    I'm not really going to review this properly I bought it and read it just for me really. There's nothing much I can say that I haven't said before about this author's writing and sometimes you just want to read a book to kick start your soul again. Suffice to say that as ever after...

    This book gave me so much to contemplate! ...

    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...

    I had heard this book was a sort of follow on from Reasons To Stay Alive. I read Reasons To Stay Alive while I was on holiday in January. And loved it read it in 2 or 3 days and ended up having to start it again as I hadn't thought I would finish it so quickly. Clearly it took me a...

    I read Matt Haig?s previous book ?Reasons To Stay Alive ? last year and absolutely loved it.It dealt with Matt?s personal battle with anxiety and depression. It was so honest you couldn?t help but be affected by the level of suffering he went through. His follow up book ?...

    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 . ...

    This is a world of nerves. Of nervousness (as the title rightly suggests), of anxiety and of excess. Everything is in excess and we do not know when to stop or how to control our lives. We are constantly on the edge and losing the very essence of being human. Our lives are spiraling ou...

    Amazing!!! ...

    ?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 impr...

    4 stars - It was great. I loved it. A thought provoking look at how rapidly our society has changed over the last 20 years with the advent of modern technological advances. I found a multitude of quotable passages and interesting tidbits. I?m a fan of Haig?s writing, be it fict...

    Matt Haig has done it again: written a highly thought-provoking book which has made me want to better myself and enrich my life. I am so glad that I was able to meet him last week and tell him how much his books mean to me because this book perfectly encapsulates why his work is so...

    The world is a nervous system. Everything is connected and it's difficult to switch off, even for your own sake. Notes on a Nervous Planet makes you stop, think, consider your own interactions with the world around you and how it seeps into your life. Most of all it makes you hope it's...

    The only thing I don't like about this book is that it wasn't around when I was a teenager. Firstly, I just want to say that this book is physically stunning. Beneath the dust jacket, the hardcover is all the colours of the rainbow and it's lovely. I also think the size is great, i...

    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 o...

    Reasons looked inward, Notes looks back out again. Honest and applicable life lessons from one of my favourite contemporary writers and thinkers. I'd call Matt Haig 'a thinker'. As well as enjoying almost every adult and children's novel he's brought out, I can recognise my own life...

    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...

    Jeg kunne virkelig godt lide Reasons to stay alive og denne bog er i princippet en naturlig opfølgning. Men ... måske er den bare ikke rigtig for mig. Den har et stort fokus på, hvad internet og 'connectivity' gør ved os som mennesker, at ro, natur, kærlighed og dyr er godt for os...

    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-ficti...

    Devoured this in a single day. Deliciously yummy. Another Haig triumph. ...

    Notes on a Nervous Planet is Matt Haig's somewhat sequel to Reasons To Stay Alive, in which he looks at the pace and panic of today's world and considers it through the lens of his own mental health issues, particularly anxiety. The style is very similar to the earlier book: short chap...

    I hardly ever dnf a book. Now trust me when I say I know that this book is just like Haig's others; ones that I do like, The Humans is actually one of my all-time favourites. I stopped a little over 200 pages in and I realised he would be repeating the same messages over and over again...

    Matt Haig is bloody wonderful. He just gets it. ...

    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. ...

    It wasn't surprising for me that I would like this book, as I love Matt Haig's writing in general. However, I had one problem that may be an issue for other people, too. There were some paragraphs/chapters that could easily trigger panic attacks, and I think when writing about mental ...

    Like Matt Haig?s previous book ?How to Stay Alive?, ?Notes on a Nervous Planet? is recommended reading for?well, everyone. Our attention is slowly and surely being broken down into short segments and one of the largest culprits is the internet. The flow of free information...

    "We have handed over our instincts to the hands of a clock. Increasingly, we serve time rather than time serving us." "When normality becomes madness, the only way to find sanity is by daring to be different. Or daring to be the you that exists beyond all the physical clutter and mi...

    Haig provides an authentic first person narrative of how the world we live in is contributing to people feeling anxious and depressed. The development of social media and people?s unfortunate need to present themselves as something which is at a disconnect from themselves, comparing ...

    ?Don?t beat yourself up for being a mess. It?s fine. The universe is a mess. Galaxies are drifting all over the place. You?re just in tune with the cosmos.? Thank you for the medicine, Matt Haig! ...

    The only thing I don't like about this book is that it wasn't around when I was a teenager. Firstly, I just want to say that this book is physically stunning. Beneath the dust jacket, the hardcover is all the colours of the rainbow and it's lovely. I also think the size is great, i...

    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 o...

    Reasons looked inward, Notes looks back out again. Honest and applicable life lessons from one of my favourite contemporary writers and thinkers. I'd call Matt Haig 'a thinker'. As well as enjoying almost every adult and children's novel he's brought out, I can recognise my own life...

    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...

    Jeg kunne virkelig godt lide Reasons to stay alive og denne bog er i princippet en naturlig opfølgning. Men ... måske er den bare ikke rigtig for mig. Den har et stort fokus på, hvad internet og 'connectivity' gør ved os som mennesker, at ro, natur, kærlighed og dyr er godt for os...

    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-ficti...

    Devoured this in a single day. Deliciously yummy. Another Haig triumph. ...

    Notes on a Nervous Planet is Matt Haig's somewhat sequel to Reasons To Stay Alive, in which he looks at the pace and panic of today's world and considers it through the lens of his own mental health issues, particularly anxiety. The style is very similar to the earlier book: short chap...

    I hardly ever dnf a book. Now trust me when I say I know that this book is just like Haig's others; ones that I do like, The Humans is actually one of my all-time favourites. I stopped a little over 200 pages in and I realised he would be repeating the same messages over and over again...

    Matt Haig is bloody wonderful. He just gets it. ...

    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. ...

    It wasn't surprising for me that I would like this book, as I love Matt Haig's writing in general. However, I had one problem that may be an issue for other people, too. There were some paragraphs/chapters that could easily trigger panic attacks, and I think when writing about mental ...

    Like Matt Haig?s previous book ?How to Stay Alive?, ?Notes on a Nervous Planet? is recommended reading for?well, everyone. Our attention is slowly and surely being broken down into short segments and one of the largest culprits is the internet. The flow of free information...

    "We have handed over our instincts to the hands of a clock. Increasingly, we serve time rather than time serving us." "When normality becomes madness, the only way to find sanity is by daring to be different. Or daring to be the you that exists beyond all the physical clutter and mi...

    Haig provides an authentic first person narrative of how the world we live in is contributing to people feeling anxious and depressed. The development of social media and people?s unfortunate need to present themselves as something which is at a disconnect from themselves, comparing ...

    I'm not really going to review this properly I bought it and read it just for me really. There's nothing much I can say that I haven't said before about this author's writing and sometimes you just want to read a book to kick start your soul again. Suffice to say that as ever after...

    This book gave me so much to contemplate! ...

    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...

    I had heard this book was a sort of follow on from Reasons To Stay Alive. I read Reasons To Stay Alive while I was on holiday in January. And loved it read it in 2 or 3 days and ended up having to start it again as I hadn't thought I would finish it so quickly. Clearly it took me a...

    I read Matt Haig?s previous book ?Reasons To Stay Alive ? last year and absolutely loved it.It dealt with Matt?s personal battle with anxiety and depression. It was so honest you couldn?t help but be affected by the level of suffering he went through. His follow up book ?...

    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 . ...

    This is a world of nerves. Of nervousness (as the title rightly suggests), of anxiety and of excess. Everything is in excess and we do not know when to stop or how to control our lives. We are constantly on the edge and losing the very essence of being human. Our lives are spiraling ou...

    4 stars - It was great. I loved it. A thought provoking look at how rapidly our society has changed over the last 20 years with the advent of modern technological advances. I found a multitude of quotable passages and interesting tidbits. I?m a fan of Haig?s writing, be it fict...

    I hardly ever dnf a book. Now trust me when I say I know that this book is just like Haig's others; ones that I do like, The Humans is actually one of my all-time favourites. I stopped a little over 200 pages in and I realised he would be repeating the same messages over and over again...

    I'm not really going to review this properly I bought it and read it just for me really. There's nothing much I can say that I haven't said before about this author's writing and sometimes you just want to read a book to kick start your soul again. Suffice to say that as ever after...

    This book gave me so much to contemplate! ...

    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...

    I had heard this book was a sort of follow on from Reasons To Stay Alive. I read Reasons To Stay Alive while I was on holiday in January. And loved it read it in 2 or 3 days and ended up having to start it again as I hadn't thought I would finish it so quickly. Clearly it took me a...

    I read Matt Haig?s previous book ?Reasons To Stay Alive ? last year and absolutely loved it.It dealt with Matt?s personal battle with anxiety and depression. It was so honest you couldn?t help but be affected by the level of suffering he went through. His follow up book ?...

    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 . ...

    The only thing I don't like about this book is that it wasn't around when I was a teenager. Firstly, I just want to say that this book is physically stunning. Beneath the dust jacket, the hardcover is all the colours of the rainbow and it's lovely. I also think the size is great, i...

    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 o...

    Reasons looked inward, Notes looks back out again. Honest and applicable life lessons from one of my favourite contemporary writers and thinkers. I'd call Matt Haig 'a thinker'. As well as enjoying almost every adult and children's novel he's brought out, I can recognise my own life...

    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...

    Jeg kunne virkelig godt lide Reasons to stay alive og denne bog er i princippet en naturlig opfølgning. Men ... måske er den bare ikke rigtig for mig. Den har et stort fokus på, hvad internet og 'connectivity' gør ved os som mennesker, at ro, natur, kærlighed og dyr er godt for os...

    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-ficti...

    Devoured this in a single day. Deliciously yummy. Another Haig triumph. ...

    I'm not really going to review this properly I bought it and read it just for me really. There's nothing much I can say that I haven't said before about this author's writing and sometimes you just want to read a book to kick start your soul again. Suffice to say that as ever after...

    This book gave me so much to contemplate! ...

    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...

    I had heard this book was a sort of follow on from Reasons To Stay Alive. I read Reasons To Stay Alive while I was on holiday in January. And loved it read it in 2 or 3 days and ended up having to start it again as I hadn't thought I would finish it so quickly. Clearly it took me a...

    I read Matt Haig?s previous book ?Reasons To Stay Alive ? last year and absolutely loved it.It dealt with Matt?s personal battle with anxiety and depression. It was so honest you couldn?t help but be affected by the level of suffering he went through. His follow up book ?...

    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 . ...

    This is a world of nerves. Of nervousness (as the title rightly suggests), of anxiety and of excess. Everything is in excess and we do not know when to stop or how to control our lives. We are constantly on the edge and losing the very essence of being human. Our lives are spiraling ou...

    Just read it :) ...

    Amazing!!! ...

    ?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 impr...

    4 stars - It was great. I loved it. A thought provoking look at how rapidly our society has changed over the last 20 years with the advent of modern technological advances. I found a multitude of quotable passages and interesting tidbits. I?m a fan of Haig?s writing, be it fict...

    Notes on a Nervous Planet is Matt Haig's somewhat sequel to Reasons To Stay Alive, in which he looks at the pace and panic of today's world and considers it through the lens of his own mental health issues, particularly anxiety. The style is very similar to the earlier book: short chap...

    I hardly ever dnf a book. Now trust me when I say I know that this book is just like Haig's others; ones that I do like, The Humans is actually one of my all-time favourites. I stopped a little over 200 pages in and I realised he would be repeating the same messages over and over again...

    Matt Haig is bloody wonderful. He just gets it. ...

    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. ...

    It wasn't surprising for me that I would like this book, as I love Matt Haig's writing in general. However, I had one problem that may be an issue for other people, too. There were some paragraphs/chapters that could easily trigger panic attacks, and I think when writing about mental ...

    Like Matt Haig?s previous book ?How to Stay Alive?, ?Notes on a Nervous Planet? is recommended reading for?well, everyone. Our attention is slowly and surely being broken down into short segments and one of the largest culprits is the internet. The flow of free information...
