Comedian, writer and mental health campaigner shows us why and how our minds can send us mad and how we can rewire our thinking, especially through mindfulness, to calm ourselves in a frenetic world
Available at Bewdley, Martley Centre, Rubery, St Johns and Warndon.
Ruby Wax has an extraordinary mind, and she has brought it to bear with trademark wit and searing honesty on the subject of that mind, and the minds of all us. Very few will be able to read this wonderful contribution to the literature of mental health without recognising some part of themselves, and certainly of someone they know. A ruby beyond price.
Stephen Fry||I love this book more than I love Ruby. And that's saying quite a bit...in a loud, funny voice. Yes...I love this book. And I know books. And I know love. And Ruby's book is both.
Carrie Fisher||Ruby Wax combats ignorance with knowledge, confusion with crystal clarity, prejudice with open-mindedness, rigidity with humour and slays the dragon of stigma in this superb introduction to the twenty-first century science of the mind. This book will be a turning point in our battle to bring parity of esteem to mental and physical health. Explaining in simple language the nature of mental disorder and describing evocatively what you can do about it, is a substantial contribution to making our society a better place. This manual for living must be read by everyone.
Peter Fonagy, Freud Memorial Professor of Psychoanalysis at UCL||Ruby Wax is at her best in this wonderful book. Its acute observations are both extremely funny and deeply moving. Many people will be grateful for her courage, openness, humour and wisdom.
Mark Williams, author of Mindfulness||Ruby Wax combines neuroscience with her usual eloquence, clarity and humour. You will laugh and cry but certainly understand more about how to live a 'sane' life in our crazy, chaotic world.
Marjorie Wallace CBE, founder of SANE||InSane New World,Wax touches upon her own anxieties and fears with honesty and humour...it royally hauls a stigmatised fact of life kicking and laughing into the open.
The Times||Her wonderful, painfully funny and instructive book has inspired this depressive to sign up for mindfulness training.
Alison Pearson, The Telegraph||The book does succeed as a 'life manual' exactly because it is Ruby Wax who has written it...her life-affirming humour carries it through on a tide of quirky jokes and separate anecdotes from her life.
