Matt Haig on why modern life is making us stressed

We're very excited to be joined by author Matt Haig for the latest episode to chat about his new book!

Notes on a Nervous Planet is the follow up to Matt's best-selling book Reasons to Stay Alive, which covered his experiences of anxiety and depression. One of his recent books, How to Stop Time, is set to be made into a movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch.

In this episode, we talk to Matt about why modern life seems designed to stress us out and how we need to find ways to disconnect.

Notes on a Nervous Planet is published by Canongate priced £12.99 and goes on sale on 5 July.
