'This book is about how to be human. Why we haven’t figured this out by now, I do not know. We should be having the time of our lives at this point in history. With technology so smart, at a click of a finger you can order a husband at two in the morning, have food delivered straight into your mouth and shop while you sleep – but still we’re not happy.
The book tells you why and what we can do about it. Now is the time to upgrade our minds as much as we’ve upgraded our iPhones.
I wrote this book with a little help from a monk, who explains how the mind works and a neuroscientist, who explains what makes us ‘us’ in the brain.' – Ruby Wax
