So truthful, bold, clear, candid and convincing that I read it in one breathless sitting Stephen Fry One night three years ago Josh Roberts went to a party. The next morning he awoke to discover his mind had collapsed.

In a matter of days he went from being a fun loving, seemingly successful twenty-something to a hot mess of tears and nerves. Eventually he was diagnosed with Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Since then, he's been mending his mind, rediscovering happiness and learning to live his nervous life. Anxious Man is the story of all this.

Told with originality, wit and great humour, it's an essential guide for mental health and a thought-provoking exploration of the millennial condition.
