Description

If you've found that you're stuck at a dead end when it comes to figuring yourself out and how to deal with mental health issues, I would recommend reading this book.

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.

Probabilmente dipende dalla personalità dell'Autrice, e dalla sua vena comica lontana dai miei gusti - purtroppo il libro è stato scritto con l'idea, temo, di procurare al lettore anche del divertimento. I’ve never been a massive fan of Ruby Wax but decided to give this book a go after seeing it recommended somewhere. I know I would have been practicing mindfulness for many years now had I laid my hands on this book earlier. A very interesting book but I think I made a mistake listening to the audio book rather than having a real copy. 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.

It's probably also a good choice if you want to understand something of what it's like to experience depression or if you're struggling to deal with a child or teenager's difficult behaviour. The fact the author doesn’t realise this, and would shame anyone who reacted this way, made me instantly stop reading.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.

Also that a good 25% of the book deals with the use of mindfulness in raising children which is more than a little outside my area of interest, unfortunately. I admit that at this time I haven't gone through the mindfulness excersises in the book, or the section on parenting and teenagers, but I may go back and update the review when I do. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Sometimes we’re too focused on our little problems and we don’t understand what’s really important: pay attention. She then says these responses are built into us to make us ‘man up’ when in danger (a toxic expression, if ever there was one) and goes on to describe fight as using your energy to ‘kick ass’, flight to ‘get the hell out of there’, and (this is what made me angry) said, ‘or if you’re a loser, freeze like a rabbit in the headlights’.She is the author of books Sane New World and A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled , and has toured all over the world with the accompanying one-woman shows. Really good explanation of mindfulness, meditation and the brain with a 6 week course in mindfulness to boot. I did get the feeling as I read through the book though, that perhaps my problems weren't entirely relevant. Understanding the 'why' is a clear positive, but I would like to be able to effect some changes to improve the 'why not' ability. Letti un paio di libri introduttivi, però, devo ammettere di aver problemi a vedere la separazione tra "notare" e "pensare", o meglio, a capire cosa si intenda per "osservare i propri pensieri" e cose del genere.
