Anxious Man: Notes on a life lived nervously (Paperback)
"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.
"The best book I have ever written" Josh Roberts (debut author of Anxious Man)
"Yep, fine" Cali Mackrill (girlfriend of author of Anxious Man)
"Have you seen my scissors?" Vicky Roberts (mother of author of Anxious Man)
Josh Roberts is a writer, broadcaster and public speaker specialising in mental health. Josh was born in Surrey in 1990, and went on to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Trinity College, Dublin.
Following university, Josh began working as at Strategy Consultant before moving into advertising where he worked for global brands such The Times, the Sunday Times and the Financial Times.
In 2016, Josh experienced an intense mental breakdown which culminated in him being diagnosed with a Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). He wrote about this experience in an article for The Times which, following an overwhelming public reaction, led to him writing his first book Anxious Man.
Josh now devotes his time to trying to help others through writing, broadcasting and public speaking. Because, as Josh says, 'when it comes to mental health problems, sometimes just talking about it is enough'.
