Ruby Wax

speaks with Matt Haig on being Frazzled

Arriving in Britain from the United States in 1977, Ruby Wax began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company. She went on to write and perform in her own hugely popular television programmes, and was Script Editor on all series of Absolutely Fabulous. Since then, Ruby has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness about mental health issues, including speaking at Downing Street to raise money for neuroscience research. In 2013, she obtained a Masters Degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University to increase her understanding of the brain and used this knowledge as the basis for Sane New World: Taming the Mind, which became a Sunday Times number one bestseller. Her most recent book is A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled and in January 2018 she is releasing How to Be Human: The Manual.
