Sane New World – A User’s Guide to the Normal – Crazy Mind by Ruby Wax was not what I was expecting at all! Ruby is hilarious, which made this a very easy read. Ruby shared many insights about clinical depression, which was about half of the book – sounds like a lot, but it was necessary to get her point across. She flowed into discussing the different parts of the brain, and how different chemicals react and affect us. She then shared about the practice of mindfulness, and shared many tips and exercises in how to improve our own mindfulness, which in turn, rewires our brains. This is a great book I would recommend to anyone. A special thanks to my friend Mike Shelah of Mike Shelah Consulting, who recommended it!
