WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FEEL TRULY ALIVE?

At the age of 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 clichés 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."

Brutally Honest, Realistic View of Depression (with a large side of hope)

I love Matt Haig. This is my first of his, but will certainly not be my last. In this sort of autobiographical approach to offering hope for depressives, Haig shares a refreshing viewpoint direct from the source. The advice and tips woven into this retelling are wonderful; my book is scattered with a plethora of worthy highlights. Down to earth, honest, inspiring perspective helped me to find hope in acceptance and autonomy for my choices along the way. Give this one a read!

Perfect

This book changed my outlook on life. It helped me understand someone I love dearly so much better and to understand my own feelings better. Thank you for this book.

Made it Halfway...

I don’t want to be mean and am sure the author is a lovely person. The book was just so boring and repetitive, though. There doesn’t seem to be anything new here that hasn’t been said many times before. I do not think it provides any useful insight into the experience of depression nor any inspirational commentary. (Maybe it does at the very end, but I just couldn’t make myself stick with it.)
