Overview

Comfort is an appealing idea in this day and age. We could all use a little advice, an inspirational story, or even a playlist recommendation to get us through tough times. In The Comfort Book, Matt Haig provides exactly that.

As an author of fiction, non-fiction, and children's books, Haig often writes about his own battles with depression and anxiety. The author wrote much of the wisdom in this book as notes to his future self – a liferaft to help him through tough times.

From personal memories to survival stories to inspirational quotes from the Stoics, Haig uses simple metaphors and anecdotes to help you feel better and keep going. Drawing on his own experiences with mental health, Haig includes many of the big insights that helped him get to the other side.

"It is a strange paradox, that many of the clearest, most comforting life lessons are learned while we are at our lowest."
