We know the stars, and have tamed most species that have crossed our paths; we've roamed the world over and travelled to Space; we've mastered industrialisation then created technology that our grandparents couldn't have dreamt of. So, what's next? Ruby Wax builds on her exploration on forgiveness to demonstrate that the next great barrier to progress is compassion. And Now for the Good News teaches us essential tools for making the most out of the relationships in our loves and protect our hearts and mind amidst the madness of hashtags and 24-hour news cycles. Introducing a new mindfulness practice (tuning into the body), Wax creates a call to arms to living more intuitive lives. Drawing on how education, businesses, technology can use kindness to reform - and better - themselves as well as the purpose of kindness, this book will investigate why greater compassion is our one-way ticket to a better future.

This is a good read by my friend Ruby Wax and it's actually positive about the future, which I must say isn't something that often occurs to me about the future. Also, it's funny which I think is very important. And finally, Ruby has neither paid me, blackmailed me or threatened me to make me say this * Jo Brand on Instagram *
