Notes on a Nervous Planet is out on 5th July in the UK.

Some very lovely people have been saying rather nice things about it too:

“Beautiful, honest and wise” FEARNE COTTON

“A primer for how to live in the present moment. This book will find grateful readers everywhere” NIGELLA LAWSON

“Is the modern world doing our heads in? Matt Haig shares our fears and gives answers to the question from many different angles. An enthralling book” JO BRAND

“Warm and wise. If the modern world is making you anxious, this is the perfect book for you” CLAUDIA HAMMOND, PRESENTER OF BBC RADIO 4’S ALL IN THE MIND

“Examines how the world infiltrates our minds, and how to cope with its manifold distractions” ANITA SETHI Inews

Here’s the blurb from the back cover:

The world is messing with our minds.

Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. And we are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.

– How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad?
– How do we stay human in a technological world?
– How do we feel happy when we are encouraged to be anxious?

After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, these questions became urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig. And he began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him. Notes on a Nervous Planet is a personal and vital look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the twenty-first century.

You can pre-order it from Waterstones, or Foyles, or Amazon or from any good bookstore!
