Review:

An outrageously witty and accessible guide for a healthier, happier life * Publisher's description * A wonderful book full of passion and verve.

She shows how to meet - face to face - all that life throws at us, and gives her own step by step guide to finding deep stillness in the midst of the chaos -- Prof. Mark Williams Ruby Wax has written a guide to mindfulness that's as hilarious as it is useful. Drawing on the latest science, she offers insightful, irreverent advice on how to improve every aspect of our lives, from our health and happiness to our relationships and careers. -- Arianna Huffington So witty, clever and accessible you'll be devouring every word... there's no better place to start than with this sparkling gem of a book * Heat * Whip-smart on the subject... she teaches the art of doing nothing in a way that doesn't send you to sleep * The Times * Witty and accessible * Woman & Home * This witty, smart and accessible read should be top of your reading list * Closer * This frank, hilarious guide will make you laugh AND offers useful advice for everyone. Win-win * Look Magazine * A beginner's guide to the science behind mindfulness * Sunday Times * Well timed and combines a theoretical, practical and personal account of mindfulness... an easy, uplifting, humorous read * The Psychologist * If the idea of mindfulness has always seemed a bit wishy-washy, you'll be pleased to know Ruby Wax once felt the same way. Now the comedienne has written a guide to mindfulness that is a sensible way to cope with stress * Yours Magazine * Wax's guide comes infused with her characteristic wit * Mail on Sunday Event Magazine * This gem of a read will point you towards a more contented way of life... her passion and dedication to mental health are evident in every page * The Lady * An accessible guide to mindfulness from the comedian and cognitive therapist * S magazine, Sunday Express * Ruby Wax shows how and why change is a good thing * Woman's Way * Ruby Wax offers her own witty and accessible take on how mindfulness really can, in her view, change lives for the better * Choice Magazine * [Ruby] has turned her own experiences into a life-affirming message for others -- Sandi Toksvig on 'Sane New World' She can make your ribs ache with laughter [and then] wrench your head round to see the darkness in the world and how to deal with it. No-one deserves to be recognised more... I adore her. -- Joanna Lumley on 'Sane New World' Ruby Wax has an extraordinary mind, and she has brought it to bear with trademark wit and searing honesty... A ruby beyond price -- Stephen Fry on 'Sane New World' Through humor and unbridled truth, Ruby Wax shares her journey to mindfulness, illuminating how it can improve our state of mind and change our brain for a healthier, happier life -- Goldie Hawn on 'Sane New World' Ruby Wax is brave, generous and hilarious - the perfect guide on a tour of the brain -- Arianna Huffington on 'Sane New World' Finally - a map for the troubled human mind.
