    Inhaltsangabe

    What Does it mean to feel truly alive? Aged 24, 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 cliches 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."

    Does it help...?

    For somebody in depression it depresses very much hearing how great this guy is, and that you are obviously a much harder case than this guy with his extraordinary life...

    Offen, ehrlich, rettend

    Im Guardian hat jemand geschrieben, dass dieses Buch bestimmt schon tausende Leben gerettet hat - und das glaube ich auch. Matt Haig erzählt von seiner Krankheit so, dass man wohl so nah wie für einen Außenstehenden möglich nachvollziehen kann, was passiert. Und als Betroffene(r) vertraut man ihm, weil er so ehrlich ist. Ich bin für dieses Buch sehr dankbar!

    Loved it!

    Loved every second of it! A must-read for everyone who wants to learn about depression, has depression, is not sure if they have depression or know someone with depression. It is brutally honest and funny and relateable and it lifts you up. My black dog and I say thank you for this book Matt Haig! If I were rich, I'd buy it for everyone I know!

    Fantastic, thank you so much

    Dear Matt, in the first instance I was aghast at the your subject, I wasn’t expecting that type of illness. Did I really want to carry on listening? But I did (it was my second book written by you) and then I couldn’t put it down. You’re so good at picturing the true depth of feelings I felt stunned and grabbed by your style, which embraces simply telling the truth in calm detail and that odd burst of delicious humour (which came thru loads in The Humans, a Book I adore) and wierdly enough, some understated cliffhangers. Not only did I have a jolly entertaining listen, but now I understand my family and myself a whole load more. Thank you so much. I’m really glad you stayed alive. Xx

    Disappointing

    I am a bit disappointed. It is such an important topic but the book wasn't up for the challenge.

    Thank you, Matt Haig!

    First of all, I like that it's actually the author himself who reads "Reasons to stay alive". That makes his book even more authentic and real. Luckily, I've never suffered depression or anxiety myself, but this book has helped me to understand what that can be like. It's also unexpectedly amusing (peanutbutter sandwiches!) while still being dedicated to this challenging topic. And in case you know "The Humans", you are very likely to smile when you listen to the acknowledgements at the end of this story. Thank you, Matt Haig!

    Sincere and effective!

    I believe the sincere, unpretentious way the author describes his experience on depression and anxiety is extremely effective. Why? He does not try to sell a recipe or “cure for depression” or anxiety. He stresses that everyone has or had their own journey. He does not make people feel they don’t fit in. On the contrary, it raises awareness and at the same times gives hope. I enjoyed a lot the audio book narrated by Matt. PS: particularly when he spoke about Schopenhauer:)

    Wonderful

    The Book made me feel better about myself and my thoughts. Now I know a lot more about depression and how other people solve their problems.
    Thanks
