The world is messing with our minds.

Rates of stress and anxiety are rising. A fast, nervous planet is creating fast and nervous lives. We are more connected, yet feel more alone. We are encouraged to worry about everything from world politics to our body mass index.

  • How can we stay sane on a planet that makes us mad?
  • How do we stay human in a technological world?

After experiencing years of anxiety and panic attacks, these questions 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.

Join the author for an evening of positive and insightful discussion about the modern world, offering a closer look at the challenges posed by our ever-changing technological landscape and his advice on how best to navigate it.
