Praise

The Comfort Book, a collection of aphorisms and inspirational stories of survival against the odds, is a guide to living and finding hope in these disjointed times’ —Guardian

“The bestselling author of Notes on a Nervous Planet and The Midnight Library offers earnest reflections in this thought-provoking, affirming collection that is both personal and universal…With Haig’s trademark empathy and celebration of the resilience of the human heart, this is a book we all need and deserve.” Booklist
 
“The Comfort Book… is brilliant, full of nuggets of profundity to consume when you’re feeling low. And he has a way of discussing mental health that rises above the general confessional noise.” — The Independent (Dublin)

“Profound, witty and uplifting, and a stirring testament to hope and the imagination” ― Observer (London)

“The literary equivalent of a steaming hot chocolate on a chilly day . . . The ideal read for dipping into whenever you need a pick-me-up or change of perspective” ― Metro (London)

“Pick up this book any time you’re in need of a boost of positivity, calm and – as it says on the cover – comfort” ― ELLE (UK)

“Promises two things I can’t get enough of: hugs and lists . . . After a year starved of hope and hugs to the extreme, I can’t think of a greater comfort read than that” ― Evening Standard, Best Summer Reads (London)

“…the book’s unpretentiousness will enable its positive message to reach a wide and grateful readership.” — The Guardian

“Whether it is about fitting in, facing one’s demons or happiness itself, each short anecdote, quote or simple sentence does just what the book aims to do: give comfort” — Evening Express (London)
