about this item

This book provides new perspectives on the seminal work of Ellen Langer, sometimes called “the mother of mindfulness”.  Influential to many investigators, and a forerunner of the positive psychology movement, Langer identified and studied the concepts of mindfulness and mindlessness from a motivational viewpoint.  Linking these states to how decisions are made, she explored the ways that they contribute to productivity, building confidence, healthy aging and general well being.  Noted scholars at Harvard (Langer’s own institution) celebrate her work, highlighting its historical importance and contemporary relevance.
