*FROM THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF FRAZZLED*A three way encounter between a Monk, a neuroscientist and Ruby Wax sounds like the set up for a joke. Instead it’s produced one of the most fascinating, intriguing and informative books about minds and bodies and brains and mindfulness I’ve ever encountered.
