I have the Headspace app also. I have suffered from depression and anxiety most of my adult life. The app itself has been a great help for both of these issues. However, the book has taken my daily mindfulness meditation to another level and is a great companion to the app or wonderful on its own. I would recommend it to anyone who could use mindfulness and meditation to help with psychological stress is as well as physical stresses and disorders. Learning to relax the mind and turn relaxes the body, and the practice creates a non-judgemental awareness and understanding of how the body reacts to stressful situations. This often releases long-held tension that causes disorders and the physical body.
In mindfulness, it is possible to learn self-compassion through the recognition that situations outside ourselves, or out of our control, need not disturb our inner quiet moments. Each mind, no matter how full of clutter, is just waiting for a quiet moment to come into focus.
I highly recommend this book due to Andy's style of Storytelling to help explain abstract ideas on mindfulness meditation. I would recommend downloading the app also.
