"This marvellous book is readable, inspirational and engaging" ~ Stephen Fry

"Its a lifeline...wise, practical and funny, a handbook for everyone alive" ~ Joanna Lumley

"Beautifully fused neurology and spirituality...all other books will become defunct" ~ Russel Brand

"Ruby Wax will make you laugh and show you how to heal and transform your life" ~ Jon Kabbat-Zinn

Ruby Wax is a successful comedian, TV writer and performer of over 25 years. Ruby additionally holds a Master's degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University, and was awarded an OBE in 2015 for her services to mental health. 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. Both books have reached the number one spot on The Sunday Times bestsellers list.

Ruby herself states "We can't stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we're on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, we'll still, fingers crossed, have our minds, which, hopefully, we'll be able use for things like compassion, rather than chasing what's 'better', and if we can do that we're on the yellow brick road to happiness.

I wrote this book with a little help from a monk, who explains how the mind works, and also gives some mindfulness exercises, and a neuroscientist who explains what makes us 'us' in the brain. We answer every question you've ever had about: evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, kids, the future and compassion. How to be Human is extremely funny, true and the only manual you'll need to help you upgrade your mind."

Ruby Wax will be at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff in October and while she is in Cardiff, she has kindly agreed to come in to our centre for a book signing. 

Her latest book, How to be Human, was written in conjunction with Ash Ranpura, a neuroscientist and Gelong Thubten, who teaches Mindfulness internationally. 

We will have copies of the book available for purchase on and before the date of the book signing. It would be really helpful to know if you'd like a copy from us, so please email us at if that's the case and we'll reserve one for you. This will help ensure we have enough copies available and that we don't end up with far more than we will need.
