Summary "Matt Haig's accessible and life-affirming memoir of his struggle with depression, and how his triumph over the illness taught him to live"-- Provided by publisher
Like nearly one in five people, Haig suffers from depression. Here he explains how, minute by minute and day by day, he overcame the disease with the help of reading, writing, and the love of his parents and his girlfriend, and eventually learned to appreciate life all the more for it. Both inspiring to those who feel daunted by depression and illuminating to those who are mystified by it, Haig's humor and encouragement never let us lose sight of hope
