£9.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

The mental health and mindfulness bestseller from A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled and How to be Human author Ruby Wax, who shows us why and how our minds can send us mad and how we can rewire our thinking to calm ourselves in a frenetic world.



'Finally - a map for the troubled human mind. And it's funny.' -Caitlin Moran



Ruby Wax - comedian, writer and mental health campaigner - shows us how our minds can jeopardize our sanity.



With her own periods of depression and now a Masters from Oxford in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy to draw from, she explains how our busy, chattering, self-critical thoughts drive us to anxiety and stress.



If we are to break the cycle, we need to understand how our brains work, rewire our thinking and find calm in a frenetic world.



Helping you become the master, not the slave, of your mind, here is the manual to saner living.

Customer Reviews

I bought this book both to better understand myself and also to understand my wife's depression. Whilst reading, it is difficult not to hear Ruby's voice - her personality shines through the written text. It's an easy book to read and lays a basic foundation of several important subjects - mindfulness, psychology, neurology... If anything, this book is rather special BECAUSE we all know Ruby from television and can therefore all the better relate to what she's saying.
