It's extremely readable, and Wax includes plenty of easily-digestible but apparently thorough information about how the brain works and what mindfulness can do about it. Most courses/books made the subject so soft and mushy that I felt I am on the path to becoming a monk. I don’t think that discussion about psychopharmacological drugs belongs in a book about mindfulness. The only thing I would say is that it came off a bit tactless when it talked about certain other belived, but I don't think it's overly malicious and goes hand in hand with Ruby wax's brand of humour.

Really good explanation of mindfulness, meditation and the brain with a 6 week course in mindfulness to boot. Following up though, I've gone back to the Williams (which I'm finding much easier this time, now I've got some context for it) and the situations he describes are much more in line with my own experience. 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. Drawing on her own personal experiences, it is a combination of anecdotes, simple psychology and some practical exercises to help bring mindfulness to life. for anyone new to Mindfulness this book is a good introduction and a great read that can be dipped in and out of as and when needed.She also displays her vulnerability in a very open and honest manner, both in her adolescent years and into adult life. Wax was everywhere on telly when I was a teenager and I personally wasn't into her manic approach to comedy. I have yet to try the six week course, to see if there are real positive changes to be made, but aim to start and report back (to you dear brain) in six weeks time. Homeopathy is clearly bollocks, ditto for Reiki, and you can shove your crystals where the sun don't shine.

I've seen that other readers who don't have children have skipped these parts, but actually I found them very interesting because while the exercises there don't have any practical application to my life, they describe how the brain develops through the various phases of childhood.Also for me being a beginner to mindfulness I think I need someone talking me through the exercises in audio format for the mindfulness exercises to work as there is no way I could retain all the instructions in my head.

The book includes numerous anecdotes from her personal life and a large sprinkle of sarcasm and hyperbole, but it is grounded in the science of mindfulness.
