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 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."

We are the tinMatt 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 usThoughtful, honest and incredibly insightfulMatt Haig is an incredible authorBrilliant and salutary . . . should be on prescriptionFor 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 feel a bit less alone, a bit less scared, a bit less guilty and anxious and burdenedThe amount of passages I've underlined is a real testament to his skills as a writerA life-affirming and quietly joyful readGives a profound, sensitive and enlightening insight into depression. I can't recommend it enough for everyoneHere was someone speaking about mental health in a way I'd never heard before. It saved my life
