One of the most surprising and promising trends in business today is the rise of mindfulness in the workplace. From small companies to multinational corporations, more and more people are meditating on the job, and with good reason: mindfulness can make us more focused, more effective, and happier.

This book is an investigation into the growing trend among major companies, including Fortune 100 giants to promote mindfulness activites like yoga and meditation in the workplace and the often surprising impact it has on productivity, strategy and employee's mental health.
