Matt Haig at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

The modern world can make us feel like the walls are closing in, but a vanguard of writers are here to help us cope – and none more so than Matt Haig. After the storming success of Reasons to Stay Alive comes Notes on a Nervous Planet, a wise and witty guide to kicking the habits around everything from sleep to social media to work that are making us less happy. Enjoy an hour that will soothe your 21st century anxieties. Lennie Goodings chairs this event, which was filmed live at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
