Incredible life affirming book. Deeply researched and evidence based, but written in a very engaging style. I will read this again in the future, just for the pleasure and the positivity it engenders.

My daughter recommended this book about six months ago but it didn't grab me. Now I wonder what I was on. I've savored it over the past couple of weeks and I'm so happy I own a copy because I found underline-able wisdom in each chapter.

Langer's studies showed up in several recent reads including [b:Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End|20696006|Being Mortal Medicine and What Matters in the End|Atul Gawande|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1408324949s/20696006.jpg|40015533], so I found myself smiling with recognition on occasion. With curiosity and insight Langer presents study after study revealing our unintened mindlessness and its farreaching and often dilitorious effects and the simple ways to move toward mindfulness and its notable benefits.

As I study and write about the ways healthy people move through change, intention is my by-word. Mindfulness, as defined by Langer, seems a perfect alternate word choice for intention. I'm sure I'll refer to this work again and again.

Here's the first article I wrote referencing Langer's wisdom.

About the mindsets that lead human being - even the smartest - to become stupid and mindless. It demonstrates that mindlessness leads to dullness but on giving up on life itself.
