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

As candid as it is touching, this is a book about depression that's refreshingly uplifting, focusing on making the most of your time on earth - even if some days feel worse than others. Keep a pencil at hand: There'll be countless passages you'll want to bookmark and pass on to friends -- RUBY WAX

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

A bracing manifesto on overcoming depression and suicidal thoughts ― * IRISH INDEPENDENT *

Quite simply brilliant ― * BOOKMUNCH *

Thoroughly uplifting and joyous ― * Daily Express *

A heart-breaking account of a young man experiencing debilitating depression but comes with a surprising light touch ― * SUNDAY MAIL *

A book that can help us gain empathy for the struggles others may be having, and it can encourage those in need to get support if they are reluctant to do so ― * Medium *

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 *

Gives a profound, sensitive and enlightening insight into depression. I can't recommend it enough for everyone -- RUTH JONES

Here was someone speaking about mental health in a way I'd never heard before. It saved my life -- KATIE THISTLETON
