Review:

Maybe the most important book I've read this year -- SIMON MAYO A life-saving book -- AMANDA CRAIG Warm and engaging, and shot through with humour . . . a valuable contribution to the conversation * * SUNDAY TIMES * * Brings a difficult and sensitive subject out of the darkness and into the light -- MICHAEL PALIN Full of wisdoms and warmth -- NATHAN FILER A tender, candid, inspiring book about depression * * SUNDAY EXPRESS * * Matt Haig is astounding -- STEPHEN FRY Reasons to Stay Alive is wonderful. I read it in one sitting. Touching, funny, thought-provoking, with a huge heart. It should be read by anyone who has suffered, or known someone who has suffered (i.e.. everyone) -- S J WATSON Fascinating and beautifully written -- IAN RANKIN Matt Haig uses words like a tin-opener. We are the tin -- JEANETTE WINTERSON Matt Haig is a marvellous writer: limpid; tender; passionate. In this memoir (and it's short, barely 200 pages long), he manages to articulate, both the bleakness of depression and the means of dealing with it, little by little, day by day, without ever sounding maudlin, or self-indulgent, or preachy. For everyone who has ever felt the snap of the black dog's teeth, this book is wise, funny, affirming and redemptive. Sometimes depression can be like falling into a wordless pit. Matt Haig finds the words. And he says them for all of us -- JOANNE HARRIS Thoughtful, honest and incredibly insightful -- JENNY COLGAN Brilliant and salutary . . . should be on prescription -- REV. RICHARD COLES For anyone who has faced the black dog, or felt despair, this marvellous book is a real comfort, dealing sympathetically with depression, written with candour and from first-hand experience. I think it is a small masterpiece. It might even save lives -- JOANNA LUMLEY A really great read, and essential to our collective well-being -- JO BRAND Quite simply brilliant * * BOOKMUNCH * * A heart-breaking account of a young man experiencing debilitating depression but comes with a surprising light touch * * SUNDAY MAIL * * I feel like someone else in the world understands me now. I feel a bit less alone, a bit less scared, a bit less guilty and anxious and burdened * * LITTLE WHITE LIBRARY * * The amount of passages I've underlined is a real testament to his skills as a writer * * THE WHITE JOURNAL * * A life-affirming and quietly joyful read * * CONNAUGHT TELEGRAPH * *
