailers, so you can add this title to your Kindle, iPad, Kobo or Sony Reader. 10 Mindful Minutes will be published on the 1st March.
