Part memoir, part self-help(ish) book, part something else entirely, Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive seeks to remove the stigma society places on depression, by revealing the author’s own struggles with the disease, as well as peppering the book with facts and statistics on depression and suicide. Super personal and very raw, I see this as a sort of companion to Notes on a Nervous Planet, which is structured in a very similar manner. Warning: this one is not nearly as light-hearted, but equally helpful. ( )

an uplifting, insightful, short read that made me feel hopeful and helped me regain control a little. it is also very, very similar to the humans, (the two of them essentially being the fiction / non-fiction versions of the same story) which i ultimately liked better. ( )

I bought this because I follow the author on Twitter and his words are always so inspiring to me. This is a frank, honest, sometimes funny, often inspirational account of dealing with depression and anxiety, and I really needed it right now. If you are a sufferer or care for someone who does, you will find yourself underlining passages and flagging pages to return to later. ( )

Compassionate, kind and heartfelt.

I was really nervous about reading this, I get a bit anxious about talking and thinking myself back into the dark days. I shouldn't have worried Matt Haig handled this so well. I found myself nodding along to so much of this and learning lots about myself - connecting dots that before now I hadn't considered part of the picture.

Have a feeling that I'll need to buy a few of these as I know this is one I'll want to pass on as soon as people mention depression or anxiety. ( )
