Where does a moderately popular internet star who never leaves her house look for potential suitors? Online. Tinder, Bumble, Match.com, OkCupid - I tried them all. My 31-year-old self clicked and swiped her little heart out, leading to more dates than I could count, and more disappointment than I was prepared for. Maybe you can relate. Maybe you know all too well the perils of modern dating.

Brittany is very passionate over this story. But it's not as interesting as she portrays it to be. She's not a likeable protagonist, I sense an underlying tone of righteousness the way she expresses how she was a virgin until the age of 32. She often used language such as "I'm not like those other girls" and "I made sure my shorts weren't too slutty". Bragging how she impatiently waited for him to text her as she had to follow the "dating rules". It was as if she wrote the book ten years ago. Also she claimed she married him as "Our relationship had to endure what most people would never have to go through". What a presumptuous and pretentious line! She has no idea what the average person has to go through.

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.
