There are plenty of books out there on how to survive a zombie apocalypse, all-out nuclear war, or Armageddon. But what happens when it feels like the world is ending every single time you wake up? That's what having anxiety is like - and How to Survive the End of the World is here to help. Or at least make you feel like you're not so alone.
From helping readers identify the enemy, to safeguarding the vulnerable areas of their lives, Aaron Gillies will examine the impact of anxiety, and give readers some tools to fight back - whether with medication, therapy, CBT, coping techniques, or simply with a dark sense of humour.
'I LOVED it because it's good to know that I'm not the only one pretending everything's fine, even when everything is fine' Juno Dawson, author of The Gender Games
'Hilarious and deeply insightful' Dean Burnett, author of The Idiot Brain
The end of the world when it’s in your own head
Why did this book have to end. I don’t suffer from anxiety but I know people that do. This book helps all of us understand this awful condition.
Really interesting read
This book is great, honest funny and informative. As someone who suffers with anxiety (not as severely as Aaron) I found these coping mechanisms very useful. Definitely worth a read.
