The Misted Mirror: Mindfulness for Schools and Universities is a work of non-fiction in the advice and guidance, educational and mental health sub-genres, and was penned by doctor and author Peter Mack. As the title suggests, the work puts a particular focus on the importance of mental clarity and reducing stress for students in the age range of approximately 13 to 20 years. This is, of course, a time when educational and personal stress levels can be particularly high, leading to problems with educational progress. The book lays out practical strategies for success that can be implemented into the curriculum and advises teachers, students, counselors, and parents alike on how to achieve the mindfulness skill.

Author Dr. Peter Mack has crafted an excellent toolkit which can be taken forward into any educational institution and delivered with confidence by those who read its guidance. The work is well organized to explain the concepts clearly, whatever your level of knowledge or skill with the material, and it delivers a logical build-up of ideas that culminate with some great resources to put directly into action. One of the things that impressed me most (as a Ph.D. student interested in creative education myself) was the implementation of art-based methods of expression and mindfulness, which was a fantastic appendix of new ideas to try. Innovative, inspiring, and future-focused in its holistic approach, I would highly recommend The Misted Mirror: Mindfulness for Schools and Universities to all those working in education today.
