3.0 out of 5 stars
A mixed bag, 3 Sep 2013
The sections of the book in which Ruby Wax reflects on and recounts her personal experience are both moving and informative and certainly helped me to understand better what it is like to suffer from depression. However, I found the other sections rather annoying in their tone and at times I felt my mind lurching into the world of the untamed mind rather than the tamed. There are other books out there which explain the practice of mindfulness much more clearly, for example Mark Williams 'Finding Peace in a Frantic World'.
