Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What makes us tick? 23 août 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The first half of the book is what I expected from Ruby, hilarious writing while explaining the workings of the brain and body in terms I could understand. The second half is somewhat darker and more serious, explaining in deeper detail. I feel I understand what drives me much better. Well done Ruby.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Succinct but comprehensive advice on the practice of mindfulness for mental health 13 juin 2013
Par José Zapata - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I purchased this book because I saw a TV interview with the author and she said "It is a manual to deal with the negative voices inside your head" or something along those lines.
I am currently going through a stressful peroiod, so I relate to "voices" in my head: anxiety, negativity, fear of failure and a sense of not being good enough. Therefore the idea of a manual to deal with these voices appealed to me.

In this sense, Ruby Wax delivers.
The book is divided into parts, and each part provides background information to the punchline of the book, which is :practice mindfulness and you'll live a longer and happier life. Throughout the book there are also tidbits of Ruby's personal story, which relate to the point she is trying to make. I find these tidbits funny, but also an excellent way to relate the advise Ruby gives to my personal feelings.

Part one: It describes negative feelings and emotions that affect normal people like us. Modern life, with its fast pace and information overload, tries us to our very limit and we are ill equipped to face it with our brains that have evolved from hunting, gathering, roaming plains and singing songs. I find the humor in this section too dark on one or two instances. But maybe is because I am reading it under stress.

Part two: It describes problems that affect mentally ill people. The brain is incredibly complex but is after all an organ, just like the liver, the heart or kidneys, and when it faces physiological problems it can cause serious disturbance in our lives. This part serves two purposes: to illustrate how an injured/ill brain can make people behave in bizarre and unexpected ways and to propose that depression fits into this category, that people that suffer depression are not faking it or being whiny and should not be treated as social outcasts that ought to just harden up.

Part three: This is where it gets succinct and comprehensive. This part describes the brain in detail, its parts, processes, inner workings and interconnections. I felt as if I was looking under the hood of a car and the author was telling me what is the carburetor and what does it do, how do spark plugs fire up to create combustion inside the engine pistons, what is the role of the coolant in keeping the engine healthy,etc etc etc. A great read on its own.

Part four: The punchline of the book, the practice of mindfulness. The author introduces the concept of mindfulness and how it helps to calm a brain in overdrive. This part provides examples and exercises that the reader can practice to get started. With the information provided in previous chapters, the reader can see how mindfulness calms the mind and pay attention to how the body behaves when practicing exercises. I find this is useful information and I will come back to reread it multiple times, and I would like to know more.

Part Five: Alternative techniques. If mindfulness is not your cup of tea, the author shows similar techniques that have arisen from other studies that also help to calm the mind. The message of this part is that we are all different and we just need to find the technique that does the job for us.

Also I dint know the author or her previous show business life, but she is quite funny throughout the book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Four and a half stars if I could... 10 juin 2013
Par Cat.Bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It took me a little while to be won over by this book, while I was expecting it to have a conversational tone I wasn't expecting Ruby Wax to come across as quite so chatty and, well, actually loony! Having said that, I now think that this is one of the strengths of the book. It's like having a long conversation with your favourite crazy aunt and coming away with a new and profound perspective on how to be.

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 excellent introduction to why contemporary neuroscience opens a door to freedom from destructive patterns for each of us 7 juillet 2013
Par anna yeatman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a very good book where Ruby Wax's own struggle with a difficult childhood history, intergenerational trauma and a pattern of terrible episodic depression in adulthood led her to do a masters degree in contemporary neuroscience. She learnt two fabulously important lessons: 1. our brains are plastic -- and our nervous system is potentially open to all possibilities of new learning; 2. but we can tap these only if we also learn to inhibit old destructive reactive patterns of behaviour by opening up a space between our tendency to work to pattern and our potential for doing something new. Opening up this space can come with whatever helps us to inhibit our tendency to revert to the old reactive pattern especially under stress. Meditation is one tried and true practice which Ruby Wax has used. She makes all this accessible and clear. It is a book offered with whole heart and mind and generosity of spirit--as well as her familiar bitter-sweet comedic style. Good on you Ruby!!!!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Sane New World 7 décembre 2013
Par Damaskcat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Ruby Wax – as might be expected – is an amusing writer. In this interesting guide book to the mind she intersperses her own experiences – frequently bad – with the knowledge she gained from going to university and gaining a Masters degree in mindfulness based cognitive behaviour therapy. Honesty and clarity make this in an excellent little book for anyone who wants to understand their own moods and feelings and to deal with and control them in a way which will help them live a more productive and saner life.

If you want to read a book which gives you the theory of neuroscience in accessible language and personal experience which helps to bring the theory to life then this is the book for you. There are two sections on self-help remedies – one section describes mindfulness techniques and the other describes alternative ways of dealing with stress, depression and other emotional problems.

The book is written in practical down to earth everyday language with plenty of humorous comments and asides. The author is not slow to laugh at her own thoughts and feelings either. The only thing which this book lacks is a bibliography/reading list but apart from that it is an excellent guide to the mind and the ways in which it can malfunction in everyday life.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Like chatting with an old friend 28 décembre 2013
Par Craig - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
What I took away from this book was to be able to see that our thoughts and emotions are separate from who we are, and are mostly a product do our own doing. Steering their influence on our perception, and gaining control of our response is key to shaping our own peace and happiness. Practicing mindfulness is an excellent vehicle to get you going in that direction.
Ruby breaks it down and lays it out without all the technical stuffiness you'd expect from this sort of book. It's an easy read with a good dose of humor thrown in.
