Matt Haig - Reasons To Stay Alive (2nd Hand Paperback)
From the bestselling author of The Midnight Library and The Humans, Reasons to Stay Alive is a touching and warmly humorous reflection on what it means to lose and regain one’s will to live.
Reasons to Stay Alive is a memoir written by novelist Matt Haig, published on 5 March 2015. It is based on his experiences of living with depression and anxiety disorder, which he suffered from the age of 24. It is Matt Haig's first nonfiction piece and the first time he wrote about his illness publicly.
Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again.
A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth.
'I wrote this book because the oldest clichés remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven't been able to see it . . . Words, just sometimes, really can set you free.'

"Heartbreaking, hopeful, and amazingly written, 'Reasons to Stay Alive' is not only Matt Haig's journey from the lowest point of depression and anxiety to a place of hope, but also has some tips and affirmations about how to help yourself during this time. And I don't have words to express what I felt as I read it. I cried like a baby and when I finished it, I hugged it to myself because I know that it is going to be an important part of my life from now on. Love, love, love it! If you're suffering from depression and anxiety - even if you're not - read this book for perspective." - Google Review.
