In our world, we are constantly driving for success. And, at what expense? Reading Stopping has inspired me to remember who I am and value those things I see as important. As I recover from a severe illness which resulted in a Grinding Halt, this book helped me step away, be OK with relaxation and think through next steps.

A wonderful book with ideas that you can implement from the first chapter onward! More than anything, this book promotes a healthy amount of self reflection regarding slowing down and being more mindful. After reading it, I bought a second copy and gave it to a good friend. I will definitely be re-reading parts of this book so that I can refresh these ideas for myself.

The author shows how unremitting activity causes unthinking actions, but also does not allow for any self reflection. Without the self reflection, our goals tend to fizzle and we become dissatisfied.

This is a straightforward but profound book on cultivating pauses in our lives to enrich our lives and ultimately improve the quality of our existence. It seeks to maximize "the beats in between the notes" as moments to cherish.

In a rush/rush world that seems to have ADD, the suggestions of author David Kundtz resonate. It offers excellent suggestions to "sharpening the saw" by incorporating tiny, medium-sized or extended pause points in our lives to step back, take stock and get ourselves centered.

A wonderful book that merits multiple readings!

This book is a wonderful way to introduce the concept of meditation as a part of life without ever calling it meditation. I'll be using it with all my clients who are reluctant to try meditation for fear it won't fit with their lifestyles. Kundtz succeeds in clearly describing the benefits of "stopping" and noticing, even for a few moments, and does this in language that is accessible to everyone. "Stopping" is an essential survival skill in our crazy, hectic lives. I highly recommend this book to anyone who feels they are living their lives running faster and faster, like hamsters on a wheel. "Stopping" teaches how to begin to get off the wheel in a way that fits into our lives.

The book explains the idea of stopping in the midst of work and taking a mental, physical and spiritual break. Kundtz says the best way to be productive and healthy is to occasionally do nothing, and the book makes a strong case for this. I enjoyed it and learned a few tips that were helpful. It's not a revolutionary book ... for most of us it's a perfect reminder that a deep breath and short meditation is an ideal way to a healthier life.
This isn't a bad book, and I'm sure that many readers will find it well worth while. If you've had much experience of meditation or books on the subject, though, you're unlikely to get much new substance out of this one.
Kundtz is an awkward writer in many places, and his use of poorly thought out analogies (particularly computer-related ones) frankly made me wince from time to time.
