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)
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)
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. (Daily Express)
In this book, she puts her hilarity in service of the important message that we can change our own minds to live better lives. Her disquisition will be wonderfully helpful to those whose minds need changing, and wonderfully entertaining to everyone else. (Andrew Solomon, author of Far From the Tree)
Ruby Wax is brave, generous and hilarious - the perfect guide on a tour of the brain and how it workings affect our overall well-being. And she is passionate about our collective need to tap into the power of mindfulness to help still our minds in an age of speed, hyperconnectivity and distraction. (Arianna Huffington, New York Times-bestselling author of Thrive)
Finally -- a map for the troubled human mind. And it's funny. (Caitlin Moran, author of How to Be a Woman)
A very funny book about how to be calm and poised and not bonkers. (Helen Fielding, author of Bridget Jones’s Diary)
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.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

The juxtaposition of science and Ruby Wax's musings and personal story is bizarre at times, as she comes across as vapid as a peroxide factory blond one minute, a sage the next, and then writes authoritatively on the workings of the brain!
And that's what makes it great. It's the kind of book you can give to your depressed and anxious friends without feeling like a patronising new age nuisance.
It's refreshing and consoling because it's honest. It makes complex material astonishingly accessible. Not once does it begin to feel trite or a little 'culty'. Then it delivers a set of tools that so simple to use you can't believe it when they actually work better than anything you've tried before. Ruby isn't the only one benefitting from her late-onset education. Anyone who reads this book will.
I most certainly did.
Ruby has reinvented herself several times. What most people don't know is that she suffered from depression. Ruby is the last person that you would suspect to suffer from depression. After twenty five years in television, Ruby was out of luck and suffered an emotional setback.
Ruby returned to school to study mindfulness cognitive therapy. She has written this book to help the rest of us understand why we beat ourselves up so much and self abuse. This book is written by a witty self deprecated personality who helps understand in such a funny way.
The book is broken down into five parts entitled "What's Wrong With Us? For the Normal-Mad;" "What's Wrong With Us? For the Mad-Mad;" "What's in Your Brain/What's on Your Mind?;" "Mindfulness-Taming Your Mind;" and "Alternative Suggestions for Peace of Mind."
