"Far from being either a harmless form of New Age self-indulgence or meditation dressed up as a medicalized antidote to the ubiquitous stresses of modern life, Ron Purser sees the mindfulness movement as epitomizing a malignant trend of contemporary Western individualism, one that is blinding us to the social problems of inherent in neoliberalism and capitalism, providing an anodyne where what is needed is rigorous analysis and political action."
- Barry Magid, author of What's Wrong With Mindfulness
"McMindfulness makes an important critique of self-centered mindfulness and points us towards a new vision for real social change."
- Christopher Titmuss, author of The Political Buddha
"Ron Purser cuts through the comforting New Age jargon used to promote mindfulness, enabling us to distinguish between the practice and its marketing."
- Richard Payne, Institute of Buddhist Studies
