The Serial Abuse of Mindfulness

I'm always mindful ( couldn't wait to get that word in, mindfully of course ) of fundamental principles.

Has anyone written a book on Mindful Tai Chi? The Mindfulness of Qi gong? The Mindful Practise of Mindful Tai Chi?

Sorry, can't help thinking that I must use the word Mindful just like all those idiots in the late 1980s/early 1990s used their fingers to mimic inverted commas as if it was some bleeding edge, state of the art communication tool.

Seems like Mindfulness has been hijacked as the latest buzzword to appear in a thousand book titles. Has anyone written Death by Mindfulness? The Mindful Politician?  Couldn't see them on the bookshelves in London yesterday.
