Just had a chance to review Carmen Yuen’s “Cosmos in a Carrot” (on Amazon) and I thought the review itself makes a broader point that is of possible interest to a PsychCentral mindful eating reader. So, here it is.
Mindful eating is one of my writing topics. So, you’d think, I really shouldn’t be supporting competition, so to say, but I don’t operate like that. If I like the book, of course, I am going to say so. So, I am researching for my next project and I stumble upon “Cosmos in a Carrot” by Carmen Yuen (Parallax Press,2006) and, after about an hour with it, I have this thought: if I had read this sooner, I, perhaps, would not have tried to publish my own mindful eating project, Eating the Moment (which originated back in 2000 but I didn’t get around to submitting the manuscript for publication until 2007, a year after “Cosmos in a Carrot” was written).
