The fact the author doesn’t realise this, and would shame anyone who reacted this way, made me instantly stop reading. I'm conscious that the problem I had with this section of the book was that I was reading for leisure rather than as a deliberate decision to practice the exercises. This book, I feel, is more written in a diary form, like Ruby Wax has just jotted down a lot of thoughts, feelings and situations and slapped a cover on it. Wax has developed her own 6-week mindfulness course, which is shorter than most approaches (8 weeks seems to be the standard). OCD impacts on the lives of the whole family, especially those that love and care for people with OCD.

An insightful and wickedly funny look at mindfulness, but mostly the anecdotal look at the author's experiences with depresion. The number one bestseller, with over 150,000 copies sold, which kick-started a mindfulness revolution** 'Ruby Wax has written a guide to mindfulness that's as hilarious as it is useful' Arianna Huffington 'We are all frazzled, all of us. And this 'baring all' is very brave and admirable, particularly the chapter entitled 'A Depressing Interlude'. I very much liked Ruby Wax's first book "Sane New World: Taming The Mind" which was a very interesting read insightful and funny but this tried to be all things to all women/men as a guide to mindfulness and so included chapters for teenagers and children etc, but for me it felt very much like a retread of her first book with some additional information specific to mindfulness and specific about her own experiences with mental illness which although interesting was not why I bought the book.

It gives a strong impression that you can do it without needing to significantly change your current activities, which is appealing and certainly should make it an option worthy of consideration for those who are concerned that they might not commit to a more formal course.Wax was everywhere on telly when I was a teenager and I personally wasn't into her manic approach to comedy. I've read through it and am aiming to have a go at it, but can't really report on whether it's a good'un. This book, as well as being mostly a fun read (when it's not being raw and real about the authors more troubling experiences) is filled with interesting information about the brain and mind. What I enjoyed about Ruby's introduction was her sheer honesty - depression is real, mindfulness will not solve all your problems. Ths author, Ruby Wax, was helpful for not letting the reader get sidetracked and lost in the science.
