Description

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.

Critiques

"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)
"In Sane 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)

Interesting content

... but the way the message is conveyed is just not for everyone (generalisations, jokes, sarcasm, ..). The organisation of the book is not clear to follow.

Love her!

This is the second book of Ruby's I read/listened to this month.
For me this is a fun way of learning, what is fun becomes easy.
Love that Ruby records her own audiobooks. It feels so much more personal and "Ruby" than a text book.

Love it, recomend it to you who need your learning with a dose of humor. /V

A lifeline for the frazzled

As a person who can get stuck in negativity and has a frazzled mind, this book as clarified a lot of issues for me and given me tools to get out of my head and back into reality. And Ruby Wax does it like nobody can with humor and a healthy amount of relativity.

Loved it

A personal story and scientific overview with an exhortation to practice mindfulness (and how to do it) without resorting to woo woo and fluffy thinking
