'The writers' clear, authoritative voices and many years of experience supporting students with specific learning differences in higher education adds an extra dimension in respect of the practical use of mindfulness techniques. The simplicity of the presentation belies the complexity of the content. It's a powerful combination and one which I heartily recommend to both students and their tutors.’
