When the world seems out if its mind, a little Vulcan mindfulness can be just the salve – I adore this adorable book.
– Bryan Fuller, co-creator of Star Trek: Discovery
Mr Spock’s Little Book of Mindfulness is one of those volumes that sticks in your mind and not just for the title. It can be a little whimsical in its narrative at times but the whole is such an engaging read with real love for the franchise permeating every page and word because Dakin manages to balance the line of keeping it tonally light while both honouring the legacy and poking that little bit of fun at the franchise with the twists and turns woven into Spock’s story – for continuity fans you’ll have a whale of a time I have no doubt.

From the inside cover
This book is a light-hearted exploration of the wisdom of Mr. Spock from the STAR TREK TV show and is not intended as a serious guide to mindfulness.
Unless you are half-Vulcan already, it will not enable you to overcome your emotional side, any more than it will teach you how to perform the Vulcan nerve pinch or mind-meld with a rock creature. As a look at human life from an alien point of view it may serve as a mildly helpful and occasionally amusing perspective.
To expect to achieve true enlightenment from a book of TV quotes and cartoons is not logical.
