Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Calm by Michael Acton Smith, read by Maria Teresa Creasey.

Trains delayed, kids squabbling before bedtime, endless emails filling the inbox: everyone needs more calm in their life.

The evidence in favour of calmness is huge. Practices like meditation and mindfulness improve life expectancy, productivity at work, health and even personal happiness. And you can reach Calm any way you like: take a walk with nowhere to go, savour a chocolate on the tip of your tongue, plant a seed, doodle pointlessly, notice the world around you. Smile, breathe and go slowly.

This unique handbook is filled with activities, inspiration and clearly explained research. It can be read in any order you like, encouraging every reader to find their own path to calmness. Working with mindfulness gurus and neurological experts alike, Michael Acton Smith has created a project that will finally bring Calm into the mainstream.

Michael Acton Smith, OBE, is the co-founder of the hugely successful Calm app. In 2014 he was appointed an OBE for services to the creative industries. Michael Acton Smith is frequently listed among the most influential people in the digital industry and has appeared in the Guardian's '100 Most Powerful People in Media', Wired's 'Top 100 of Britain's Digital Power', and The Times' '100 to Watch list'.
