How to Be Human

The Manual




A practical and inspiring book by the Number One Sunday Times bestselling author of A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled

With a little help from a monk, and a neuroscientist, Ruby Wax answers 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 as much as you've upgraded your iPhone.
