Description

Could we be happier? Calmer? Better human beings? 

In this Audible Original, Ruby Wax hunts down her heroes - brain scientists - in the UK and across America, to learn more about what makes us tick: why we get stressed, how we feel pain, what makes us addicted - and has a lot of fun along the way.  

She faces death with Past Mortems author Carla Valentine, explores how video games affect our attention with gamification expert Gabe Zichermann, and discovers the benefits of vaginal smearing with Professor Tim Spector. Natural Born Learners author Alex Beard reveals what teenagers really need to know for a good education and visitors to a New York soup kitchen help Ruby confront her fear of compassion. 

In No-Brainer Ruby draws on memories of her own difficult childhood and long history of depression and makes you laugh out loud with her frank observations and anarchic questions. You’ll learn a lot about your brain, and hear a ton of advice on how to use it better.

Ruby gets in the way

This conveys great information in an interview format but there were times I wanted to scream, “Ruby...TOO MUCH INFORMATION!!!” Her self-disclosures were often helpful but a few were painful to hear (her mother placing her daughter’s hand on a hot burner to teach her not to touch a hot stove - what psychosis is this?}. Others were inappropriate; joking about smearing her babies with her own vaginal fluid because they were born by c-section and thus, did not have the antibodies that come with a vaginal birth. I could have lived without that. Other insights were good; a high point was an interview with a woman who lives with constant pain from a spinal cord injury serenely and without drugs, using mindfulness and meditation. Amazing. But Ruby got in the way too often.

Love It

Funny take on the hard topic of depression and how to deal with it. Listening to Ruby's voice in this audiobook gave me so much more than reading it in a paper book. Happy to recommend it to anyone who like to learn about depression, the brain and how to handle it/yourself. Thanks Ruby! /V

Announcement: the ending in a new voice

The book is fun and just enough useful starter content is heard in each chapter. Then, "A novice hopes you' ve enjoyed this program. " is heard in a new, living person's voice. This is what I've been waiting for for so long.

Broad Generalizations Abound

This is a narration around parts of podcasts. I tolerated the author talking over guests, bad jokes, use of the word fireman twice in the first few chapters, and the overgeneralizations resulting from "people are like this" rather than using adjectives such as most, some, etc. The final straw for me was when one of Ruby's experts said that we now know that troubled children come from troubled parents. That kind of statement is so unfair to the parents of children who have mental health issues or trauma. This book boldly perpetuates this nonsense. Since I could not trust the information to be accurate, the book was returned.

In my opinion Ruby's most interesting work.

Very funny as usual, but the style of this audio book - it only being made for audio - allowed for very informative, interesting and unheard-of conversations about the important questions on our brain, why we get addicted and how the brain processes addiction, but it also tackles big questions like death and aging, all discussed with specialists.
