Product description


An outrageously witty and accessible guide for a healthier, happier life (Publisher's description)

A wonderful book full of passion and verve. Ruby Wax gives her unique take on the science and practice of mindfulness. 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)

From the Author

Ruby Wax arrived in Britain in 1977 to pursue an acting career. She says "I really could never find my niche. I was a terrible actress, I couldn't sing, I couldn't do characters, I couldn't do an English accent and I lived in England, so I was narrowing it down". She met French and Saunders at a party and worked alongside them a number of times, on television in Happy Families, at charity events such as Hysteria and notably the sitcom Girls on Top. Ruby played Shelley Dupont, a stereotypically loud American dying for a career in show-business. Not a huge hit, Girls on Top nevertheless gave the trio the chance to find their feet in comedy. Ruby eventually got a chat show after drunkenly interviewing Michael Grade (who was head of Channel 4 at the time) in a tent at the Edinburgh festival. She subsequently made a range of programmes, many revolving around her as an interviewer. Her popularity in terms of comedy came from her interviewing technique: she was always forthright, brash and loud, conforming to the British stereotype of an American. Her physical appearance matched this image, with red hair and blood-red lipstick. In 2002 Ruby Wax wrote her memoir, How Do You Want Me?, which became a bestseller. Her 2010 stand-up show Losing It deals with her experience of bipolar disorder. She founded Black Dog Tribe in 2011 in response to the audience reaction from her theatre show. In September 2013, she graduated from Kellogg College at Oxford University with a master's degree in mindfulness based cognitive therapy. She had previously earned a postgraduate certificate in psychotherapy and counselling from Regents College in London. These days she promotes understanding of the brain and campaigns for greater mental health awareness and destigmatisation.
