A bestselling author, Matt Haig’s work includes fiction, children’s writing, screenplays and non-fiction. Born in Sheffield, he began his career writing adult fiction. After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, the question of How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad? And– How do we stay human in a technological world? became urgent matters of life and death for Matt Haig, so he began to look for the link between what he felt and the world around him. The poignant and natural follow up to Matt’s, Reasons To Stay Alive, which sat in the bestseller list for over 46 weeks, Notes on a Nervous Planet is a personal and vital look at how to feel happy, human and whole in the twenty-first century.
