Wow - not sure where the good reviews are coming from?!
I've read a lot of self help books and lasted to chapter 5 before deciding it was a form of procrastination to keep going!

Really is not a lot of content to take away and use......I'll give credit to the only one I took ....

Need to get something done, with no distractions? Take your laptop to a coffee shop of similar, but NO charger .... you then hvae however long/much battery charge your laptop has to complete ...... not bad, otherwise, returned this book!

The book starts talking about how it's packed with usable. Info for controlling situations via nlp, persuasion, mindset etc and the reviews back this up.... Have I missed something?!

Ive researches a little On nlp but a lot. Around mindset and alike and this touches lightly on a bit of everything without really giving much away?

'when entering a room stand tall and occupy as much space as possible' was the tip on gaining respect when entering a room?! Obvious?!

Listened to the whole book as short but personnally didn't take anything new away and felt it never got going or delivered on the open day promise of supplying what's needed

With a little help from a monk (who tells us how our mind works) and a neuroscientist (who tells us how our brain works), Ruby Wax answers every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion. Filled with witty anecdotes from Ruby's own life, and backed up by smart science and practical mindfulness exercises, How to be Human is the only manual you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you've upgraded your iPhone.

I've read a few books on mindfulness, neuroscience and studied a year long course on the latter, so thought I'd get Ruby's take on it as the rating were good!

I couldn't last more than an hour - yes she's got her 'way' of explaining and talking about things, but man my mind was the opposite to being mindful, it was been washed and crunched all over the place by her inane references and chit chat - it may well have got better but to me this subject is about calming and slowing down, being more focussed and I was far from able to with this book!

Every new project (or job, or hobby, or company) starts out exciting and fun. Then it gets harder and less fun, until it hits a low point: really hard, and not much fun at all. And then you find yourself asking if the goal is even worth the hassle. Maybe you're in a Dip: a temporary setback that you will overcome if you keep pushing. But maybe it's really a Cul-de-Sac, which will never get better, no matter how hard you try.

Read past books of his and enjoyed, but got 2 hours in and ditched it - yes his voice and narration is one paced, but so far the message is "create something that people will want to watch/visit again" .... aye I get that!
