Notes on a Nervous Planet Reviews
His best book yet! The perfect antidote to our messy world! I love all Matt Haig’s books and this was still even better than I had anticipated! Just buy it, read it, talk about and love it! This world is a better place with this book in it .
notes on a nervous planet was one of my most anticipated releases of 2018. having said that, i actually didn’t know what it was going to be about. obviously, by the title, i knew it would focus more on anxiety, but that was pretty much it. overall, while notes on a nervous planet was a good non-fiction book on mental health, i still prefer reasons to stay alive.
before anything else, it’s important to note that this book really triggered my anxiety. i’m very wary when entering a book that has eve ...more
‘Kindness spring-cleans the soul.’
Reading ‘Notes on a Nervous Planet’ is like being given a new pair of spectacles. It makes everything clearer.
Matt Haig writes with humility, wisdom, clarity, honesty, humour and kindness about his own mental illness and efforts to improve his mental health. In doing so he is a source of great help to others. I read this book quickly - it will stay with me for a very long time.
Yet another remarkable book from Matt.
Matt Haig did it again.
Everyone who knows me is aware that I read A LOT of fantasy, a bit of sci-fi, so few contemporary, and I rarely read non-fiction. I read to escape but non-fiction books are just too close to reality for my liking. Despite that, I devour Matt Haig's non-fiction books. Notes from a Nervous Planet is a sort of follow up to Reasons To Stay Alive—a book that means so much to me.
Reasons to Stay Alive made me love Matt Haig so much. It is the second non-fiction book I honestly ...more
A truly timely and important book that everyone living on this nervous planet should read. Matt's honest and personal experiences shine through on every page and his writing is like a cup of tea and a warm blanket making you feel that no matter how crazy the world can get everything is going to be ok. I loved this book and have no hesitation recommending it to absolutely everyone, no one will finish this book without learning at least one important lesson or taking away one piece of advice that ...more
Matt Haig is bloody wonderful. He just gets it.
I feel like I could write a Twitter bot that would generate this entire book. If you're the type of person who needs someone to tell you "It will be okay" a thousand different ways, then this is the book for you. I, like Matt Haig, also suffer from anxiety. But being told "it will be okay" only adds to my anxiety. I was hoping for a tool or an escape, but did not find it here. I'm glad Mr. Haig has found a profitable way to deal with his anxiety, by selling out his mantras.
I wanted so badly to love this book, not just because it's Matt Haig, but also because I like the idea of the topic, but sadly it wasn't entirely a book for me.
