He's talking about the new book: The Mindfulness Revolution: Leading Psychologists, Scientists, Artists, and Meditation Teachers on the Power of Mindfulness in Daily Life.

As Goldstein writes in his post, Are You a Part of the Mindfulness Revolution?, "Mindfulness is now being talked about as a catalyst for emotional intelligence which has applications in politics, business, sports, education, healthcare and so many other places."
